Cross-border Relocation

Cross-border Relocation

The intent of the one-way Cross-border Relocation (also known as a Permanent or Indefinite Relocation) is for the employee to remain in the destination country. The transferee is hired/transferred to the destination country under a local employment status and severs ties with their home country. Pay and benefits are according to the local compensation and benefits plan. What makes this stand out from a standard local hire or within country hire, is that the individual is coming from outside the country. There are special considerations that need to be addressed and InterLink works with companies to determine policies and processes for the smooth transition of talent, no matter the origin country. Depending on the exact benefits authorized for a cross-border relocation, it may be considered a Local Plus relocation package, for example, if a COLA is authorized.

Policy benefits vary depending on the organization, employee’s specific situation, countries involved; however, common benefits are:

My first meeting with InterLink convinced me there was something better, and we made the switch to InterLink. InterLink proactively considers our needs to provide solutions and maximize results for us, and most importantly, our employees.

Our company was faced with changing relocation vendors due to the poor customer service level. When reviewing Interlink’s proposal and touring their site, I was impressed. However, I still had concerns about their size as it relates to managing national and global projects. Erroneously, I thought a relocation company had to be a well-known, to handle national and expatriation relocations. After two years into our contract, Interlink’s performance has exceeded my expectation. • Their service is cost competitive • Their customer service levels are highly responsive • They provide recommendations and guidance based on market trends • They customized relocation plans to meet our business strategies • Most importantly, they handle the entire relocation process in a seamless fashion.
