Principles of Global Mobility

This online course provides a full guide to the lifecycle of an international assignment, from candidate selection and pre-assignment compliance checks, through relocation to the end of the assignment.

Participants will come away with a full understanding of key mobility concepts including the different types of international assignment, typical assignment allowances and how to calculate salary and benefit packages. The course uses case studies and exercises to give participants practical knowledge that can be applied in the workplace.

In addition, the course explores employee experience and discusses ways to ensure a successful assignment.

I really like how the course follows the complete GM lifecycle. From the basics around assignment types to how to get a full picture of costs, it covers a lot of ground, and the playful visuals are great! Definitely very beneficial for anyone starting out in Global Mobility.
