Next Gen GM is in London on September 26, a special Global Mobility event to explore the importance of providing support to assignees and their families.

In partnership with InterNations Business Solutions and EMG School Placement, the upcoming event will explore how the relocation experience impacts an employee at work and how it effects their mental well-being and their families, too.

With ground-breaking research studies and an expert panel, attendees will be provided insights into how small adjustments can improve the relocation experience monumentally with minimal costs.

Next Gen GM’s Global Mobility event will take place on Thursday, September 26 from 18:30 to 22:00 (BST) at KPMG.

Next Gen GM is a unique networking group who wish to aid its members in developing their Global Mobility knowledge and enhancing

their standing within their respective company. 

Global Mobility is a fast-paced industry that is evolving to meet the demands of worldwide businesses that are ever-changing in order to meet consumer’s demand. Global Mobility professionals are essential to the success of the Global Mobility Function and play an important role in adapting and changing the shape of the global mobility world for the next generation. However, these professionals can sometimes be overlooked in their personal and professional development within the industry.  

The September 26 event will run as a panel discussion covering many topics within the global mobility industry.

One panelist Ksenija Popac will dive into the importance of finding the right school for employees who are relocating with school children. Popac will also be sharing her insights into why successful education relocation for children is a critical factor in employee retention. 

As global mobility professionals begin to focus more on the employee experience in an environment where budgets are decreasing, this panel of experts will discuss why support is critical for employees’ well-being and how small monetary investments can make a huge positive impact. 

Other topics will include: dealing with challenges employees and their families face when moving to a new location, the most challenging aspect of an international relocation that impacts employee wellbeing, the importance of focusing on finding the right school when relocating and upon repatriation, research evidence of the 2019 expat survey conducted by InterNations.
