Road signs: Expectations pointing left, Reality pointing right

As seasoned global mobility SMEs and professionals, we are passionate about offering our expertise to all RMCs, global mobility teams, HR professionals and Payroll professionals in order to facilitate seamless, intentional and positive assignments. Witnessing employees embark on exciting adventures that broaden their horizons and propel their careers is incredibly rewarding; But, let’s be honest, the glossy brochures and idealized portrayals don’t always paint the full picture. The gap between idealized expectations and the realities of global mobility can be significant, leading to frustration and stress for both employees and the global mobility team.

At Ineo, we understand the common misconceptions employees may have about their international assignments, business travel, remote working scenario, and more. Visions of glamorous adventures, automatic career boosts and financial benefits can cloud the realities of cultural adjustments, complex logistics, and navigating foreign bureaucracies. Read along to understand how Ineo’s global mobility software, services and tools can help bring a sense of positive realism back to your program.

Global Mobility and its Challenges

Tax Implications: Navigating tax regulations in both the home and host countries can be a minefield, adding another layer of stress for employees.

Logistical Hurdles: Visas, relocation processes, cultural and language barriers – the paperwork alone can be a daunting task.

Cost-of-Living Adjustments: While most companies offer compensation adjustments, accurately reflecting the cost-of-living difference in a new location can be complex.

Fear not, this doesn’t have to be a solitary struggle. The good news? Ineo’s team are here to support you every step of the way. Our goal is to bridge the gap between expectations and a successful global mobility experience and to be a reliable partner through your global mobility voyage.
