Digital technology and global mobility: Narrative review and directions for future research

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesResearchpeer-review


Digital technology (DT) is increasingly used in the modern workplace, including in global mobility managementDT is transforming – or has the potential to transform – nearly all aspects of assignment management and global mobility more broadly. In this paper we review research published between 2000 and 2022 that examines how DT is used by those undertaking and those managing global mobility. Our systematic narrative review suggests that research to date is fragmented, mostly anecdotal, and often lacks a clear theoretical base. Rather than view this as an insurmountable challenge, we believe that it presents an opportunity for developing a vibrant research agenda, and we offer suggestions that we hope will encourage more scholars to examine this topic in the future.
