Flexible solutions continue to grab attention in the field of talent mobility and corporate relocation as a way to meet several business objectives simultaneously, including greater cost efficiency, improved user experience, and more diverse talent. According to proprietary industry research produced in conjunction with Worldwide ERC®, more than 70% of organizations are now using flexible mobility policies as part of their relocation programs. COVID-19 appears to have been a significant factor for more organizations to adopt this approach, with Worldwide ERC industry research also indicating there are up to 25% more permanent transfer policies including flexible benefits today, when compared to pre-pandemic levels.
Cartus has been supporting organizations with flexible mobility since this policy-type was first introduced more than a decade ago. In collaboration with its supplier partners, Cartus designs and delivers a number of these policy-types, including tiered, lump sum, and core/flex programs, ensuring each one aligns with a company’s unique set of business priorities and challenges.
“Cartus has more than a decade of experience helping clients develop and implement flexible mobility policies, including offering automated or technology-based solutions, like our game-changing Benefits Builder platform. Cartus’ 2022 strategic focus on flexible mobility reconfirms to our clients and the wider relocation industry that we know exactly what organizations and their relocating families want and need when it comes to delivering the most rewarding relocation experience possible.” – David Pascoe, Executive SVP, EMEA & APAC, Global Talent Mobility, Cartus

“Forevermore, we will have a points-based policy, which was one of the things that came out of the pandemic, because it highlighted that everybody [has] unique concerns and situations that they are dealing with. I think one of the things we have learned is how much flexibility is required and needed for our [mobility] program.” —Marisa Johnson, Sr. Manager, Global Services, Textron, Inc.
“Without Benefits Builder, it really would not have been possible for us to roll out our international permanent transfer points-based policy. It would be too administratively cumbersome. The feedback thus far has been positive from the employee experience perspective.” —Trish Macdonald, Director, Global Mobility, Westinghouse Electric Company
