AROUND THE WORLDWIDE ERC ®

Collective Wisdom
To help keep you in the know on many of the topics or questions that are top of mind for
Worldwide ERC® corporate/HR members, here are some of the things currently being
discussed in their dedicated community group at worldwideerc.org/community.

HOME LEAVE BENEFITS

Many expats can't take home leaves
now due to the travel restrictions,
primarily, [of] not being able to return
to the country of assignment. How
does your company address the
home leave benefit if [expats are not]
able to use it? Is home leave being
deferred to the following year (which
is what we are currently doing)? What
if they are repatriating and not able to
use home leave? Are most companies
just cancelling it and not providing any
replacement? 

BUYOUTS, BONUSES, AND TEMPORARY LIVING

Would appreciate your input on these three items!
1. Does your domestic relocation package offer a guaranteed
buyout? If so, do you offer employees 100% of the appraised
value? We offer 100% of the buyout if the home isn't sold after
a mandatory 90 days of marketing.
2. Do you offer a homesale bonus for the buyout program? We
offer 2% of sale within 30 days (maxed at $10K) and 1% within
31 to 90 days (same max).
3. Do you offer temporary living lodging, specifically for renters/
lower packages? We offer 30 days but are thinking about
reducing to 15 days.

PERMANENT INTERNATIONAL MOVES

MOBILITY PROGRAMMING

I am trying to come up with new mobility
programming with a strong tie to learning and
development and leadership. Can you share some
examples of what you're doing at your company?
It can be industry-specific-just looking to start
an online brainstorm. We are a communications
consulting company. We only use expat
programming for C-suite positions and finance
positions. Our leadership development program
died on the vine a few years ago because of cost
and challenges with placement at repatriation.

We will be working on our relocation policy for
permanent international moves, and I'm trying to
get a sense of how other companies structure
their policies and typical benefits offered. Do
you have a tiered/points-based policy structure
or core/flex? If you offer flex benefits, what is
typically offered? Is anyone offering new benefits
that weren't previously in your policy?

Read the answers or add your own comments
to these questions, or post a new one of your
own in the Worldwide ERC® Community's
Corporate Benchmarking Forum.
