"A small company like ours cannot afford the bells and whistles of global mobility. It's so complicated and costly!"

If that is your state of mind, I invite you to read on.

If there are some tricks of the trade and some risk components to be managed, most of what constitutes an effective mobility program is derived from well packaged common sense processes connected with your people strategy and which have strong support from business leadership.

In this two-part article, we are examining how smaller and mid-size companies with global reach can approach a light-weight, but yet every effective, global mobility program.

The first part addresses alignment with business strategy, people strategy and talent management.

The second part focuses on compensation, policy & package design and logistical support around international assignments.
