David Enser, a co-founder of The RES Forum, wrote this article that investigated the reward and compensation packages of global mobility programmes.

In the study it was discovered that now companies increasingly analyse the rationale for a relocation or assignment, match compensation and benefits accordingly and monitor the ROI for employer and employee. The study discovered that traditional assignments and support packages are becoming increasingly outdated and employees now seek choices in what compensation and benefits they may be offered during their assignments. Also revealed in the study was how compensation and rewards differ depending on the type of assignment. In the past, organisations have shied away from packages that allowed employees to cherry pick rewards and support benefits, but many companies are now realising they experience greater overall success and ROI if they offer more competitive packages which support the employee’s individual needs more fully. As a technical partner and member of The RES Forum, Bristol helps organisations conduct assignment prep and reviews to develop programs more tailored to the needs as outlined in this article of the organisations and their employees.
