Mobility and employee diversity

This form of agility is what gives organisations a competitive advantage.
Agility and globalisation
For a business to be agile, they need to be global. Connectivity gives the world choice when it comes to business. Addressing global market developments requires quick thinking and adaptability on behalf of the business. Therefore, worldwide market requires businesses to leverage their agility to achieve business success on the global scale.
Employees expect mobility
Employees have now come to expect to receive international opportunities at some point in their career from their employers. Relocating employees around the world is simply part of working within the globalised market so having a reliable and successful global mobility program in place is crucial in attracting and retaining talent.

This requires relocation. Having a successful global mobility program in place now allows companies to adapt to these changes as they occur. An agile business can prepare for the impact automation is expected to have on recruitment, retention and development.
