The Global Mobility Survey is the largest and most robust survey of companies and their global mobility programmes worldwide. The study surveyed HR departments and their employee mobility functions in over 1,200 companies across a range of industry sectors in 70 countries.

According to their researchers, Global Mobility and HR professionals who manage their company’s employee mobility programme can now request login details at, where they can gain access to the survey’s powerful data analysis tool.

The data analysis tool gives users total freedom to analyse results from the 2013 Global Mobility Survey. This means that for Global Mobility, HR Professional or International Business Managers, you can now find results based on your own parameters and answer questions such as:

  •     What is the average size of a mobility department that has the same number of assignments per year as their business?
  •     What are the key challenges when bring assignees into a particular country?
  •     What strategies and tools are other companies in the industry sector using to manage their mobility costs?
  •     What are other companies that are similar to mine offering in their assignment packages?

Benchmark Your Programme

The key benefit of the Web Portal is that it allows users the option to compare themselves to more than 1,200 companies – or a very specific and relevant segment thereof. This means users can easily compare your programme with organisations that have similar characteristics to theirs, for example pharmaceutical companies based in the US with more than 100 assignments per annum.

The Web Portal draws on its data set to provide answers to users' questions. For example, the analysis tool can tell you the most popular IT system that other people are using for programmes similar in size to theirs, and what areas of compliance these companies are focusing on.

This means that when it comes to creating supporting business cases or making policy decisions, people can turn to the benchmarking tool for answers.

Identify Your Own Trends

The Report provided a very clear picture of what was happening at a global level, but the Web Portal gives its users the freedom to explore and investigate their own theories by drilling down further into the data to cross compare results and identify trends that many would have not yet have considered. The online analysis tool enables users to ‘play’ with the data and find answers to their own questions in relation to their own programmes.

Sharing Knowledge is Better for Everyone

The people at the Global Mobility Survey believe that sharing information makes things better for everyone. Once they access the data analysis tool, they can use screen shots of the graph results for presentations, articles, websites, blogs or documents by referencing
