Policy Review, Candidate Selection

With Sterling Lexicon by your side, you’ll have a dedicated account manager and a team of highly experienced and caring advisors to help you with:

  • The right strategy

Whether we start with an existing strategic framework or develop a new one, we’ll bring a comprehensive exploration and understanding of your company culture and goals together with our extensive knowledge of current industry practices, global markets and trends.

We’ll advise you on cost projections, immigration and tax compliance and risks, and the steps we recommend that you take to achieve the best results for your company and
your employees.

  • The right people

We can help you build the tools to identify and select the best candidates for specific roles and locations and design competitive compensation and support packages that are aligned with your industry peers and current market data. 

Once your candidates accept a temporary assignment or a permanent move, we’ll work with them to ensure they fully understand the policy and know what to expect – from the total financial picture to what day-to-day living really looks like in the new location, all the way through to the ultimate end goals of
the move.

“Prior to contracting with Sterling Lexicon, CDK spoke to a few different relocation companies, but we felt like we were just another client to them. We needed a partner that could be an extension of our own business and work with us, not for us.”

  • Home search and full property management, including lease negotiations, deposits, inspections, and utility hook-ups

The Right Next Steps

When the time is right, we can manage all aspects of the departure and repatriation of your assignees, or advise you both on how to successfully transition to a localized, or host-country arrangement where feasible.

We’ll help you analyze the success of the assignment and continue the strategic planning conversations about how to make the most of the experience, the investment and the knowledge gained.
