Rapid business globalization has demanded that multinational organizations reexamine their talent mobility practices to compete effectively in the talent war. While the increased focus on talent mobility is universal among organizations, existing policy and
process vary depending on overall business strategy and organizational maturity. Organizations are developing local talent as well as deploying personnel from the United States and Europe in emerging markets in Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
This background prompted researchers at Towers Watson and Worldwide ERC® to partner in surveying mobility professionals in these three regions to study the following questions:
- How are organizations headquartered in Asia, Europe and the United States changing the way they approach talent mobility as part of their talent management strategy?
- How different are the existing policies and processes across these three regions? Are there commonalities in the overall process?
- How effective is the current mobility structure in attracting and retaining key talent?
Survey respondents represent over one hundred organizations across various industries. The number of employees per
organization ranges from as few as 70 to 280,000. Combined, respondents employ 1.8 million employees worldwide and
average 29,533 employees per company. View the Executive Digest.
