One of the most common factors the management team here at Gerson Relocation find in evidence when deploying our global mobility expertise in London and across the world is that of monitoring the full service and accompanying costs.
So it came as a something of a surprise to see – according to this report – that half of employers are not fully tracking the costs of their global mobility projects and international assignments.
When it comes to tracking the costs of global mobility assignments, this is a big area: containing costs whilst still delivering the right level of service is a key consideration. We understand this.
The battle between understanding costs and the delivery of services remains the key motivating factor in successful global mobility assignments, and communication between the procurement and mobility departments needs to be crystal clear to ensure proactive and positive projects here.
One of the first questions our global mobility team ask of a client is whether the budget allocated is appropriate. This might seem like a basic starting point, but it sometimes gives interesting replies.
The report highlights that appropriate costings for global mobility is not always prioritised in the way it demands for effective business relocation and commercial relocation purposes to seamlessly fit.
We know from over five decades of company relocation services experience that tracking and monitoring costs remains one of the most important elements in terms of global mobility today.
