Corporate United is excited to announce our newly improved agreement with Weichert Workforce Mobility, which has resulted in a truly unique offering. Additionally, this is the first fully-leveraged workforce mobility agreement. Our highly successful, seven-year partnership with Weichert has already allowed more than 30 Corporate United members to utilize this global program.
A CHANGING MARKET
Recent mobility trends have shown a reduction in traditional U.S. Domestic Homesale services and an increase in global mobility. As the market continues to evolve, cost savings and other benefits steadily diminish, ultimately shifting the outlook of the program. According to Weichert, 40% of companies expect their relocation volume to increase in the next year, making it increasingly difficult to manage this complex and cost-intensive process. That's why it's Corporate United’s ongoing goal to make sure members get the biggest bang and, more importantly, value for their respective buck.
KEY PROGRAM UPDATES
By extending the term of our partnership with Weichert Workforce Mobility, we've added increased savings, a wider scope of integrated services and access to deep subject matter expertise for our member companies. These benefits include:
- Pricing lowered by an average of 10%
- Automatic, annual discounts based on total CU mobility volume
- Unique supply chain rebates to further enhance cost savings
- Annual contract compliance evaluation by an independent consultant
- Expanded service offering that includes Expatriate Tax Preparation and Consulting Services, a first in the industry
- Dedicated service team for members
- Addition of an in-house, dedicated workforce mobility subject matter expert to the CU team, who provides members with greater program analysis
Corporate United members will continue to enjoy the existing benefits they've come to rely on, including a dedicated global service team, custom metric scorecards and category lifecycle management.
As important as pricing may be, quality of service and continuous improvements to the program are just as critical. This five-year renewal and updated agreement provides Corporate United members with the confidence that the Weichert program will continue to provide legendary service experiences and evolve to meet the market's changing needs. Relying on Weichert and Corporate United to oversee your company's workforce mobility plan (while you focus on core competencies) will ensure that your program and policies reflect best practices for yor industry, and identify your company as an employer of choice among the talented candidates you seek.This blog post was a collaborative piece between Corporate United and our supplier partner, Weichert Workforce Mobility.
