Combining the strength of its communication expertise with its leadership position in global mobility, Mercer announced today Mercer Belong® Global Mobility (BGM) –a new solution that fosters better connections between the business, global mobility talent managers and expatriate assignees. It is the latest enhancement to the firm’s Talent Impact™ Technology Solutions Portfolio.

Designed around Mercer’s innovative Belong® web portal framework, which streamlines the delivery of human resources content in a user-friendly way, BGM’s easy-to-use application delivers the benefits of working abroad to prospective assignees; helps employees prepare for their upcoming assignments; and strengthens ties with current expatriates throughout their assignments.

Through an interactive user-interface, BGM redefines customer experience via guides, quick links, social media, forms and third party resources. This access to self-service applications allows HR and line managers to stay connected with assignees and to better understand their critical role in the global mobility lifecycle.

“We are very excited to introduce a unique, all-encompassing, online resource for the mobility marketplace,” said Antonio Poglianich, Partner and Global Sales Leader for Mercer’s Communication practice. “BGM is designed to strip away the mystery behind what a global assignment involves both from the perspective of the employee going on an assignment to those supporting that individual. BGM also flexes to fit any organization’s needs.”

Added Ed Hannibal, Partner and Global Consulting Leader for Mercer’s Mobility practice, “Considering the investment that so many organizations have made in their expatriate programs, BGM fosters a way for key stakeholders – expatriates, managers and mobility specialists – to strengthen their business connection. With fewer resources managing expatriate programs, BGM provides employers an effective way to engage assignees 24/7 through an easy-to-navigate website, full of valuable information.”

BGM supports the globally mobile population regardless of where these employees are in the mobility lifecycle. The tool offers views for:

  • Employees interested in global assignments as part of their career planning.
  • Candidates considering or preparing for an international assignment.
  • Assignees preparing to repatriate or start another assignment.

Hosted by Mercer and available through a multi-year licensing agreement, BGM is easy to implement and can be up and running in as little as 12 weeks. The solution is offered to subscribers in three levels of customization – Lite, Advanced or Personalized.

BGM is also compatible with clients’ enterprise intranet. In addition, a smartphone-enabled version of the tool allows employees to access key contacts, resources and policies while on the go.
