That translates into hundreds of thousands of employees around the world facing the twin challenges of delivering on the strategies their organizations require and acclimating themselves, and sometimes their families, to new cultures, languages and policies. Managing a globally mobile workforce isn’t easy, but for those companies willing to accept the challenge the payoff can be significant.
This research study serves as a benchmark for organizations to compare themselves to other multinational companies who have navigated the road to defining, deploying and developing a truly global workforce

- Assignment Types
