Mobility - May 2020 - Special Covid-19 Edition - 16

AROUND THE WORLDWIDE ERC ®

national vice president of UnitedHealthcare; and
Amanda Brown, global mobility senior program
manager for Snowflake.
"I know the information shared today was well
received, very relevant, and we had a lot of attendees
listening in," says Gleason, describing the importance
of such a discussion amid the historic uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. "We want to make sure that
we share essential information so that other companies have the most relevant and specific information
with regard to the relocation market as we navigate
through this unprecedented time."
As the panelists discussed their expectations
about the foreseeable future, one overarching
theme emerged: the importance of flexibility. For
example, they noted, expats across every industry
most likely would not be able to travel home in a
timely manner due to government travel restrictions and flight cancellations. It is vital during
these times for employers to have a plan of action
to keep in contact with their employees until they
are able to return home.
"Getting up-to-date information out to employees has been a challenge for certain organizations,
due to how the current information is changing so
rapidly, because different governments have different restrictions in place and employees are now

no longer able to leave," says UnitedHealthcare's
Holley. "So, finding a way that you can get information or push alerts to them in real time has been
something that we've seen a lot of interest in."
The reality laid out by Arwindekar is that implications from the pandemic may last months rather than
weeks, and companies should take that into consideration when making plans for relocations.
"Although the challenges are there, the day to day
has been a struggle trying to determine what we're
doing with the mobility of individuals-not necessarily having a plan in place but building the plan
as we go along," says Brown. "We're doing the best
we can with what we can and definitely utilizing the
technology around us."
One positive outcome brought to light during the
discussion is how this strenuous time has forged
powerful bonds of camaraderie across the industry
and the country.
"It was a pleasure moderating an extraordinary
webinar that brought together several of industry's
most respected global relocation and medical professionals," says Gleason. "The discussion provided
tremendous insights into how these national brands
are handling the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic."
