Recently, I was privileged to speak at The European Relocation Association (EuRA)’s annual summit. This network supports service providers as they help their clients with globally mobile employees.
The results are in! On May 19, the top 100 service providers were released in the much-anticipated View From The Top podcast. Congratulations to all the winners! AIRINC is especially proud to announce that 3 of our employees made the list: Morgan Crosby, Mike Wincott, and Pat Jurgens.
AIRINC is proud to be one of several organizations partnering with Benivo to support their initiative to recognize the top 100 Global Mobility professionals among service providers. At AIRINC, our approach to client success is summed up by our credo, Listen | Partner | Deliver. This proven formula allows us to consult to understand our client’s needs and to create solutions that solve problems.
One of the clear trends we have seen over the last year is the focus on companies mobilising their workforce innovatively, as normal talent flows have been displaced.
The voice of the business and assignees is important: Gathering feedback through Voice of the Customer (VOC) surveys of both assignees and the business is essential to measuring success and creating a best-in-class mobility program. It is inspiring to see the automotive industry leading the charge in listening to their customers to understand what they value and how Global Mobility can deliver on those needs.
2020 was the most challenging year for Global Mobility. However, it gave mobility teams the time to reflect and demonstrate their value and global perception to their overall organizations. Global Mobility’s goals remain steadfast in a pre-, during-, and post-COVID-19 world: to help attract and retain key global talent. The results from Pharmaceutical companies in the Mobility Outlook Survey indicate this mission is still in the forefront for the coming year with increased focus on how mobility can best serve their customers, business functions, and assignees.
The landscape for shipping was already bad when the Ever Given got stuck in the Suez Canal. The pandemic had already caused a shipping container shortage, driving up the cost of shipments worldwide. The recent Suez Canal blockage will presumably only add to the misery of expensive and delayed shipments. The timing for the mobility industry could not be worse.
Global Mobility Top 100 Service Providers: AIRINC is one of several organizations partnering with Benivo to support this initiative, so we asked some of our clients around the world what qualities and strengths they thought top service providers should possess. Here’s what they came up with:
On March 11th, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021, representing a $1.9 trillion tax and spending package targeted towards economic recovery and health impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. The new law, supported and fast-tracked by Congressional Democrats and the White House, contains a wide array of provisions. Among those relevant to individuals, ARPA provides another round of direct stimulus payments to eligible taxpayers, temporarily increases several low and middle income tax credits, includes significant state and local assistance, funds vaccine production and distribution, and extends the federal supplement to state unemployment benefits through September 6, 2021.
