A combination of factors has led to housing market challenges worldwide, leaving global companies struggling to find affordable living accommodations for mobile employees who are relocating for corporate assignments. From Dallas to Dubai to Delhi, there are more people looking for rental, temporary and permanent housing than there is inventory. Given how important finding suitable housing is to every relocation, mobility managers are under pressure to find innovative strategies when facing the challenges associated in the current market.

To help mobility teams address these challenges, we’ve created this topic paper that explores unique housing market conditions in the Americas, APAC and EMEA. It also provides eight ways for mobility managers to partner with their relocation management company to circumvent them, keeping exceptional relocation experiences for their mobile employees top of mind.

Here’s a preview of what you’ll find in the topic paper:

  • Four factors that have led to a lack of available, affordable housing in the Americas
  • Specific geo-political and market-related influences that have impacted housing availability and pricing in EMEA
  • The unique challenges facing each of APAC’s five top relocation destinations
  • Eight common strategies mobility managers can explore with their relocation provider to support mobile employees’ relocation housing needs, globally

While there are unique scenarios in each region around the world, by planning ahead and communicating often, setting expectations and assessing budgets, and being flexible and thinking outside the box, mobility managers can navigate current global housing challenges in each market.
