The problem addressed by the campaign:
mobility is essential to COM DEV’s business. Given the sensitive and
specialized nature of the satellite manufacturing industry, employees must
travel to carry out their job functions and collaborate directly with other
specialists and engineers.
- COM DEV
sent employees from different corners of the company to India to work on a
project. Upon arrival, the company treated employees very differently and
housed them in different types of accommodations. Mobility premiums had

- Employees sent on temporary
assignments to different company offices received inconsistent support,
accommodation and recognition.
Conclusions and Recommendations:
mobility premium guidelines simple if you are a smaller company (less than US$
250 million). Most peripheral issues can be handled case by case.
