Cartus Wins UK B2B Marketing Award

Cartus is delighted to have been recognized with an award at the UK’s 2014 B2B Marketing Awards for our emerging markets initiative. Our emerging markets materials, which aim to support Cartus clients and their international assignees moving into hardship locations, won in the Best International Audience Campaign category.

Emerging Markets Initiative
Our emerging markets initiative includes 18 country profiles, 25 video interviews with on-the-ground suppliers, and research studies covering relocation into countries like India, Kenya, Mexico, Philippines, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. The information provides Cartus clients with the best practices needed to decide whether to move employees into such locations and – once decided – it helps to set realistic move timescales and ensure business objectives are met. For international assignees (and their families), the materials offer a realistic view of the host location from the challenges of finding a home and school to safety and security advice. To view these materials, visit our emerging markets resource page.

What’s Invisible but was Saved on Cartus’ Annual International Transit Day?

What’s Invisible but was Saved on Cartus’ Annual International Transit Day?

Cartus’ Second Annual International Transit Day was another impressive success! By taking alternative forms of transportation, our dedicated employees reduced emissions by approximately 2.3 tons. But how do you visualize this? One way to think of it is that one ton of CO2 would fill a modest one-story ranch house with a footprint of 1,250 square feet. So it’s the equivalent of almost 2.5 ranch homes’ worth of toxic emissions that were saved, along with approximately 237 gallons of gasoline and 5,217 reduced miles.

Cartus has promoted its ridesharing programs for years, and we have earned silver and gold “Best Workplace for Commuters” awards in the National Center for Transit Research’s “Race to Excellence” in years past.

The Biggest Challenges Facing Relocation Managers: Cartus Releases 2014 Survey Report

Working with Cartus’ broad base of global clients, we see firsthand the extensive array of challenges that global mobility managers face around the world. In our fourth annual Trends in Global Relocation: Biggest Challenges survey, 164 mobility managers provide snapshots of the issues they are encountering and what their companies are doing in response. Our Executive Summary gives you a look at their insights and the survey’s key findings.

In the survey, we take a look at the key concerns in 11 regions around the globe and identify the most difficult regions for managing relocation programs. Among this year’s findings that I found significant, Africa took over as the most challenging region for managing relocation, with last year’s most difficult region, Central and South America, falling all the way to fifth place. Controlling costs, housing, and compliance led the list of concerns, which is not entirely surprising since they’ve been among the top three issues vexing relocation managers in the previous three surveys.
