Recruiters Will Need to Find Quick Solutions for Relocation of Talents

Suspend for a second whatever reservations you have about artificial intelligence, and the supposed threat it holds over your (and your colleagues’) jobs. Recent tech developments show that it can indeed be a vital tool in your daily task of managing the global business landscape that is your domain.

These innovations go beyond simply providing information (which is what Alexa does), or analyzing that data to make it more relevant and useful for your work (which is what makes analytics very valuable).

The new platforms in mobility management can actually help global mobility managers execute cumbersome but needed tasks, as well as assisting them in strategizing their new recruitment plan or the creation of a fresh assignee pipeline.

A report by HR Technologist shows the new frontier of HR technology as far as global mobility is concerned:  providing quick solutions for the relocation of assignees, which helps the global mobility manager expedite these matters while devoting his attention and focus on more critical issues. The tech in question: mobility management tools.

Accountants and finance officers will like the way that mobility management tools can revolutionize the process of global relocation. One software can actually plot out the entire costs of one assignee’s transfer — and then compare it with another who lives in another country and will also move to the same country of employment.

The cost of hiring and relocating an assignee — and making sure it does not escalate — is one of the perennial concerns of companies that employ them. As points out, one difficulty is that the situation and its related expenses are changing and subject to the changes happening in the country of employment.

Economic progress or deterioration can impact the assignee’s salary and lifestyle. The mobility management tool can track down all these factors that affect relocation on real-time and give a cyber heads-up to the global mobility management if there is  a red flag they should address or a positive development they should take advantage of. In either case, the objective is the same: minimize the cost of relocation.

The second way that mobility management tools makes the global mobility manager’s job easier is putting order and organization in the entire process of relocation. Ever single phase of the process — from the assignee’s signing the dotted line, securing a visa, securing a visa for their spouse, finding a suitable accommodation, to choosing the right school for the kids — can be monitored under one network.

A checklist and a notification of each phase’s deadline can ensure that not any of those hundred details can fall into the cracks. One bonus of this function is that the mobility management tool can create a database of helpful allies that the global mobility manager can always turn to, such as embassies, industry associations, and housing corporations like California Corporate Housing.

With mobility management tools like these, a global mobility manager can always stay on top of the relocation process, spotting and addressing potential challenges, and ensuring that their assignee has a smooth transition. This particular technology is not only a timesaver and a cost cutter, but also a virtual assistant to a strategic planner.
