MORRIS PLAINS, NJ, January 25, 2017 – Weichert Workforce Mobility Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of global talent deployment solutions, announced today its collaboration with Going-there, Global Destination Services, to launch the Weichert Global Organizer. This new smart phone application helps corporations easily track mobile employees and business travelers to ensure compliance with strict immigration and tax laws.
The Weichert Global Organizer is extremely easy to use. Employees and business travelers simply enter their specific locations and the Weichert Global Organizer automatically begins tracking their time in each location, alerting the employee and HR of pending tax or immigration events such as visa renewal or days in a certain jurisdiction triggering tax liability. Data collected through the app is fed to a portal-based reporting system, giving HR managers accurate, real time access to the activities of all business travelers.
“With immigration and tax guidelines evolving more rapidly and enforcing entities pursuing violations with greater vigilance, companies that can’t accurately track the movement of their mobile workforce risk serious compliance issues, not to mention the heavy fines and business restrictions that come with them,” said Stewart McCardle, Senior Vice President of Assignment Management Services and Global Supply Chain Solutions with Weichert Workforce Mobility.
“The Weichert Global Organizer eliminates these compliance risks, automatically generating for companies a clear picture of the tax and immigration status of their employees and allowing them to be proactive, rather than reactive, to any concerns. Further, at tax time, all of the critical data that the employee and company need for filing and reporting is easily accessible in one place.”
Beyond immigration and tax compliance, the Weichert Global Organizer addresses another issue of critical importance to companies managing mobile workforces: duty of care. In the event of an emergency, the app empowers HR managers to instantly locate their employees at any point on the globe, alert them to danger and, if necessary, evacuate them to a place of safety.
“Immigration, tax and duty of care represent the three biggest challenges for managing mobile talent and business travelers,” said McCardle. “The Weichert Global Organizer is the only app of its kind to track and synergize the data surrounding these functions into actionable information for HR and corporate mobility managers.”
