Global mobility services for owners, investors, directors and managers
A robust relocation strategy is one of the keys to growing in new territories. Kreston provides global mobility services together with our partners Expatland Global Network and relocation experts Harmony Relocation.
The Expatland Global Network (EGN) comprises global mobility teams from a range of vital services, helping business founders and expats move to new cities.
“When we needed to move two new employees to Sydney to commence their new positions we were referred to the Expatland Global Network. We were able to speak to the relocations member that day and the move commenced the following day. It was a very prompt turnaround time and the whole experience was seamless. The Expatland Global Network took the worry and headache away from moving our employees.”

We help to provide expatriate tax, immigration and wealth planning support for individuals and organisations who need to move senior and mid-management employees around the world. When it comes to global mobility, many smaller companies don’t have extensive human resources support. We’re able to give this to them, together with in-depth advice concerning the new location, the relocation process, and any other challenges the relocating employee might face in-country. We connect you to the services that any relocating employee would need, removing the need for scaled internal operation.
Our teams of global mobility consultants provide services across the entire spectrum, including tax advice, home search, relocation, education consulting, and insurance advisory, working together across borders to help expats move between cities.

The future of global mobility post-pandemic
We have continued to see activity throughout the pandemic with expats relocating as far as travel restrictions allowed and companies planning for when their employees can be completely mobile again.
The questions that global mobility companies need to ask themselves are:
- What will the options available to entrepreneurs and employees in the future look like?
- Will employees hop on an aircraft for a couple of days each month to visit an offshore office or workplace?
- Will those meetings now be held in person less frequently and be held virtually more instead?
The answers are uncertain. We suspect that the prospect of short-term offshore assignments will diminish. At the same time, we think that long-term business visitors and the pattern of non-domiciles establishing residences in foreign countries will continue.
Pre-pandemic, companies would fund and arrange the package for the entire move. However, we’re now seeing evidence that they’ll simply give relocating employees sums of cash, leaving them to make their own arrangements.
If this trend of leaving employees on their own continues, the solution will be to establish a holistic global mobility network to service all the needs to relocate individuals successfully. Such a solution is bound to win – provided that the network becomes established and is easy for employees to access from the first Google hit.

Remote, hybrid or digital nomad?
Covid has created a new wave of people embracing the opportunity to work from anywhere. “Digital nomad” was an expression first used in the late 90s, during the dot-com boom. The technology community took advantage of the latest developments, using nothing but an internet connection, a laptop and a mobile phone to set up an office anywhere.
