Are virtual assignments the future of Global Mobility? Do companies already have a policy in place to address this type of mobility?

Consistently, when I ask people what they like about working in global mobility, they say, “No day is ever the same.” It is that daily diversity that keeps professionals engaged. And no wonder global mobility is so dynamic; it involves so many disciplines, and it is a deeply human field.
