    Examining the rise of cross-border, intra-company transfers

    The increasing use of cross-border, intra-company transfers to meet global staffing needs is presenting new challenges to compensation professionals. Comparing the pre- and post-transfer compensation offering is generally straightforward when the move is domestic, but can become complex when two different countries are involved.

    Global differences in pay levels, benefits, currencies, taxes, and living costs can make it difficult to assess whether a particular pay offer might be attractive to a candidate living and working in another country.

    Having a robust system to compare the value of pre- and post-transfer compensation can help an organization assess whether a particular transfer is feasible. The comparisons can also be used to form a clear picture of the actual economic impact of a transfer which can be used to refine a particular offer or enhance communication with the candidate.
