We now live in an era of global talent, where people and skills move fluidly between cities, countries and continents. This helps companies match supply and demand, and develops a generation of future leaders with global competencies and networks. At the same time, much of the modern workforce also seeks mobility in roles and responsibilities, expecting not only to move locations during their careers, but also to move between employers and functions.
By 2025, 75% of the global workforce will be Millennials, and according to research by Deloitte, 75% of companies expect to increase their population of mobile employees in the next 3-5 years. Yet, just 2% of companies currently consider their global mobility function world class. At MOVE Guides, we believe this is because there is currently no leading cloud technology solution in the market.
Today, we are pleased to publicly introduce the Talent Mobility Cloud, the first cloud-based application to bring together companies, vendors and our MOVE Advocates to support all types of mobile employees – new hire transitions, employee relocations and assignments. The application comes with our sophisticated global vendor and payment capabilities, spanning 100+ locations and currencies.
It has been an exciting year at MOVE Guides with a rapidly growing team and client base. We are working with mobility programs large and small – from growing tech companies, like SurveyMonkey to some of the largest companies on the planet, like Tesco. Our clients span the Americas, EMEA and APAC and industries ranging from professional services to manufacturing to retail and more.
In a market punctuated by intensifying compliance burdens, complex global business processes, changing workforce demographics and a rapid drive toward centralized and integrated HR systems, we believe organizations need the Talent Mobility Cloud more than ever. Our vision is for a secure and intuitive open system that integrates with other parts of the enterprise – from HCM systems to file storage – and provides the flexibility in policies, functions and user permissions that our multinational clients and their employees need.
For employees, the Talent Mobility Cloud delivers the first truly delightful relocation experience – from information discovery to policy flexibility to relocation task management. Our enterprise comes with an intuitive ‘consumer’ experience and a multinational MOVE Advocate team that counsels and supports employees with the empathy that can only be learned from having moving internationally themselves.
There are many new product modules in the works, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming product announcements. In the meantime, please learn more about the Talent Mobility Cloud on our website and search through our newly updates resource center for comprehensive white papers, case studies and factsheets on the future of global mobility.
