Graebel Companies, Inc. Launches Mobility PathBuilder Program

Guided, multi-step roadmap and strategic tools help companies
leverage power and prove the value of talent mobility

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Graebel Companies, Inc., a leading provider of talent and workplace
mobility solutions for Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, today
launched its Graebel Mobility PathBuilderSM program aimed at
helping companies define a mobility strategy, quantify mobility’s value
through data, and gain enterprise-wide alignment and support.

Graebel consultants facilitate work sessions and guide mobility
professionals through the program’s step-by-step roadmap, which is based
on field-tested concepts and proven results developed over the past 12
months working with companies around the world.

“We’re pleased to offer mobility professionals the support and tools to
help them become more strategic leaders and leverage the untapped power
of mobility for their companies and employees,” says Tim O’Shea, vice
president, mobility strategy and consulting at Graebel. “Mobility has
long been seen as a tactical investment of moving employees from point A
to point B with the least amount of disruption. Through Graebel Mobility
PathBuilder, mobility professionals can create a business advantage,
strengthen their overall organization and claim a seat at the strategic

Graebel research revealed underlying business needs for the Graebel
Mobility PathBuilder program. It found today’s mobility professionals
spend 82 percent of their time on coordination and administration, with
little time left for high-value strategic functions. However, their
future vision for mobility is to spend 96 percent of their time on
proactive activities like setting goals, measuring return on investment
and enhancing relationships.

“The mobility function is one of the most potentially powerful drivers
of business today, yet it’s often underrepresented or overlooked within
companies,” O’Shea says. “Mobility practitioners have a strong pent-up
demand for precisely the answers the Graebel Mobility PathBuilder
provides in order to revolutionize their programs and make a bigger
business impact.”

HR and mobility leaders can learn more in this comprehensive Mobility
PathBuilder Guidebook:

It outlines these three steps in the Mobility PathBuilder program – each
of which build upon and complement each other:

  • Mobility Strategy: A Graebel survey found 42 percent of
    mobility teams don’t have a defined mission statement to guide their
    program and capture mobility’s purpose within the overall company.
    That’s why this step involves creating a Mobility Mission Statement
    tied to overall business goals and aligned with other departments. In
    only a single afternoon session alongside a Graebel mobility expert,
    companies can identify strengths and vulnerabilities – and set a path
    to develop the strategy and tactics to achieve their mission.
  • Return on Mobility: Currently, 43 percent of mobility
    professionals polled by Graebel say their companies measure return on
    investment by volume, the number of relocations conducted, meaning
    they’re missing key insights that tell the larger mobility story. To
    better articulate business impact, the Graebel Mobility PathBuilder
    program helps companies determine their Return on Mobility (ROM). ROM
    is supported by data and includes benchmarking beyond just revenue,
    such as employee performance and retention, increased sales/profit and
    relocation quality and volume. ROM can be used to address different
    stakeholders’ questions about the value and impact of mobility.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: Graebel found 51 percent of mobility
    professionals find it difficult to get stakeholder attention. Yet
    engaging the right stakeholders – including management, chief human
    resource officers and compensation/benefits managers – creates
    important ambassadors who can help influence program outcomes. This
    step develops an action plan that identifies, educates, excites and
    activates stakeholders in mobility’s mission with win-win scenarios.
