An international relocation strategy is part of every international company’s arsenal for attracting the best talent. But global HR executives often struggle to manage their global mobility programs, because doing so successfully is a bit like juggling perhaps one-too-many balls: one misstep, and they all come crashing down on your head. Coordinating so many puzzle pieces is hard work, not only for your assignees and their families, but for your company as well, while  efforts are continuously made to meet budget requirements, deliver ROI, and match the right talent to the needs of the locations.
