Are you looking to create efficiencies in key areas of your value chain?
Pushing to achieve maximum strategic financial value from your core competencies is not a new challenge for most companies. Choosing to partner with relocation providers as a method of accomplishing this strategy continues to evolve, notably in the management and administration of global and domestic mobility programmes. The following will outline, at a high level, the best practices developed for preparing to outsource global mobility administration.
Looking for the benefits of utilising global and domestic mobility not only in terms of potential cost saving, but also the impact on the success of achieving your greater strategic mobility goals, for example, effectively allocating and developing key employees. Comprehensive mobility knowledge and expertise is not something that can be developed in-house, or quickly.

Your employee’s entire life is uprooted, usually for a new and more demanding job. Their family may be pleased, or there may be pandemonium. 14 year old daughter may be categorically refusing to leave,12 year old son is an up and coming hockey star; what about his dreams of playing in the NHL? And his mother is in assisted living; what about her? The employee’s spouse has her own company and is just starting to do well with it. She is not at all pleased at the prospect of moving anywhere, let alone to another country.
