2:45, Moderator’s closing remarks and announcing next events


MEMO from the Producer/Editor: Defining the Talent Pipeline and the strategic role of Talent Mobility today is a great topic for conversations.

We love bringing together business people to talk in this time of changes – economic development, demographics, cultural growth, global talent, flex/remote working, cross-border communications, and business formations.  Our platforms: LIVE events; online; podcast/radio talkshows; business referrals & video production. 

For example, a customer of GLOBAL HR NEWS, Munich-based Olivier Meier, Mercer, has written: “In practice, talent mobility is a combination of international moves and lateral mobility between job functions. The increased focus on the development of talent means that talent mobility managers are increasingly perceived (or at least want to be viewed) as employee experience curators. Digitalization, increased mobility (in many forms and not just traditional expatriation) and rise of remote working are changing the employees’ experience. Ensuring smooth relocation or virtual international collaboration requires new approaches and tools.” 

What’s the company trying to achieve with talent mobility? 

How are companies forecasting the assignment objectives and the costs?

How will they measure performance of the Assignee? 

How will companies utilize the assignee’s new skill-sets?

Another customer, UK-based Michael Elia offers this:  “How can people and organisations flourish through the global assignment experience?     How can we create competitive advantage through global assignments?’

I invite you to be involved; join the conversations on OCTOBER 30 at BMO then follow-up by visiting the site   then go deeper.  I invite you to participate…YOUR VOICE MATTERS TO US.
