Talent Mobility

The Agile Workforce — Right People, Right Place, Right Cost

Websites are not the only things that need to be mobile-optimized. Today’s increasingly globalized environment means you need to be ready to mobilize people at every level of your organization.

Our proprietary mobility data and research are the best of their kind—and so are our consultants. We have the tools and the experience to help you meet your organization’s specific mobility needs, with practical advice behind the hard numbers. 

"There is a growing demand for … self-propelled, globally mobile professionals or ‘global citizens'."

Make the Right Moves at the Right Time

Your mobility success hinges on your ability to strike the right balance: to find the right people and put them in the right places, at the right cost, at the right time. 

We’ll work with your organization to improve your mobility processes while boosting employee satisfaction and growth. We map out effective talent strategies that are tailored to your organization’s unique goals, using our talent management and planning resources to help you select candidates, place them in your target regions, and iron out assignment details. Then we help you craft effective benefits and remuneration plans and communicate them to your employees. We can also support your expatriates to help ensure their success with Cultural Training and Global Leadership Profile to help you select and develop the right global leaders.

Last but not least, we give you quantifiable returns on investment. We measure program ROI and assignment success, and help you with succession and retention processes.

At Mercer Mobility, we’re here to keep your organization moving.

Get Local Data With a Global Perspective

What does it really mean for someone to uproot his or her family and move to Singapore, New York or Bahrain? Let us tell you.

Our information solutions for mobility put the highest-quality, most-detailed data available into your hands. Our Cost of Living data, the most comprehensive of its kind, is just one of our many market-leading tools and resources. Our leading benchmark data, Quality of Living data, and Hardship Ratings are all exclusive to Mercer and our clients. And they’re ready to access now.

Mercer Makes Mobility Easy

Our Mobility Starter Kit divides “moving” into three tiers: a pre-move informative guide, a post-move expat management program, and a more comprehensive kit for companies managing multiple international assignments. We also have tools specifically designed for executives. So whatever your mobility needs, we’re equipped to meet them.

Many companies are transitioning from providing full expat packages to “local plus” packages with specific add-ons. We’ll help you choose the right package for the assignment and business goals at hand.

How We Can Help

We combine education, consulting, software data, and online tools to offer you the full breadth of mobility services. Our mobility experts provide:

  • Mobility data to help you determine pay, benefits, relocation costs, and more.
