“Global Mobility” is currently undergoing a global transformation. New technologies, the constant evolution of companies, generational diversity, and political situations have evolved the roles and lives of mobile professionals faster than existing policies can keep up, calling for a clear focus on the processes to be updated to cater better for the people we serve.

Are you, as a Global Mobility Professional, feeling overwhelmed by the speed and scope of this ‘boom’? Perhaps you need to introduce yourself to the field and get a better, broader overview of Global Mobility.

Maybe you are in HR or a line manager and want to ensure that you are becoming an employer of choice for younger generations demanding “Global Mobility” as a prerequisite for working with you.

Or, you are just on the brink of deciding for or against an international assignment as an expat or expat family and want better to understand the language we use.

How we will help you

Working with “The Global Mobility Workbook” and our learning support will enable you to

· run your Global Mobility in a more strategic way by deeper understanding of the trends and drivers of Global Mobility,

· develop and sort your legal framework, policies, guidelines, exception management,

· give you models for improving how you explain what we do to the outside world,

· support expats and their spouses and enhance their “Expat Experience” through training, coaching and deeper understanding of the psychological effects of cultural adjustment,

· develop your professional profile and “Global Competency”.

In order to make the expat experience worthwhile for their careers and the support for their families even better, it takes people who want more than ticking off a checklist.

It takes dedicated professionals and it needs personal communication with the entire expat family. We want to bring the human touch back into our process-driven work.

That is just the tip of what Global Mobility truly is, and “The Global Mobility Workbook” provides not only a baseline starting point to understanding the field but is a hands-on manual for people in HR, line managers, expats, and their spouses.

A pioneering book in its field, the Global Mobility Workbook remains as relevant as ever. Read it - and learn from one of our industry’s most prolific voices.


Eric Sieber

Mobility Thought Leader, Switzerland

This edition provides excellent strategic narrative, expanding the view of Global Mobility in the context of rapid change in the world of work.

This expanded definition is articulated in the changing nature of the workforce which is well anchored in themes such as Future of Work, Organizational Purpose, Employer Brand and Employee Experience.

Angie states a view, challenges established thinking, and puts forward the case for Mobility as a strategic enabler of the People Agenda in a way which provokes reflection. In the context of the changing role of HR, she very much makes the case for the Mobility function to position itself as a true partner to the business, developing internal consulting, business insight and change capabilities, and a facilitator of outstanding expat experience.

At the same time, we are reminded of well established principles and processes whilst she also brings forward broader talent objectives such as developing cultural competence in leaders, creating high performing teams and exercising duty of care and wellbeing.

The revised edition of the Global Mobility Workbook provides Global Mobility and HR experts very pragmatic insights about how to best manage a mobile workforce in a constantly changing environment, with a new generation of employees emerging into today’s world of business. The author, Angela Weinberger, is a very experienced Global Mobility expert. She is sharing her expertise, which she gained from a corporate and consulting perspective, with this workbook that includes a lot of very useful hints and tips. Personally, I experienced Angela in several Global Mobility round table discussions organised by Crown World Mobility in Switzerland where she contributed with her views and expertise. I strongly recommend this book as a “must read” to all existing and future Global Mobility Experts.
