The reality of today’s talent acquisition process is that our search area can be the world. With the U.S. at almost full employment nationally and technology’s ability to grant access to a world of potential employees, relocation takes on a new meaning. Globalization has allowed us to move into markets we may not have considered in the past, and that has also provided us with opportunity to use assignments in other countries as learning and development opportunities to support our talent development plans. But how do we get current and prospective employees from here to there and how do we make it an enriching experience for them and their family?
Please join Nina Woodard for a discussion of the key questions organizations need to answer before they start to build their approach and policy for relocation. We will identify the key elements to be considered and included in a policy. We will also determine how to leverage this policy to be a part of the employee value proposition, part of your strategic approach to talent management, part of the employee’s learning and development.
