Cartus Declares the Future of Mobility is HERE, and it’s Flexible!

Long-time relocation industry leader announces strategic focus on designing and delivering flexible mobility programs to support current demographic trends among clients and their relocating employees.

DANBURY, CONN. (MARCH 30, 2022) – Cartus Corporation, a Realogy (NYSE:RLGY) company and the leader in global talent mobility, is excited to announce its strategic focus on flexible mobility using a rigorous three-pronged approach involving:

  1. Industry-exclusive benchmarking and thought leadership
  2. Cutting-edge technology solutions
  3. World-class mobility experts

Flexible solutions continue to grab attention in the field of talent mobility and corporate relocation as a way to meet several business objectives simultaneously, including greater cost efficiency, improved user experience, and more diverse talent. According to proprietary industry research produced in conjunction with Worldwide ERC®, more than 70% of organizations are now using flexible mobility policies as part of their relocation programs. COVID-19 appears to have been a significant factor for more organizations to adopt this approach, with Worldwide ERC industry research also indicating there are up to 25% more permanent transfer policies including flexible benefits today, when compared to pre-pandemic levels.

Cartus has been supporting organizations with flexible mobility since this policy-type was first introduced more than a decade ago. In collaboration with its supplier partners, Cartus designs and delivers a number of these policy-types, including tiered, lump sum, and core/flex programs, ensuring each one aligns with a company’s unique set of business priorities and challenges.

Thought Leadership to Guide Policy Transformation

Once mobility leaders have ascertained why they want to adopt a flexible mobility approach, they must then decide how to adapt their current relocation policies. A poorly devised, implemented, or managed mobility program can create more problems than it solves. To help organizations considering a policy re-design, Cartus’ Flexible Mobility white paper series provides real-life case studies and an in-depth blueprint about this policy-type:

“Forevermore, we will have a points-based policy, which was one of the things that came out of the pandemic, because it highlighted that everybody [has] unique concerns and situations that they are dealing with. I think one of the things we have learned is how much flexibility is required and needed for our [mobility] program.”

Marisa Johnson, Sr. Manager, Global Services, Textron, Inc. 

“Without Benefits Builder, it really would not have been possible for us to roll out our international permanent transfer points-based policy. It would be too administratively cumbersome. The feedback thus far has been positive from the employee experience perspective.”

Trish Macdonald, Director, Global Mobility, Westinghouse Electric Company
