Our Approach to Global Mobility

The needs of the global mobility marketplace are varied and increasingly demanding.  At Bristol, we apply a sincere and consistent level of curiosity which fuels needed inquiry and innovation, leading to maximized relational experiences.

Our Primary Focus

Managing more than 220 client relationships, we fully appreciate the diversity of needs, programs and cultures brought to light each time we establish a new relationship. However, rather than attempting to apply predetermined molds, Bristol is driven to ensure the Voice of the Customer is heard and fully considered, creating optimal mobility platforms that consistently produce targeted results.  

At Bristol, our singular focus is to create and maintain long-lasting, maximized relationships.  As one of a small number of fully independent global mobility firms, we are free from being forced to drive business to a real estate, or, transportation network. Our success is a direct result of each relationship we establish with our clients, their relocating employees, and our global network of supplier partners.  

Partnering with You

Our goal is to help you move your people around the world as seamlessly as possible. We are flexible enough to meet your needs for each relocation, whether that requires working with your suppliers or leveraging our worldwide network. We identify critical processes for improving workforce mobility and can recommend options as to how you can most effectively implement.

Putting Your Employees First

We recognize that relocation is a life-changing event. As a result, we view the relocation as moving through an experience and not a process. We put the employee’s needs first to make their relocation simple and painless, and transform what could be a stressful time into a positive, nurturing, and unifying experience for every family member. We help them navigate every stage of the relocation and each move, no matter the scale, is treated with care and receives our full attention.
