Global Mobility & United States Bringing Global Mobility to the Land of Opportunity Global Mobility in the United States is an attractive opportunity. There are a lot of positives and some unique challenges. 10 GMJ Ambassadors, Global Mobility HR members of Global Mobility Journeys act as guides on this exciting voyage. Global Mobility and those on assignment in the United States can really benefit. From a cultural perspective, the US is a very attractive location for a lot of individuals just because of the massive amount of cultural diversity. So, depending upon where you go, most major cities are going to have a huge variety of different cultures and you'll see that not only in restaurants but in shops and certain locations and neighborhoods.
Anything that you can find out about the assignee and their circumstances going into the United States is going to help you to be the best supporting global mobility professional to them and really enhance that employee experience. One of the key challenges that had been top of mind for the past several years was just having to navigate through U.S. immigration. The U.S. Immigration and Tax systems are areas the Assignee and family will need support in learning as we well as the U.S. Credit system. But overall, the United States is the largest market for many companies, massive opportunities for individuals and has a lot to offer to all.
Evolving Global Mobility What will Global Mobility look like in the Future? Global Mobility, Talent Mobility.. what is next.. what does the future hold ? The GMJ Ambassadors (Global Mobility HR) discuss ways Mobility has changed and predict what may be next. Global Mobility and by proxy Talent Mobility will expand. It will have more knowledge of risk and compliance management. It's interesting because global mobility along with the benefits that it has, because of the growing talent and because we were building capabilities of other people, somehow there is a huge cost to it. So there is a budget that is contributed to this relocation in the future ways of working with the hires, the technology and the new information that we're receiving. We will have to start looking at virtual assignments or working from different locations for the new one and really looking to reduce the number of mobilization. So that's the coming in new ways because of the recent changes.

Global Mobility & Immigration At the center of Relocation is Immigration Moving an employee across borders to work the key element of any Global Mobility program and without effective Immigration processes this would not be possible. Immigration is what Global Mobility HR Professionals need to be aware of and always in tune with. You want to avoid having a situation where the employee gets to the airport and they're denied entry because they either don't have the proper visa or the proper paperwork in order to enter that country. Immigration is actually the first piece
of the puzzle of Global Mobility - done right it makes for a smooth as possible Global Mobility program.
Global Mobility Stories to Remember It all starts with... Global Mobility Careers start often with that desire to learn about the International side of working. Exploring the relationships that come about as a result. So a lot of people kind of fall into mobility, whether it's through working on a team or because they have an interest in international work. And for me, I actually got my university degree in human resources in international business.
