Mobility Cost Control Trends at 2016 NFTC Conference

March 26, 2016

BGRS’s Diane Douiyssi Discusses Little Steps to Achieve Big Savings.

BGRS shares trends and insights in a variety of ways – attending conferences, delivering survey data and participating in panel discussions. It’s been a busy two days at the National Foreign Trade Council’s (NFTC) Annual International Human Resources Management Forum in Houston, TX, with talks, workshops, and networking opportunities covering topics from entering into new markets to business traveler healthcare requirements. The NFTC is focused on the improvement of the international environment for trade and investment and this prestigious forum is attended by many of the world’s largest companies and their human resources executives.

Our Director of Consulting Services, Diane Douiyssi, hosted a session, “Cost Control: Little Steps to Big Savings,” alongside representatives from Eli Lilly and Company and Hess Corporation. The panel examined mobility team volumes and resources as well as the trend towards cost reductions in mobility programs – especially in the healthcare and energy sectors – not an easy topic to tackle! Solutions proffered involved outsourcing, benchmarking, and increasing efficiency.

“The NFTC is distinctly focused on mobilizing and disseminating expertise on key issues arising in the world trading system, which makes this conference, is an excellent platform to come together and share insights on issues trending within mobility. As the role of mobility within multinational enterprises continues to evolve, talent management and the ability to move employees across borders become critical for global growth. Yet, like the rest of the wider business community, mobility leaders continue to be expected to realize efficiencies. This panel of leaders was able to offer a refreshed look at finding savings without simply resorting to the reduction of policy provisions that could affect the integrity of their programs.”
