In a recent survey from BGRS, the third most challenging factor for the Globally Mobility industry in managing Assignments, after compliance and cost containment, was “Assignee and Family Adjustment”.
I can understand why! For employees travelling to new locations, there are often steep learning curves and vast adjustments, the impact on the family can play a big part in this too. In fact, in the same BGRS survey, 27% of those asked said there were increasing numbers of married and partnered employees choosing ‘single-status’ for long term assignments. Perhaps this is because they know how tricky it can be to uproot family.
