STUDY OVERVIEW

Although the global economy continues to shape the fate of many Fortune 500 companies, budgeting and staff for international relocations and assignments programs has declined for many. Best Practices, LLC conducted this research to identify the best practices and performance benchmarks associated with best-in-class International Mobility functions or programs.

SAMPLE KEY FINDINGS

Several participants had fully outsourced programs. The only activities performed within the company were "vendor management" and performance/cost reporting activities. The rationale from one of the directors at a company with this model was as follows: "Focus on what you know how to do, and find external resources to do the rest."

Benchmarking research showed that the average administrative cost per international relocation was $8,668 including the cost of tax administration programs. Best-in-class companies were able to relocate employees internationally for 45% less, or on average $4,681.
