It’s 2024 and core/flex is still trending strong in mobility circles. And we’re not surprised.
After all, today’s mobile employees still want more flexibility and control, but they desperately need support to manage the new complexities of global relocation. Amid lingering recession fears, employers need mobility programs that are cost-effective, streamlined, and easy to administer, but magnetic enough to attract — and most critically, retain — top talent. Agility is in high demand and core/flex mobility policies are touted as the hero; flexible enough to bend to the needs of employees but structured enough to easily initiate and manage.
Despite all the hype around flexible mobility and the core/flex model, the vast majority of companies report that they don’t yet offer any form of choice in their programs. Why? They still have many questions about the core/flex framework and how to make it work for them. This points to a greater need to take the mystery out of flexible mobility and to demonstrate how these models can be adapted to meet employee and business goals.
We’ve gathered a few of our finest in-house mobility experts to develop a quick and easily consumable way for our clients and internal teams to learn the key components, best practices, and common applications of this trending policy type. We are pleased to share our Core/Flex Educational Video Series!
Missed the first three lessons in core/flex? Here’s a recap:
Episode 1: Core/Flex Programs and How They Work with Laura Levenson, Advisory Practice Leader
Episode 2: Does Technology Support Core/Flex Programs with Shawn Sweeney, Vice President of Technology Solutions
Episode 3: Core/Flex Programs and the Employee Experience with Chuck Langley, Client Service Director
In the fourth (and final) episode in this educational series, these three mobility masters join forces to share real life client cases demonstrating their core/flex program recommendations in practice.
While one-size-fits-all approaches are notoriously flawed when it comes to talent management, the great thing about core/flex programs is that they really can bend to support a diverse employee demographic and a wide breadth of client needs – so whether you’re moving a new hire, c-suite executive, single parent, or a couple with accompanying elderly parents, everyone can get what they need to make their relocation seamless and their transition successful.
As the battle for talent rages on, curating great experiences should be a focus for global companies looking to retain and attract top employees, and build a robust pipeline of future talent. Core/flex programs can help you reach those objectives (and more)!
