Following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), inward investment organisations from around the continent are competing to attract international businesses to their region or country. Germany, France, Ireland and the Netherlands are among the countries competing for a piece of the post-Brexit action. However, with new trade agreements in the pipeline, the UK continues to draw foreign direct investment (FDI) from around the world.

Despite the pervading influence of the EU, Europe is a diverse continent. Individual destinations bring their own challenges for those managing talent mobility or setting up a business or branch office there.

This section includes articles, tools and resources, plus the latest news, to help you achieve your business objectives. With input from specialists across global mobility and the relocation industry and the latest perspectives from regional conferences, we analyse key trends influencing Europe’s relocation and global mobility scene, including the impact of Brexit, demographic and economic shifts, and compliance issues.

We cover the latest trends in inbound, outbound and domestic relocation, looking at everything from key relocation destinations and industry sectors to immigration, talent management and commercial property, as well as the full range of employee and family support topics, including education and international schools, residential property and serviced apartments.

There’s plenty of practical advice and information for HR and global managers responsible for international assignments, whether long term, short term, rotational, developmental or project led, plus support for those setting up a business or a company office in Europe.
