International Employee Engagement throughout and beyond COVID-19

COVID-19 has posed new, unexpected challenges for international employee engagement and Corporate Global Mobility faces a continuing dilemma.

International hiring is riskier, more complex and more costly. Employees are reconsidering the benefits of working abroad in light of the increased risks for them and their families. Against all this, the nature of global opportunities has changed and it’s difficult to say whether those changes will ever be reversed.

All this leads to some important questions. What are the new barriers to mobility that we need to overcome? What holds people back from going on assignment? What is it going to take to get the world moving again?

Collectively, these questions present new and difficult barriers for corporations to overcome as they look to engage employees in international work. As an industry, it’s important that we face these challenges together and develop new best practice to return to a semblance of normality.

The RES Forum’s next survey focusses on these issues. The resulting paper will examine the differences in employee engagement before COVID-19 and explore how this will change as the world emerges from the pandemic.

The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes and your response will help shape the future narrative around employee engagement in global mobility.

Thanks for your support.

The RES Forum has developed a comprehensive suite of Global Mobility Policy Analytics Tools which are freely available to members.

The Long & Short Term Assignment, Extended Business Trip, Business Commuter and Risk Tools allow companies to compare (on an anonymous basis) their Assignment Policies against all other RES member participants. Companies who have already input responses have the ability to change these, model scenarios and see the impact on overall weight and cost of any proposed changes relative to others. The rich quality data helps derive clear insights for users and stakeholders which can viewed and easily downloaded in pdf format.As we move forward improving, evolving and developing the tools to maintain their relevance in the ever-changing world of Global Mobility is vital. We would therefore like to obtain your input to help shape our future direction.

As a valued RES Forum member we would therefore be grateful if you could spare 5 minute to complete our survey.
