38 Mobility | June 2016 THE NUMBERS 2016 EMEA PEER2PEER BENCHMARKING POLL Forty-four delegates responsible for managing or administering their organizations' mobility programs partic- ipated in a special poll during Worldwide ERC ® 's Peer2Peer Benchmarking session at the London Summit in February 2016. They explored approaches that might be taken for longer-term assignments in developed and emerging countries in Europe 10 years from now. The poll also asked about the impact of the migration crisis in Europe and pressure to control costs. For mobility into developed European locations, respondents predicted that in 10 years, the industry will be seeing a greater number of permanent moves on local packages. In addition, they also predicted increases in assignments with hybrid compensation schemes in which the assignee will be on home-country terms and conditions, but receive host-country compensation and benefits schemes. Respondents predict that develop - ing or emerging countries are also likely to see these hybrid assignments, but will see few permanent moves. Respondents also reported continued (48 percent) or increasing (43 percent) pressure to reduce the costs of mobility in Europe. Nearly half report a minimal impact from the migration crisis. The results of all the polling questions are provided below. © 2016 by Worldwide ERC ® . All rights reserved. FOR LONGER-TERM DEPLOYMENTS TO DEVELOPED COUNTRIES IN EUROPE, WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING DO YOU THINK WILL BE CLOSEST TO THE MOST POPULAR APPROACH IN 10 YEARS?
