Debunking the Myths of Corporate Relocation: Is there really a "Single Point of Contact" or an "Exception Free Program"? 

Does the relocation process truly lend itself to a single point of contact? Is there a policy approach that truly has zero exceptions? Interact with your peers and industry experts to figure out how mobility professionals can set realistic expectations for employees during the course of their relocation. Together, we will problem-solve how to streamline the various points of contacts for a relocation and how to reduce exception requests. This myth-busting, interactive discussion will offer insight and ideas for improving communications with your corporate and vendor partners as well as your transferees.
