CARTUS | 2018 TRENDS IN GLOBAL RELOCATION BIGGEST CHALLENGES SURVEY 3 INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES Cartus’ 2018 Trends in Global Relocation: Biggest Challenges survey—the sixth in our series of Biggest Challenges surveys—elicited responses from 205 mobility managers around the world. This study is a continuation of our investigation into the challenges facing global mobility managers, what they are doing to address those challenges, and hot topics including flexible policy, talent management, diversity and inclusion. All major industry groups are included, and the respondents are multinational companies representing more than nine million employees worldwide. Survey data was collected in Q4, 2017, and analyzed/released in 2018. We would like to extend a special thank you to the mobility managers that took the time to share their valuable insights and experiences with us. This report is largely the result of their hard work and collaboration.

CARTUS | 2018 TRENDS IN GLOBAL RELOCATION BIGGEST CHALLENGES SURVEY 4 Cartus’ 2018 Biggest Challenges study looked at new and ongoing issues that companies have indicated represent challenges in their global mobility programs. Of the six challenges studied this year, just one—data security—is brand new to the survey. The topics of immigration and tax compliance were studied in 2015, but within the more general category of “complying with laws and regulations.” This year, they were separated and expanded upon individually, and 2015’s topic of “safety and security” was expanded to include “duty of care,” a specific topic in which companies have expressed interest. Data security was added as a new area of challenge this year. Several issues that were explored in 2015 that did not report out as significant challenges, including schooling, environmental and medical issues, and transportation were not included in the 2018 report. The top three challenges named by survey respondents were cost control, immigration, and tax compliance. While “controlling relocation/assignment costs” was cited most frequently by respondents as the top challenge faced in managing their international mobility programs, it did drop 10 percentage points from 2015.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
