What Are Pre-Decision Services? Learn more about the relocation process, starting with pre-decision services

Global Mobility Solutions (GMS) 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 allows clients to identify those employees who are the best fit for the assignment. Relocation technologies and systems let clients manage employee relocation programs with ease.

Among the many services GMS offers, candidate assessments have become critical for clients to assess expectations, skills, qualities, and financial and family issues impacting relocation success. Clients should examine candidate circumstances to identify prospects likely to succeed. For the candidate, pre-decision services provide valuable information they can use to determine, including helpful information about the cost of living, housing markets, school reports, and moving expenses.

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