"I am delighted to share this ground breaking research project with the mobility community. EuRA and the Canadian Employee Relocation Council have worked together to deliver a research project that will form guidance for all mobility professionals over the coming decade. Global mobility is evolving. As a newer phenomenon in the corporate world, the nature of the globally mobile workforce has been changing since it appeared in the 1950’s and 1960’s. For our industry, trying to identify patterns in mobility programmes is key to delivering the services the clients need as well as to staying successful.
With the goal of helping our industry to adapt and thrive, EuRA and the Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC) commissioned a broad ranging study to research the research. The aim was to identify the trends that will drive our industry over the next decade and beyond. Based on 57 reports published between 2011 and the end of 2015, the study encompassed meta data taken from more than 25,000 respondents in over 40 countries. The reports were taken from those published by mobility think tanks, governments, financial institutions, associations and relocation management companies. This report is essential reading for anyone involved in relocation."
One of the first steps by the research team, was to identify the markers of change for our industry and four issues were highlighted;
•Transfer to a knowledge based economy
•Technology and the digital age

"In the winter of 2015, EuRA and the Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC) began a research project to explore the wide spectrum of survey research conducted on global employee mobility. This project symbolizes the growing partnership between our two organizations, and I hope will lead to more collaboration and cooperation in the years to come. From demographic shifts, to rapid advances in technology, growth in globalization and emerging markets, all will impact the mobility industry.
Today’s business leaders must be capable of operating in a global business world that is more technologically advanced, demographically complex and geographically diverse than ever before in history. Talent mobility will be an important part of the solution to these challenges.
This report gathers some of the best research from a wide array of sources and provides insights about how our industry can respond to these modern realities and challenges that are shaping our workplaces and economies."
