Covid-19 accelerated change in people’s expectations of working life. It broadened the boundaries of what is possible. The huge shift to remote and hybrid work – including cross-border – has drawn Global Mobility’s (GM) expertise centre stage in solving today’s significant talent challenges.

Working closely with external service providers and internal stakeholders in this space, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has pioneered a data-insights-driven mobility programme that shows how technology can support GM deliver as a true strategic partner.

Understanding the "why" of mobility

HPE’s Global Mobility team, led by Kerwin Guillermo, Global Head of Mobility, is responsible for people on the move, ranging from remote and relocating talent, foreign local hires and frequent business travellers.

Its Global Employment Mobility (GEM) programme is a key driver of HPE’s global workforce strategy. Focusing on the “why” of Global Mobility, it is elevating the talent mobility experience based on the three pillars of attract, retain and develop throughout the mobility lifecycle.

HPE’s GEM is supported by a digital ecosystem that is the result of highly successful partnerships with external suppliers, including WorkDay, Fragomen, Airinc and Sirva, and a range of innovative technology solutions.

This includes HPE’s Making Good Mobility Decisions (MGMD) evaluation tool for managers; the content-rich, persona-driven engagement solution HPEngage; relocation and immigration solution, HPEmbark; the Mobility Analytics Portal (MAP), which unifies internal and external sources into one platform; and Edge-to-Office (E2O) to expand opportunities around hybrid working.

Date-driven employee engagement

Together these tools and supporting datasets are making a profound impact on decisions around talent deployment and workforce planning by pulling together multiple data sources.

This streamlined approach allows helpful conversations supporting the delivery of global mobility, while the data analytics raise the employee experience as well as generating efficiencies for the company, the judges concluded.

“This clearly articulated entry statement demonstrates the value of a transparent relocation programme supported by data analytics,” said the judges. “The entry statement focuses on why mobility is necessary and how a positive impact can flow from it for this organisation.

“It is an innovative solution that demonstrates passion in development and really gives back value to the Global Mobility community”

Another enthused, “HPE seems to be a unique offering that really delves in the reason, the costs and the selection process around Global Mobility.  

“The technology solutions have resulted from stakeholder interviews to understand business talent priorities and to identify trends and future expectations within employee mobility. This has resulted in bespoke initiatives to ensure that good mobility decisions are made and that the analytics portal is used effectively to ensure a competent talent retention programme. This been articulated very clearly showing how collaboration with stakeholders can result in credible relocation outcomes.”

Gratefully collecting the award, Kerwin Guillermo said, it was “amazing” to win, adding that “what's next is exciting.” Speaking as a panelist at the Future of Work Festival, he explained how he and his team and partners in the Global Mobility community are continuing to figure out the future and “working out how we attract, recruit, retain and develop and apply mobility in the workforce as we compete for talent and develop people over the years.”Visit the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website
