Employee Relocation and Mobility Policies Need Greater Flexibility
An essential element for business success is the ability for employers to find and place talent where an organization needs it, and the challenges presented by the pandemic have proven that they need to be agile and prepared. Some organizations are recognizing that need for greater flexibility in their relocation policies as almost half (43%) agree or strongly agree that relocation policies have been updated in the past 12 months to accommodate flexible working arrangements.
