Worldwide Survey of International Assignment Policies and Practices

Buy Now!

An Informed Perspective

With the largest participant base in the market – more than 1000 multinational companies – the comprehensive and global Worldwide Survey of International Assignment Policies and Practices (WIAPP) survey addresses the most critical policy and practice elements of international assignments and answers prevalent questions in this dynamic field:

  • What are the latest trends in global mobility?
  • How important are mobility premiums in the current economy?
  • Policy segmentation is reported as a trend in the prior survey, but what have companies really implemented?
  • Are companies moving toward a free housing policy, and how does that approach impact other assignment benefits?
  • What elements of your expatriate program administration should be managed in-house or outsourced? Is centralized or decentralized management of the international assignment program better for a company like yours?

The WIAPP also facilitates a review with Mercer's Policy Benchmarking service. We can assess your mobility program using precise benchmarking tools and report on gaps in your program that could be costing you money or valuable competitive advantage. For more information, please contact us or speak to your mobility consultant.
