Global Mobility Solutions is the original pioneer of the benefits of pre-decision services. Our clients know that partnering with us at the start of the relocation process helps identify the markers of a successful relocation and greatly enhances transferee productivity. Our wide range of services help clients identify those employees who are the best fit for the assignment. Relocation technologies and systems let clients manage employee relocation programs with ease.

Pre-Decision Services

Among the many services GMS offers, candidate assessments have become critical for clients to be able to assess expectations, skills, qualities, financial, and family issues that can impact the success of a relocation. Clients should examine candidate circumstances to identify prospects likely to succeed. For the candidate, pre-decision services that provide them with valuable information they can use to make their determination include helpful information about cost of living, housing markets, school reports, and moving costs.

The team at ADT Security has utilized the latest version of the 2018 Cost of Living Index from The Council for Community and Economic Research. They compared the costs of many common expenses across America and also included an interactive map to help visitors search through 263 metropolitan areas to find out which location could be the best fit for their financial situation.

Candidates indicate that community searches and tours are very helpful to them in understanding the new location and helping them to select areas that are best suited to their needs.

There are several benefits of pre-decision services for both the client and the candidate:
