Spread across a chain of thousands of islands, Indonesia has the world’s largest Muslim population.

Four Steps to U.S. Relocation Policy Design

U.S. companies that relocate their employees face a constantly changing environment. On the one hand, talent management strategies require competitive relocation benefits; on the other hand, cost containment must also be considered. Add in a fluctuating real estate market requiring both home-sale and home-finding benefits that meet employees’ needs, and the result is a fluid situation that requires organizations to keep their relocation policies updated nearly minute by minute.

So, how do you get started?

Our white paper, “Unlocking Effective Policy Design: Tips for U.S. Domestic Managers,” acts as a guide to help you manage the ups and downs inherent in creating or updating relocation policies. It’s critical to take a complete view of the process. An effective plan for success will help you achieve a balance of employee satisfaction and organizational support.
