The world of work, how we work and where we work, has been permanently transformed by the COVID pandemic. These realities create significant challenges for organizations in managing the workforce in this new world of work.
Remote working and work from anywhere arrangements require far different management systems than those of the past.

Modernization and harmonization of laws and regulations that provide business with predictable outcomes and provide fairness and security to employees are needed.
A declaration to support the development of a global mobility framework that will expedite the movement of skilled workers between countries and regions.
