Global Mobility: The trends shaping business travel and remote work

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, businesses and workers faced a myriad of challenges which were unprecedented. Employees working internationally faced new hurdles and for organisations around the world, cross-border projects became far more complex as nations implemented their own strict travel restrictions.

Now, two years into the pandemic, a much more fluid work environment has emerged. Communication and remote working technologies have vastly improved, alleviating some of the initial challenges faced. These advancements have heralded new and flexible ways of working with cross-border teams and customers.

In this webinar, our guest panellist, Adam Evans, Group Global Mobility Manager of L’Occitane Group, the global leader in the manufacturing and retail of natural cosmetics and well-being products, is joined by RSM’s Global Employer Services (GES) leaders –

  • Rob Mander, international tax consultant at RSM International
  • Brian James, Director of Global Employer Services, RSM Netherlands
  • Augustin de la Chapelle, Director of Global Employer Services, RSM Switzerland
  • Joanne Webber, Partner at RSM UK 

In this session, our experts explore the following key questions;

  • What does the future of GES look like, and what are the opportunities and the challenges that still exist?
  • Is the appetite growing amongst businesses for short-term international assignments or are the now widely adopted virtual working arrangements becoming the preferred way to operate?
  • As the workforce becomes more mobile, and short-term business traveller management becomes more complex, how do organisations mitigate the complexity and stay on top of the ever-evolving compliance requirements?
  • What adaptations need to be made to current policies for them to continue to be effective in the new environment, and why do organisations need policies for short-term business travellers?
  • How are organisations supporting their global remote working, and how has this changed as the pandemic has evolved?
  • What are the top three priorities for an organisation to gain better control over the short-term business population?
