Embedding Global Mobility at the Heart of Business Strategy

FIGT members are invited to read this report, which is now available in the Members Section of the FIGT website (remember to log in!)

The Global Mobility survey continues to be the largest in the world, with 1,122 professionals responsible for Global Mobility programs across 64 countries taking part!

This year, for the first time these findings have been complemented by gathering the views of 58 strategic Business Leaders to understand the perceived importance of Mobility to international businesses and contrast their views with Mobility professionals to assess how Mobility can take its rightful seat at the top table.
