Leading with Purpose: Building Your Mobility Strategy

When planned and implemented mindfully, the return on your workforce mobility investment will have long-term positive impacts – financially, logistically, and on your company’s mobility brand. In this session, we’ll discuss how to forecast and right-size your internal mobility team, along with best practices you can consider to maximize their efforts and develop a strategic mobility program that’s aligned with organizational goals.

Real Stories, Real Data

Companies can gain a significant advantage when they leverage data to strategically assess the past, present, and future performance of their mobility program. This workshop will explore how you can use your organization’s historical data to examine and analyze your mobility program in its present state – from selecting the right data to understanding the output – and apply forecasting and predictive analytics to translate that data into actionable solutions, so you can make better-informed, impactful decisions in the future.

Attract & Retain Talent

Mobility Process Mapping: Determine the right support for the right candidates at the right time

In this session, we’ll explore one company’s journey to determine which key talent and business drivers needed to be considered when determining and providing appropriate relocation support types and levels. Attendees will be challenged to think beyond basic qualifiers when considering the holistic impact of a mobility opportunity, when considering their own applications of this scenario.

Facilitated Breakout Sessions

Participate alongside your peers in multiple breakout sessions led by industry-expert facilitators.

Controlling mobility costs is a top priority for businesses but, when it comes to mobility, cost control can only be obtained when companies first know their true mobility spend.

In this session, we’ll discuss how to identify the hard and soft costs associated with mobility and the best practices for tracking and managing them. This is easier said than done, since so many of the costs associated with mobility are soft costs: administrative and out-of-purview expenses that aren’t typically factored into the mix – but should be.

What happens when ‘up front’ savings result in the need for downstream troubleshooting? How can building flexibility into your program ensure that the right coverage is offered to each mobile employee and limit exceptions? How can task duplication be avoided to maximize efficiency? We’ll answer these questions, plus cover the importance of ‘doing it right’ from the beginning to maximizing your return on mobility.

Supply chain challenges have persisted in mobility, but is there anything we can do to mitigate them? How can we manage mobile employee expectations during this challenging time – let alone company leadership? Can we expect to see an improvement in household goods shipment timelines anytime soon? What’s driving prices up and how can we stay on top of understanding these changes? How can we manage the global housing squeeze?

Be sure to attend this Q&A session, where leading supplier partners will provide insight, tips, and answers to your toughest questions.

Benchmarking can be used for much more than benefit comparisons – but how can you take your findings and activities to the next level?

In this session, we’ll explore how to consider benefit benchmarks and tailor outcomes or your business that will be industry-competitive, while aligned with your organizational goals and initiatives. We’ll also take a look at the benefits of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) benchmarking and how to maintain a consistent and reliable approach to benchmarking as a whole, despite ever-evolving global events and corporate initiatives.

The pandemic and its challenges have been unprecedented but, following any crisis, there’s always an opportunity to evaluate what we’ve learned. What did the past three years reveal about your crisis management plan? What went well and where was there room for improvement?

In this session, we’ll discuss best practices surrounding crisis management and how to leverage lessons learned during the pandemic to strengthen your crisis management plan for the future.
