ST. LOUIS, June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IMPACT Group, a WBE-global career development firm, launched today the Global Mobility ROI Calculator, a cutting-edge online tool to help HR and Global Mobility managers better understand the financial impact of assignee attrition and the positive financial implications of global mobility support programs.

"We're very focused on helping our clients determine the value of investing in global readiness  support with real business tools like our new Global Mobility ROI Calculator," says Ray Halagera, President at IMPACT Group. "With only 9% formally measuring the ROI of an international assignment, most HR managers still account only for completed assignments and aren't seeing the full picture, including the financial perspective. We're introducing the ROI calculator to help HR professionals begin this discussion and better understand AN assignment failure's impact on the bottom line, and conversely, the positive financial effect of appropriately supporting  global mobility."

IMPACT Group's new Global Mobility ROI Calculator combines research- and real world-based equations with user-provided corporate benchmarks to help organizations calculate the value that global mobility support offers their specific organization. The revolutionary Global Mobility ROI Calculator includes:

  • An international assignment ROI calculator tool
  • Tips for personalized measurement
  • Links to case studies highlighting successful global mobility strategies

In about 10 seconds, you can follow the three-step process to input your company's annual number of new families on assignment, estimated costs per 29-30 month assignment and your company's failure rate to find out the organization's potential savings estimate when using global readiness support.

"Through this quick exercise, managers will actually be able to see how cost-effective global mobility support programs are," continued Halagera. "We hope the new Global Mobility ROI Calculator helps them begin to investigate global mobility support's impact on their bottom line, whether they use it for pre-assignment assessment, pre-decision assistance, spouse/partner job search, family acclimation and integration, or a group move situation."
