How This Impacts Mobility
Mobility professionals, businesses with international staff, and employees on international travel will also need to stay on top of travel and visa restrictions. Currently travel to and from China is quite restricted, with most major airlines cancelling flights to and from the region. Major airports around the world are also establishing checkpoints where travelers may have to undergo a health screening. Wuhan, which has a high number of foreign workers, is experiencing a travel lockdown and some foreign nationals have already repatriated. Visa processing delays are likely as visa appointments are cancelled and visa processing centers shutting down.
Taking these important steps of educating and assisting employees can help protect employees’ health and safety and demonstrate the value companies place on the well-being of their workforce—important to recruitment and retention.
