Introducing augmented global mobility
The right technical platform is crucial for business in that it must contain the right capabilities, be operationally efficient, financially viable and sustainable for the future. One of the biggest challenges is the obstacle of legacy systems and, traditionally, the inability to get systems to 'talk' to each other.
This is no different in Human Resources (HR) than any other part of the business. In fact, it could be argued that HR has been particularly slow to take on new technology, relying too heavily on the main HRIS systems.
Centre of Excellence
In a world with greater use of Centres of Excellence (CoEs) and outsourcing, the network, or ecosystem, is becoming more devolved. The use of advances in technology, such as RESTful APIs for systems to communicate in a fast and easy way, become more important in making the connections.
Extensive eco system
In the global mobility community, our network is extensive - both inside the organisation and with external parties. At MAI we believe that we have the tools to enable you to add greater strategic value to the business.
Managing your global workforce
Ways of working have evolved and how organisations and employees work internationally has changed with it. For global mobility teams, business travellers have been unwanted guests, but increased compliance obligations and corporate risk profile has meant that they can no longer be ignored.
Augmenting the employee experience
The employee experience has often been outsourced to relocation service providers who frequently do an excellent job in supporting employees and their families. We are seeing the use of technology in this industry providing innovative ways to engage with the employee and giving them control of their move.
Financial management is more than just a cost estimate
Cost has been a significant focus of organisations over the last decade and we have seen mobility come under significant pressure to reduce, or at least justify, cost. However organisations have been slow to take up or develop this critical service.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more readily available and can be used to harness this complex data. AI is not solely for finanacial analysis and is already available in global mobility. AI can come in many forms and below are two examples that can assist global mobility:
