Mobility Disruptor #1: Top Talent Says “NO!” to a Relocation
Securing talent is hard right now. Not only do a large portion of companies have employees decline relocations, hiring new talent in general is increasingly difficult.
2/3rds of companies had employees decline relocations in 20161
40% of hiring managers report difficulties hiring2
46% struggle to find available talent2
This makes it extra hard on talent acquisition and mobility professionals who are seeking to find the best candidates for domestic and international relocations. In fact, talent is often not aligned with mobility needs, leading to gaps in assignment readiness. Seventy-three percent of companies say they lack a pool of ready and willing candidates for international assignments.3 Are you having these conversations with your own talent to determine their readiness? Do you know what makes them hesitate?
Watch our mini 5-minute webinar to discover best practices to overcome this mobility disruptor and hear “YES!” more often in 2018.
