High inflation is affecting us all.
As a mobility specialist, you get all sorts of questions from assignees before starting an assignment.
In today’s mobility climate, retaining talent and fostering a positive employee experience is important, but even more so in developmental assignments.....
No one wants to double count unless it is in their favor. Global Mobility faces this challenge as well. In offering the best service to assignees, companies may be paying the same benefit twice without even knowing it.
More than ever, it is important to keep your assignees happy. They have all been affected by COVID-19: some had to quarantine, while others were not able to visit family in their home country due to travel restrictions.
Global Mobility is often challenged by local HR about the housing budgets in a given location. What do you do in this case? Do you consider HR’s input and potentially adjust the housing budgets accordingly, or do you maintain the housing budgets based on the data from your provider?
We are living in a challenging environment. Many companies are taking the opportunity to review their mobility policies to ensure their provisions are still aligned with market practice and/or are looking to reduce costs.
In these challenging times, companies are being faced with exceptional circumstances. One of these exceptional circumstances is when the assignee is packed to go on assignment but the assignment is cancelled last minute. Companies will typically pay for the costs directly linked to the relocation, such as shipment and medical expenses, but what about incidental costs?
