The way we work has changed. With increasingly global, mobile and remote workforces, businesses now need to understand how immigration, tax and other compliance matters can affect a team’s global agility. A technology-led, automated and self-service approach can see many organisations take mobility planning to the next level.
For the workforce, global mobility programs are becoming important career development opportunities and tangible employee benefits. Done well, they not only attract the best new talent but also help retain long-term employees and improve satisfaction levels. They can also increase transparency across the business, help leadership teams understand their people better, and offer an improved service to clients.
However, compliance can be a significant concern when designing an effective program.
“Understandably, organisations can struggle to stay up to date with evolving immigration, tax and other compliance matters across jurisdictions. That’s magnified when you consider the need to balance cost-efficiency, talent strategy and growth objectives against existing global mobility schemes and planned initiatives.”
With remote working requests, cross border projects, global mobility and the demand for talent on the rise, it’s important to understand the impact of immigration on your mobility strategy. Changes to immigration rules and legislation are now more frequent, and sanctions more stringent, making it important to have the right information at your fingertips. But just obtaining this information can be difficult and costly. This can be an even bigger challenge for those organisations that cover multiple jurisdictions, particularly where interpreting local legislation may also be necessary.
This is where we can help.

As organisations look to embrace new ways of working, they’re likely to move towards a ‘work from anywhere’ approach. However, this means their global mobility planning needs to move up to the next level. This is where understanding is key. A better appreciation of the costs, timings and feasibility of any proposed move allows organisations to plan more efficiently and make informed decisions around any mobility strategy. Having the right knowledge at the right time makes an organisation more agile, more compliant and ultimately more competitive.
