Relocation packages designed to support your long-term international assignment policies
The traditional long-term assignment (LTA) may not be the fastest growing area of employee Global Mobility, but it is still core to the majority of Global Mobility strategies today.
For some programmes we have also witnessed a revival in their popularity, as employers recognise the effectiveness of LTAs for influencing the success of business critical projects.
Thanks to innovations within policy design and international compensation approaches, employers are now able to send their key talent on a long-term assignment more cost effectively.
What is the definition of a long-term assignment?
A long-term assignment (LTA) is typically defined as an employee international assignment of more than 12 months, normally lasting up to 3 years.
Service coordination for cost efficiencies and cost containment
Look at any assignment cost estimate and the greatest cost areas within a long-term assignment, after the compensation package, are monthly housing costs, schooling and exceptions.
Our relocation packages and Programme Management approach ensures that we use our experience and systems to control these effectively. We identify the most cost-effective way to coordinate all the services within policy.
For example, our Relocation Managers will work with our local panel of real estate agents to ensure that rental allowances are relevant to the local market rate and to negotiate monthly rental costs and lease agreements to keep monthly payments as low as possible – but still get the right property for the needs of your relocating employee. To achieve this requires expertise, experience and local market connections.
By also ensuring that we manage exceptions effectively, we provide you with a highly effective relocation package.
