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:

  • How are mobile workforces changing?
  • What are the trends in administering mobility programs?
  • What policy segmentation have companies implemented? What are the policy differentiators? Do companies have more than one long-term assignment policies?
  • How important are certain incentives in the current economy?
  • What factors cause an assignment to fail?
  • How flexible are employers to accommodate an increasingly diverse assignee profile population?

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.
