What does “Strategic” mean when managing mobile talent?

Productivity and ROI of Business Travel   

Customer service and C X

 ‘Employer Branding’  impacts mobility via C X

 OK, what’s an EMPLOYER BRAND?  

Simply, employer brand is your firm’s reputation as a place to work. It’s not about the company’s PR campaign and the ad placements you see across social media, on TV and publications. It’s about how employees in-office and on-assignment communicate company values, culture. 

Example: an employee on business travel, an employee and family on a project (domestic or global)…  are they a “good person” to represent the org?   Benefits/Coaching/Mentoring designed to enhance the employee’s success on assignment?  It’s also about how company customers think about the company. 

Does it really matter? You can bet on it.
