Mobility professionals can tap Graebel’s expertise, collaboration and hands-on tools to elevate their role and programmes

Denver, Colo. (June 3, 2019) – Graebel Companies, Inc., a leading provider of talent and workplace mobility solutions, today expanded its consulting service that helps Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies imagine and introduce a tailored mobility strategy designed entirely around their business needs.

Graebel’s Mobility Strategy service responds to the needs of global mobility professionals who want to elevate their roles and programmes. In fact, Graebel Global Mobility Summit research found mobility professionals today spend 80 percent of their time on reactive tasks such as managing administration and transactional or service issues*. However, they want to do more of the opposite – to spend 86 percent of their time on proactive work such as setting goals, measuring return on investment and enhancing relationships*.

That is why Graebel expanded its Mobility Strategy service, to deliver an even more comprehensive suite of practical tools and collaborative practices, along with its proven expertise, to help mobility professionals demonstrate the full value of their programme with a direct connection to their company’s business goals.

“We are pleased to expand our Mobility Strategy service, which will help mobility professionals go beyond benchmarking and realise their goals of being more strategic and proactive,” says Tim O’Shea, vice president, mobility strategy at Graebel and leader of this service area. “Our Mobility Strategy tools, powered by feedback you can trust and expertise you can rely on, provide a unique experience that will transform companies’ mobility programmes into a business advantage.”

As part of the service, Graebel consultants use hands-on strategic mapping tools to help mobility professionals get tangible information that can be shared with other key stakeholders and business leaders. The proprietary Graebel tools include:

  • Graebel Mobility PathBuilder®: The programme has three steps – Mobility Strategy, Return on Mobility and Stakeholder Engagement – each of which build upon and complement each other. Graebel experts facilitate work sessions and guide mobility professionals through the programme’s step-by-step roadmap, including defining the larger mobility story and the programme’s business impact, and engaging key stakeholders to create ambassadors who can help influence programme outcomes.
  • Graebel Mobility Quotient Insight®: This diagnostic tool measures stakeholder feedback across a broad set of functions and activities to uncover gaps, identify strengths and provide a clear, 360-degree view of a company’s mobility programme performance. This allows Graebel to pinpoint how mobility professionals can use resources more efficiently and better align with larger business goals.

In addition, the Graebel Mobility Strategy team has decades of experience on both the provider and client side and can further guide a company’s mobility strategy by aligning best practices and industry trends with business needs and goals to:

  • Create and review mobility programme policies
  • Offer change management planning
  • Guide internal communications and planning
  • Facilitate Voice of Customer focus groups and targeted surveys
