Virtual Assignments

AIRINC’s recent pulse survey on virtual assignments finds that this emerging type of mobility is top of mind for mobility professionals. Virtual assignments are defined as an arrangement in which the employee lives in one country but performs their job remotely in another country. While virtual assignments are being considered by almost half of companies (40%), this type of mobility is still evolving for most, with only 3% of companies having a formal policy. Companies express that while virtual assignments could become a new option in their suite of mobility policies, they won’t necessarily replace existing assignment types.
