The Future of Global Mobility


Short-term assignments are gaining popularity. The traditional three-year, family-and-all assignment is no longer the obvious choice. Contemporary global assignments are more likely to be relatively short-term, and often on a project basis

This naturally influences topics like labour law, tax, social security, immigration, relocation, compliance and IT solutions. But also pandemics, like Covid-19 force us to rethink, re-evaluate and adapt global mobility solutions

To know what the future brings, we asked Vlerick Business School to conduct a study about the future of global mobility. The results of this study will be presented during our seminar on the 15th of October. Trends and challenges will be discussed with several experts. All participants will get the opportunity to discuss certain topics with experts in breakout-groups.


12:30 - Welcome
12:40 - Presentation of the short-term assignments study (Vlerick Business School)
13:15 - Testimonials of two participants of the short-term assignments study
13:30 - Q&A

14:30 - End of conference

EXTRA - Participants can get to know the panelists after the conference in two digital meeting rooms. More information will be sent directly to registered participants.
