Global Assignment Policies and Practices Survey

You are invited to participate in the 2016 Global Assignment Policies and Practices Survey.


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

The GAPP Survey, now in its 18th year, continues to provide valuable trends and insights 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, talent and performance management, assignment compensation and allowances, administration and outsourcing, as well as tax reimbursement policies.

Survey instructions

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

  • The survey should take approximately one 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 relaunch the survey if you are unable to complete the survey in one sitting; however, you must relaunch 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.
  • It is necessary to complete the survey in order to view your results and receive a copy of KPMG's 2016 GAPP Survey results publication (when released in Fall 2016).
