Global Mobility from a corporate HR point of view

Global Mobility (GM) is about sending the right people to the right place at the right time and the right costs.

This -at first sight- plain definition hides a myriad of roles, tasks, required competencies, stakeholders and (hidden) agendas and ranges from operational activities to strategic advisory at the highest level of the organisation.

In this arena of competing (and often conflicting) interests and continuously changing requirements, the GM function has become a specialisation that serves many interests and harbours many (academic) disciplines, irrespective where the function sits, beit internally, mostly the corporate HR department, or externally, with third parties that are increasingly insourcing HR GM tasks, such as Relocation Management Companies, destination service providers and consultants. 

This online certification course is geared towards Relocation professionals and newly arrived HR GM staff who need to get up to speed with case handling in all its different facets. It puts the GM function in the centre of attention and provides an overall approach to working with international workforce from an corporate HR point of view.
