Global Mobility Trends Report - 2021 - Tax and Legal blog


Not least of all due to the significant changes heralded by the COVID-19 pandemic, the world of work has been disrupted and new business and organisational models and patterns are emerging. This is particularly so in the area of global mobility.

Deloitte has carried out keynote research, interviewed global talent leaders and analysed boarder business and human capital developments in reaching the insights incapsulated in our Autumn Global Mobility Report 2021.

The predominant trends in Global Mobility, which may be of interest to your organisation are:

1. From career to portfolio – global mobility enables the global talent strategy

2. Virtual working – global mobility plays a leading role in helping the business adapt to remote working

3. Hyper inclusive workplace – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) remains a high priority for leaders, yet tangible progress has been slow

4. Worker wellbeing – wellbeing should be embedded into the design of work and mobility on an individual, team and organisation level

5. Protectionist trade policies & immigration complexity– the immigration landscape has become complex and uncertain because of Covid-19 and this has impacted local labor and immigration backlogs

6. Digital workforce experience – global mobility programmes that can effectively use data, and combine people and technology, will lead to better outcomes

7. #StayOnTheGround – Covid-19 has provided an opportunity for organisations to pause and develop meaningful responses to the climate crisis.

The complete Autumn Global Mobility Trends Report 2021 can be accessed on our website.
