“For 80 years, Runzheimer International has enabled thousands of companies of all sizes to increase the effectiveness of their most important resources….mobile workers. The strategic importance of employee mobility continues to grow. A well-managed workforce program helps organizations address the needs of mobile workers by providing the technology, processes and procedures necessary to effectively conduct business outside the walls of a traditional office.
"In virtually every company, the complexity of mobility programs – including business driving, relocation, travel, and virtual work – are constantly evolving and changing at an increasing pace. Employee mobility programs have had a tendency to be very fragmented. Often times, companies need to see the value in looking across company silos in order to determine ways to optimize and simplify. In reality, most organizations simply put various employee mobility practices in place over time driven by specific departments. Unlike company health care plans, mobility programs then evolve from that point and typically become more disparate.
"We help companies recognize the value of taking a holistic approach to employee mobility. Looking at how mobility programs are managed provides new opportunities for cost savings, revenue generating capabilities and greater organizational agility. The importance of technology issues ranging from system integration, mobile devices, shared information and security aspects must also be addressed.
"An integrated workforce mobility approach, when properly executed, yields a competitive advantage. The pace of change in the workplace will continue to quicken. If cost savings, greater agility, and better employee relationships sound attractive, the time is now to evaluate how technology, business processes and sound decisions can help meet the needs of today's mobile workers."
