Simplify your approach to international assignments

Administering assignments. Mitigating risk. Improving assignee satisfaction. Addressing potential new operating environments resulting from reorganizations. Reducing assignment-related costs. Each can add a layer of complexity in managing international assignment programs.

KPMG's Mobility Consulting Services (MCS) can help. For more than 30 years, our experienced team of professionals have been helping large and small multinational organizations, in different industries with varied requirements, better manage their globally mobile workers.

A wide range of services and support

Our global team combines experience in global mobility, international human resources and tax professionals to offer administrative outsourcing services and support. Some of these include: 

  • Developing and enhancing policies and procedures and tailoring approaches to address specific global mobility challenges
  • Providing strategic and administrative support to global workforces to help improve compliance, cost effectiveness and return on investment
  • Designing services around the assignment life cycle:
    • Helping assignees get their assignments underway (planning, relocation and immigration coordination)
    • Providing support during assignments (payment of allowances, payroll and shadow payroll support)
    • Coordinating destination services and getting them home or on to their next assignment (discontinuing allowances, coordinating return relocation)

Transform your program with KPMG

Through our Global Mobility Transformation, we can help you incorporate leading practices in global workforce management. Our approach:

  • Provides broad and deep analysis that can lead to program design (or redesign) to better align organizational structures, communications, talent management initiatives and stakeholder requirements. 
  • Reviews global mobility policies for any new ideas or improvements including those in our Global Assignment Policies & Practices survey, which summarizes key mobility policy data with more than 600 participating organizations.

Think global, act local

As a part of the KPMG International network of member firms with offices in 146 countries, we help clients to “think global, act local”: We may have global reach, but we also have the local-market knowledge--business conditions, mobility issues and capabilities—to help an international assignment program succeed.
