Ian Cloake: Rewarding globally mobile employees

Ian Cloke, vice president of global reward at Unilever, chats to Debbie Lovewell, deputy editor at Employee Benefits, about the key issues to consider when rewarding globally mobile employees.

He explains that consistency is important because employees will talk to each other. Global mobility managers also need to be transparent and open, as well as simplify things as much as possible.

There is also the danger of thinking short-term, that is: only as long the assignment lasts, without considering what next from the outset.
