The Association for International Mobility (AIM), together with Manpower, Oxford Analytica and WISeKey will launch the Labour Mobility Index at the World Economic Forum at Davos

    Geneva (ots) -  Based in Geneva, AIM was established in cooperation with corporate and civil society partners to enable the private sector to act directly and effectively on the major economic, social and humanitarian challenges of human mobility.

    Manpower Inc. and WISeKey, two of AIM's founding partners, have played a lead role in the Labour Mobility Index to be launched at the 2009 World Economic Forum in Davos.

    The Labour Mobility Index will allow governments and private sector companies to monitor progress on labour mobility policy and practice via the Internet.  The Index will include an analysis of legislation, regulation, institutional behaviour, openness of markets to foreign workers, services provided to them and measures for their integration, permanent or temporary.

    Manpower has sponsored Oxford Analytica as designer of the methodology and evaluation processes required to prepare and publish the Labour Mobility Index.

    "The Labour Mobility Index will be a powerful tool in advancing AIM's vision of an open, efficient, fair and sustainable system of human mobility worldwide," said AIM Co-Chair Brunson McKinley.

    The Association for International Mobility (AIM) advocates on behalf of a more open and flexible international labour mobility; encourages commercially viable services to foreign workers and the communities they live in, especially through use of mobility technology; and serves as a point of reference and assistance for civil society groups working in the field of human mobility.

    "Manpower has long recognized this as an area that can be much improved in order to facilitate global mobility," said David Arkless, President of Global Corporate and Government Affairs, Manpower Inc. "Our partnership with AIM will allow us to bring to market unique ways of looking at this trend based on the strengths of our organizations."

    “WISeKey eSecurity technologies will enable AIM to activate the Labour Mobility Index over the Internet and monitor it securely from anywhere in the world” said Carlos Moreira, CEO, WISekey.

    In all its work, AIM seeks to reinforce the influence and capacity of other actors in international human mobility - individuals, businesses, civil society, organizations, governments and local authorities - and will emphasize the humanitarian dimension of international mobility.

    AIM operates as a non-profit association under by-laws approved by
the Swiss government.  Its members are corporations and associations
with strategic interests in human mobility as well as distinguished
international experts in the field.
