Our recent webinar on cost optimization was widely attended and many folks wrote in requesting that we share the presentation, so we decided to provide this summary blog.
With 97% of global mobility spend on taxes and direct costs of assignment such as short and long term housing, shipment of household goods and travel and only 2-6% of spend attributable to a combination of internal administration and third party service fees, it’s no wonder that companies look to reducing policy benefits as the swiftest and obvious path to cost savings. We know however that severely cutting back or setting caps can impact ability to recruit, hire and retain the right talent for the assignment.
So it really makes good sense to stop and ask some important questions: Continue Reading →
It’s a question we hear time and time again: “How can we expand our globally mobile workforce and assignment program when we’re on a strict mandate to control costs?” The answer is global mobility cost optimization, and in this eye-opening, two-part webinar series, you’ll learn the strategies employed by mobility managers at some of the world’s leading companies to reduce spend while making talent mobility more effective.
In each of these one-hour sessions, our panel of experts will offer strategic and tactical tips for reducing program cost, innovative methods for balancing and weighing priorities, and the latest best practices in program design, managing exceptions and tax planning.
Sharing their stories with us for Part One will be Elisabeth Hauss, Global Mobility Program Manager at Bridgestone, and Linda Straw, Global Mobility Vendor & Relocation Manager at The Coca-Cola Company. Laura Levenson, Global Practice Leader of Weichert’s Consulting Services group, will lead the discussion.
Many HR professionals still manage workforce mobility as a purely tactical process, moving talent between points without considering each assignment’s long-term impact on their employees or their companies’ vision. But that’s a shortsighted approach, because workforce mobility can help organizations move the needle on their overarching talent management goals.
Our latest webinar saw Ellie Sullivan, SVP of Weichert Workforce Mobility’s Advisory Services team up with Mark Frederick, PhD, Director, Global Talent Management with IOR, to examine techniques to effectively align mobility with your talent strategy and provide insight into tools and “better practices” to improve the selection, development and retention of key talent.
During the program, they discuss case studies and personal experiences that will help you make meaningful program improvements, boost ROI and gain greater employee engagement. You can access the recording here.
Last week, we presented a webinar on Intra-Country Mobility Trends, which focused on domestically mobile workforces outside the US, UK and Canada. Although this talent segment is not often featured in industry surveys and white papers, the high level of interest in this webinar from mobility professionals across the world indicates that it is critical to a growing number of companies.
We were thrilled to tackle this subject with in-country service providers from China and India and corporate professionals from Whirlpool and Bombardier sharing their wisdom, experience and best practice recommendations with our audience.
Here are 5 key takeaways from our speakers:
• When developing a global mobility program, including intra-country mobility, be sure to secure executive sponsorship to ensure consistent roll-out and implementation worldwide. Whirlpool had the sponsorship of the CEO, while Bombardier had the support of the VPs of HR from its Aero and Transport divisions. Continue Reading →

In 2020, millennials–those born between 1980 and 2000–will represent 50% of the workforce. In 2025, they’ll represent a staggering 75%.
So it’s not surprising that our most recent educational webinar, Moving Millennials: Best Practices for Deploying Your Company’s Future Leaders, proved a popular session, attracting approximately 160 corporate workforce mobility professionals.
Underscoring the importance of this topic, attendees had a number of questions for our presenters at the conclusion of the program, and we received a record number of requests for the program slide deck. For those who may have missed it, you can access a recording of the webinar here.
