    5. Effective Employee Relocation Planning for Brexit and Beyond

    Brexit makes 2019 an interesting year for the UK as negotiations come to a head. Most companies have contingency plans, but what additional steps can companies take to plan business decisions against the backdrop of the UK’s future relationship with Europe and the rest of the world?

    For HR and global mobility, there are non-negotiable employment factors to be managed, such as: immigration rules, right to work and settled status requirements and these have been covered extensively elsewhere.

    4. The Future of Entry-Level Employees

    Benivo and AIRINC ran an exciting study at the end of 2018 entitled The Future of Entry-Level Mobility.

    The goal was to explore how companies are adapting to increasing numbers of candidates and employees who relocate for work, and the shift to a higher percent of early-career individuals among them.

    99 global firms participated, with representation across more than 10 industries and teams located in EMEIA, the Americas, and APAC. Most notably among our key findings was that 85% of Global Mobility teams believe creating a wider selection of basic policies is a strategic opportunity.
