    Future of Remote Work - AIRINC Benchmark Report

    COVID-19, Global Mobility, and the Workforce of the Future

    COVID-19 has left an indelible mark on Global Mobility and the workforce of the future. The sudden (and potentially sustained) use of remote work arrangements, a transformed employee experience, and evolving business strategies are all opportunities for Global Mobility.

    Over 40% of companies have either already changed or are planning a review of their mobility program due to COVID-19. The biggest drivers for change are increased flexibility for the business, cost containment, aligning with talent strategy, and improving the employee experience.

    52% of companies expect overall global mobility activity (assignments, transfers, etc.) to remain the same or increase, although how this activity
    looks may change. Traditional policies will still be used, but companies expect increased use of virtual assignments, international business travel, and short-term assignments compared to pre-COVID-19 days. Global Mobility will be using its full suite of policy types to meet business needs and attract and retain talent.
