Cartus Unveils Insights from Inaugural Global Talent Mobility Survey 2024

A majority of HR and mobility professionals attribute increases in corporate relocation volume to lack of local talent

Cartus Corporation, an Anywhere Real Estate company and global leader in corporate relocation solutions, announces the release of its Global Talent Mobility Survey 2024. Subtitled “The great balancing act: optimizing the employee experience while controlling costs”, the report delves into key aspects of corporate mobility programs with international (cross-border) move volume, exploring critical areas such as talent management strategy; employee experience; flexible mobility; diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); and cost management.

The survey encapsulates perspectives from 138 respondents across diverse sectors like construction, consumer goods, education, energy/oil and gas, gaming, finance, insurance, pharma, manufacturing, recruitment, retail, tech, and service. Two thirds of respondents are from in-house global mobility/relocation functions, with an additional 20% from HR/people/talent-based roles.
