2020 Global Assignment Policies and Practices Survey

Welcome to the Global Assignment Policies and Practices (GAPP) Survey

As a leading industry-recognized survey, the GAPP Survey continues to provide valuable trends and insights annually on how global organizations administer their international human resource (HR) programs. It allows you to benchmark your organization in relation to other participants on numerous aspects of an international assignment program; including: assignee selection and assessment, assignment preparation and planning, automation and robotics, talent and performance management, assignment compensation and allowances, administration and outsourcing, immigration compliance, the use of data and analytics, assignment management technology as well as tax reimbursement approaches.

Survey instructions

To prepare for the taking the survey, please note the following:

  • The survey should take approximately 1 hour to complete.
  • It would be helpful to have a copy of your organization’s long-term international assignment policy (or equivalent) available for quick reference.
  • Your responses will save automatically, and you can close and re-launch the survey if you are unable to complete the survey in one sitting; however, you must re-launch the survey from the same device in order to re-access your existing survey responses (as the survey platform references your device’s IP address).
  • Once you click the final "Submit" button, you will not be able to change your responses or re-access the survey. Please review and update your answers accordingly before submitting the survey in final.
