6:05 PM Aligning Talent Mobility and Internal Hiring to Improve Retention and Advance Your Global Workforce

Mobility opportunities and internal hiring are a key factor to aid employee retention, as well as attracting and engaging the next generation of employees: 71% of millennials say they want and expect an overseas assignment during their careers. (Pwc, 2015). Organizations will need to move and deploy talent quickly and find ways to overcome external challenges such as tax, social security and immigration requirements. Recruiting strategies will need to be more sophisticated to manage growing deployment and relocation demands, and at the same time handle different needs and expectations of four generations of workers – baby boomers, generation X, millenials and generation Z. Currently, most internal hiring occurs on a case-by-case basis with very few organized programs in place.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Strategies to define the best programs for internal recruiting and mobility, to boost your retention rates
  • Aligning global sourcing and deployment with wider business strategy
  • Leveraging the role of technology to support global working arrangements
  • Designing a well-defined program for advancement opportunities and lateral opportunities
  • Integrating mobile opportunities into your employee value proposition for Millennials
