Global sourcing and relocation assistance could be found in recruiters' master lists far in 2009. Now, job relocation is not an emerging trend anymore. In 2017, 258 million people were already living outside the countries of their origin (that’s about 3,5% of the world’s population). And, as the Legatum Institute states, approximately 10% of this group were refugees or asylum seekers. The other migrants had various reasons to move, such as personal or job-related issues.
A recent survey, conducted by Relocate.me, showed that the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, the UK, and Switzerland are among the most frequent work migrants' destinations. Among the other popular job relocation directions are Sweden, the United States, and Australia. Obviously, the relocating professionals now have a very much of choice.
