Success Story

CDK Global

Streamlined workflows freed up in-house HR resources and amplified ROI


Expansion led to cumbersome relocation policies

In 2014, CDK Global separated from its parent company and began establishing its own brand. As business grew, so did its mobile employee population. At the time, the company handled relocation services in-house and was struggling to manage various expatriate agreements. In 2017, CDK leaders began executing a 2020 strategy that included streamlining the global relocation program.



Growing company needs help

  • Multiple expatriate agreements and policies used CDK Global HR resources and time inefficiently
  • Less time devoted to employee experience
  • Had to outsource expatriate agreements
  • Mobility/HR leadership changes

“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. Although others were willing to provide the services we required, they seemed focused on how they could add additional cost to our agreement. We needed a partner that could be an extension of our own business and work with us, not for us.” — Sarah Goodrick-Meech, Former Mobility Manager, CDK Global (UK) Limited
