Perceptions of Employee Mobility in a Climate of Change

March 07, 2018


The market for skilled employees has gone global. To compete, Canadian business owners need to understand the motivations and goals of mobile workers. The right incentives can not only attract the best international talent — they can help pave the road when transferring employees abroad.

This Employee Mobility Report studies mobility from the employee’s point of view — a departure from the employer-driven approach favoured by most research. You will learn:

  • How to choose incentives that attract relocating employees
  • How Canada has become the second-most preferred country for mobile workers
  • Why salary is no longer the main relocation driver
  • Why the U.S. has dipped in the desirability rankings for relocation
  • Why government policies matter to mobile workers
