Core/Flex Educational Series: The Technology Advantage 07.12.2023 | Jennifer Connell

Today’s mobile employees want more flexibility and control, but need support to manage the new complexities of global relocation. Companies want mobility programs that are cost-effective, streamlined, and easy to administer, but magnetic enough to attract and retain top talent. Agility is in high demand and core/flex mobility policies are being touted as the hero; flexible enough to bend to the needs of your employees, but structured enough to initiate and manage easily.

Despite all the buzz around flexible mobility and the core/flex model, currently, only about 35% of companies report offering some form of choice in their programs. But our clients and prospects alike 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 your employee and business goals.
