What to expect in Global Mobility. Trends for 2023

December 12, 2022 | xpath.global

The world of global mobility is constantly changing as companies continue to expand their reach and operations across the globe. With this comes the need for an effective strategy when it comes to relocating employees and managing their international assignments. As we look ahead to 2023, what can we expect from current global mobility trends? Let’s take a look.

Remote work & flexible working hours

Remote work in global mobility.


As more companies move towards remote work, this will also have an effect on global mobility. More and more people are becoming increasingly comfortable with the concept of working remotely. This has opened up a wide range of opportunities for international assignments and relocations. Working remotely eliminates geographical boundaries, enabling access to talent from all over the world regardless of location or distance.

Flexible working hours are also becoming increasingly popular, allowing employees to work at times that better suit their lifestyle. This trend is only likely to increase in 2023 as companies become even more open to different ways of working.

Global mobility cross-functional assignments


In 2023, we can expect to see cross-functional assignments increase as companies seek out new talents around the globe.

This means that employees may be required to relocate for longer periods of time. They may even move permanently in order to fulfil a role outside of their current area of expertise. Cross-functional assignments are a great way for organizations to access new skills without investing in additional personnel or training costs.

Increased use of technology & data analytics

Technology has already had a huge impact on global mobility in the last decade. However, in 2023 we expect this trend to continue as organizations look for more efficient and streamlined processes.

Technology such as data analytics can help employers understand the changing needs of their workforce. On top, this can ensure that they are able to provide the right resources at the right time. Automation is another key area where technology will come into play, helping employers manage relocation expenses, while still being compliant.

Conclusion

As the world of work continues to evolve, global mobility is becoming an increasingly important factor for businesses. By 2023, organizations that embrace remote work, flexible working hours and the utilization of technology and data analysis will be best positioned to capitalize on shifts in global mobility trends.

The benefits of implementing such strategies are wide-reaching.

By taking advantage of existing tools like data analytics and automation, organizations can ensure that their global mobility programs remain up-to-date, cost-effective, and compliant with all necessary regulations.
