Changing perspectives: How assignee views have evolved during COVID-19 and why it matters

Date: 18 November, 2020 5:00 AM

End: 1 December, 2021 4:59 AM

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the global mobility landscape, throwing up new and complex challenges for both employers and employees. Much attention has been given to the way organizations are adapting to meet these challenges. But how are assignees and potential assignees, responding to the concept of an international assignment during these changing and unpredictable times? Recent research* has uncovered some noteworthy insights into the viewpoints of assignees, both current and future, that are of critical importance to any organization undertaking a global mobility program.
  1. Employees still want to undertake international assignments. While there is no doubt that COVID-19 and resulting restrictions have impacted the extent to which there is an appetite for undertaking international assignments, recent research* has shown that assignees still wish to pursue them, albeit more cautiously. Additionally, much of what attracted employees to undertake international assignments has been diminished by the current pandemic. For example, the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures, previously a key benefit for many international assignees, has been significantly reduced or, in some cases, eliminated entirely. Employers will likely have to emphasize other benefits to encourage international assignment consideration.
  2. The focus of concern has shifted. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was natural for all assignees to experience some doubts about pursuing an international assignment. However, new challenges have presented themselves as a result of the pandemic, and are now at the forefront of assignee’s minds when considering an international move. A recent survey**, noted that potential assignees were increasingly concerned by the ability to travel between the host and home countries, schooling arrangements for dependents and handling of the pandemic in the host country. Organizations should be transparent about these issues and provide as much support as possible to any potential assignee faced with making the decision to undertake an international assignment. 
  3. Assignees are more aware of their support needs. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, assignees are acutely aware of the kinds of difficulties that may arise during their assignment. The need for a comprehensive package of support is more apparent than ever, and potential assignees will likely expect greater reassurance that this is in place. It will be more important than ever for all organizations planning international assignments to ensure that their provision for support meets the expectations of their assignees. Now more than ever there is a greater focus on Duty of Care.
With this in mind, organizations will need to be prepared to present a robust relocation package in order to continue to encourage assignees to undertake international assignments. While the appetite for these assignments is still there, employees will need to feel increasingly reassured that any potential move will be a positive and worthwhile experience for them and their families.

The Best of Both Worlds? Three Key Considerations When Undertaking a Commuter Assignment

Date: 14 October, 2020 4:00 AM

Commuter assignments are on the rise! An increasing number of organizations now see them as a viable mobility program component. In a recent survey,  24% of respondents indicated their organizations were planning to add commuter assignments to their mobility suite.* There are a number of benefits to the commuter assignment model, which can offer a good compromise between full relocation and remaining in the home location. In many cases these types of assignment are likely to be more appealing to employees because they do not require as much upheaval and disruption for them and their family. In the age of COVID-19, commuter assignments provide balance for organizations needing to continue their mobility program, but who want to mitigate risk and have more control in the midst of continued uncertainty and rapid change. 

Along with the advantages, there are a few potential pitfalls that should be top of mind when considering a commuter assignment option.

Work/life balance. The ability to minimize disruption to an employee’s home life is an especially appealing aspect of a commuter assignment, particularly in cases where a partner or spouse wishes to maintain their own career in the home location. But the logistics of commuting to and from the host location impact an assignee’s health and wellbeing. Prolonged absences from the family, and from home, should not be overlooked. 

Compliance. Commuter assignments can trigger a number of compliance issues that can cause difficulties for both the assignee and the organization. Depending on the frequency and length of commuter stays in the host country, there can be both tax and immigration requirements that need to be closely managed. This could result in additional costs and resource requirements for the organization to ensure they remain compliant for the duration of the assignment. 

Management and cost.  When an employee is continuously moving between two locations there is a greater burden on those departments responsible for managing the assignment, such as HR and Finance. Not only does there need to be support for the employee in both locations, but additional and ongoing resources can also be required to track the employee, as well as manage and finance their travel and accommodation requirements. This can present logistical and financial burdens above those that would be incurred as part of a traditional international assignment.

While there are clear benefits to commuter assignments, it is important for organizations to think holistically, giving full consideration to the potential disadvantages in any individual case. Where organizations opt for this type of assignment, it is paramount that it is carefully planned and managed to ensure it remains compliant and beneficial to the assignee and the organization.
