Expatriate Trends Study 2015: Employee Expectations Re-Examined
Once again, Cigna Global Health Benefits and the National Foreign Trade Council co-sponsored a survey of employees on global assignments. This year, the study garnered 2,704 respondents – a striking 79% increase over the 2013 study – from 156 assignment countries. The findings provide a better understanding of what globally mobile employees and their families experience, perceive and value regarding assignment terms and programs. While many surveys tell the global mobility story from the perspective of the employer, this survey is unique in that it gathers candid feedback from the globally mobile themselves—information employers are rarely able to gather on their own.
