2017 Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings: Relocation

By The Editors
HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today Global staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute both directly to buyers through our own mailing lists and indirectly by sending service providers the link to send to their clients. Once collected, response data are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis to score each provider that has a statistically significant sample. For this survey, we required 10 responses from eight companies. We reached out to more than 35 providers of relocation services. In order to determine an overall ranking, we analyse results across three subcategories: features breadth, deal sizes, and quality. Using a predetermined algorithm that weighs questions and categories based on importance, we calculate scores in all three subcategories, as well as an overall score.

Key areas where global talent acquisition leaders can make the biggest impact, as revealed by new research.

Understanding innovation is key—as well as knowing what the reasons are behind an organisations’ failure to do so. In the quest to understand innovation, the research study discovered that talent acquisition professionals are facing a challenge that is termed here as “nonnovation.” This happens when HR executes initiatives with the intent to drive new and meaningful change, but somehow the change does not happen.

The Compliance Maze

How to effectively create a data management strategy whilst navigating multiple policy requirements. By Jayson Saba When operating across national and continental boundaries, HR and payroll professionals must navigate a monumental maze of requirements that can become quite stressful without the right resources. Generally speaking, the tasks that HR and payroll professionals are required to do can be broken out into three categories: • Company policy: Professionals must comply with policies and processes that are unique to a company and are there to help conduct business in a certain way. It could be industry standards or policies that drive things such as efficiency, environmental and social responsibility, and cost savings. • Negotiated agreements: They also must comply with collective bargaining agreements, supplier contracts, client contracts, or social/community contracts. These are negotiated rules but legally binding. • Laws and regulations: Government (local, state, provincial, federal/national) rules and regulations that were passed through legislation need to be followed.
