Graebel’s Mobility Strategy service responds to the needs of global
mobility professionals who want to elevate their roles and programs. In
fact, Graebel Global Mobility Summit research found mobility
professionals today spend 80 percent of their time on reactive tasks
such as managing administration and transactional or service issues*.
However, they want to do more of the opposite – to spend 86 percent of
their time on proactive work such as setting goals, measuring return on
investment and enhancing relationships*.

That’s why Graebel expanded its Mobility Strategy service, to deliver an
even more comprehensive suite of practical tools and collaborative
practices, along with its proven expertise, to help mobility
professionals demonstrate the full value of their program with a direct
connection to their company’s business goals.

“We’re pleased to expand our Mobility Strategy service, which will help
mobility professionals go beyond benchmarking and realize their goals of
being more strategic and proactive,” says Tim O’Shea, vice president,
mobility strategy at Graebel and leader of this service area. “Our
Mobility Strategy tools, powered by feedback you can trust and expertise
you can rely on, provide a unique experience that will transform
companies’ mobility programs into a business advantage.”

As part of the service, Graebel consultants use hands-on strategic
mapping tools to help mobility professionals get tangible information
that can be shared with other key stakeholders and business leaders. The
proprietary Graebel tools include:

  • Graebel
    Mobility PathBuilder
    : The program
    has three steps – Mobility Strategy, Return on Mobility and
    Stakeholder Engagement – each of which builds upon and complements
    each other. Graebel experts facilitate work sessions and guide
    mobility professionals through the program’s step-by-step roadmap,
    including defining the larger mobility story and the program’s
    business impact, and engaging key stakeholders to create ambassadors
    who can help influence program outcomes.
  • Graebel
    Mobility Quotient Insight
    : This
    diagnostic tool measures stakeholder feedback across a broad set of
    functions and activities to uncover gaps, identify strengths and
    provide a clear, 360-degree view of a company’s mobility program
    performance. This allows Graebel to pinpoint how mobility
    professionals can use resources more efficiently and better align with
    larger business goals.

In addition, the Graebel Mobility Strategy team has decades of
experience on both the provider and client side and can further guide a
company’s mobility strategy by aligning best practices and industry
trends with business needs and goals to:

  • Create and review mobility program policies
  • Offer change management planning
  • Guide internal communications and planning
  • Facilitate Voice of Customer focus groups and targeted surveys
