Employees in 20 Countries Assess Employee Mobility for a Total Global Perspective

Canadian Employee Relocation Council


The 2017 Canadian Employee Relocation Council’s (CERC) Global Mobility Survey marks the third edition of the ground-breaking survey first conducted in 2011. The 2017 survey, conducted in partnership with Ipsos Global Public Affairs, reports on the attitudes of 10,091 working women and men in 20 countries towards international relocation for employment purposes. The Ipsos Global @dvisor poll was conducted between February 17th, 2017 and March 3rd, 2017.

Once again, this report provides a global perspective on the willingness of employees to move to another country for the purposes of employment. Given the growing skills shortages being experienced in many regions of the world, labour mobility is playing an increasingly important role in meeting those shortages. Where possible the report has identified certain trends observed since the findings of the 2012 study. The 2017 survey included several new questions relating to immigration, social security and education that were not covered in the 2012 report. The global poll is sponsored by BDO Global, the Council for Global Immigration, Crown World Mobility, Dwellworks LLC, EuRA, Randstad Holding NV, TheMIGroup, and Weichert Workforce Mobility. The report provides insights based on major industry grouping, country of residence and factors that would most likely motivate or incent a global employee to accept an employer sponsored relocation for employment purposes.
