Planning for the challenging, but exciting, future of talent mobility

Updated: Sep 5

TALENT MOBILITY: As international moves look to regain momentum, consultancy ECA International warns talent mobility teams must now grapple with a new set of challenges posed by the pandemic.


These include:

  • Markets across the world experiencing their worst inflation in decades, prompting fears of recession.

  • Governments prioritising the job security of local workforces, leaving the stability of some expatriate positions unsettled.

  • Major shifts in employee priorities, as physical and mental health concerns take centre stage, presenting new considerations around talent retention.


Companies must therefore continue to keep the needs of their expatriate employees at the forefront, and support them through conscious effort and flexible policies.
