International mobility managers’ duties

International mobility managers are responsible for setting and deploying policy and procedures for international staff transfers, from mobility strategy to employees’ return from assignment. They monitor the international mobility cycle and are a point of contact for teams responsible for the different stages of:
• International mobility policy (design, review and update)
• Compensation for international transfers (e.g. transforming gross pay in France into gross pay in Brazil) social protection of employees on international assignments;
• Taxation of employees on international assignments;
• Secondment, expatriation or local contracts;
• Immigration procedures
• Career management for international staff

International mobility is a specificfield within human resources. It is a demanding occupation which requires professionalism, technical skills, an open mind and adaptability.
Professionals in the fi eld face a specifi c environment due to international employment contracts, immigration, and varying regulations. They must be familiar with techniques for international compensation, social protection, and taxation. They must also deploy international personnel management practices, including on career management, returns, family-related issues, and cross-cultural issues. Lastly, they must adapt to the vagaries of the international environment in the fields of safety and security, in terms of both prevention and crisis management. International mobility often concerns high-ranking posts, and as such is by nature strategic.
With transfers increasingly being made in all directions, many groups are choosing to set up shared services centers, from which experts assist subsidiaries and expatriates. International mobility plays an important role in companies’ growth in regional and international markets. 

As such, companies need operational staff . This highlevel, specialized program prepares participants to meet this demand.
