Over the past few years, COVID-19 has shaken the world, forcing organisations to review and redefine their talent mobility strategies as cross-border movement became restricted. As the world emerges from COVID-19, economic uncertainty prevails with the rising cost of living and low economic growth. Once again, organisations are challenged to find global mobility solutions to strengthen business resilience in an ever-changing business landscape while balancing evolving business needs and supporting international assignees.
