Recently I attended the Forum for Expat Management 2015 NYC Roadshow. What an exciting buzz with many people in attendance from both the corporate and supplier side of global mobility! Everywhere I looked people were gathered together either at a roundtable event, a session, a supplier booth, or just in groups chatting about global mobility. One of my favorite panel sessions was “Repatriation, Localization, or Redeployment – Exploring the Best Succession Plans to Retain Top Talent.” The panel, moderated by Brian Friedman, Founder, FEM included Tricia Schneider, Director of Global Mobility, American Express; Melissa Sudano, Director of Global Mobility, CA Technologies; and Patricia Tavares, Global Mobility Regional Head – Americas, HSBC. Their combined expertise left me with several lessons but, today, I wanted to share some thoughts on repatriation and retention specifically.
