Mobility leaders tend to like the lump sum approach for certain relocation situations because it’s easier to administer than a managed move. Plus, some employees appreciate the empowerment and flexibility it gives them. But Mobility managers still need to oversee the funds and verify certain expenditures. And is it really a good idea to completely leave an employee on their own as they navigate things unfamiliar with while getting from Point A to Point B?
Fortunately, there’s a way to combine the quality assurance that comes with a managed move with the administrative ease of a lump sum arrangement.
We have customized solutions to administer:
- Standard Lump Sum programs where we manage and disburse the specific amount you’ve authorized
- Managed Lump Sum programs in which we ensure the funds are only disbursed for authorized services and activities
- Intern management programs
- Additional related services that you know will be important to the experience, like tax reporting support
Your administrative workload from managing lump sum relocations will fade to zero.
Even when your employee is relocating with a lump sum, self-managed move … it doesn’t mean they’re on their own.
