Global Assignment Policies and Practices Survey 

This web-based survey, 15 years after its launch, continues to provide valuable trends and insight on how global organizations administer their international human resource (HR) programs.

KPMG’s GAPP Survey provides a wealth of information for those responsible for or interested in global mobility. The detailed data is an opportunity to compare or contrast current practices to an organization's peers or against other types of organizations. Further, it allows for critical learning on best practices and new ways of thinking.


This year, over 600 organizations responded to the survey and results show that global mobility programs continue to be highly leveraged. Notably, the survey finds that organizations headquartered in the Nordic and Asia Pacific regions are using international assignments more than ever. And, in organizations where global mobility is common practice, they continue to expand and adapt their programs to meet ever changing business and people needs.
