Siemens has possibly the largest mobility program in the world with (pre-COVID) over 300,000 moves and business trips each year. Yes, 300,000! The vast majority of the moves are short-term but they also have 23,000 work assignments and 2,000 longer term moves each year.
As you can imagine, Siemens has an extensive and highly experienced in-house team to manage such a vast program, with over 300 mobility professionals who look after every aspect of the Siemens population. They also handle a growing number of third party moves primarily for former Siemens subsidiaries.
In our recent The View From The Top Show, Brian Friedman discussed this mega program with Siemens representatives: Astrid Halfers, Head of Global Mobility - Regional Management, Andrea Ruiz, Global Mobility Regional Manager - Americas, and Meike Geiken, Head of Global Framework, Global Mobility Policies, Immigration and International Law.
