Posted by: Jennifer White, Manager, Consulting Solutions

As the mobility landscape continues to evolve, is your program keeping pace? Extended Business Travelers (EBTs) are on the rise as organizations seek cost-effective alternatives to long-term assignments and employees look for flexible career development opportunities thatEBT insert1.JPG do not involve a longer-term move.

Cartus’ recent pulse survey takes a look at the unique challenges facing organizations as they manage EBTs, and the steps you can take to make your program more strategic when supporting this growing population of employees.

Is Your EBT Program Where It Needs to Be?

Despite three-quarters of survey respondents indicating that EBTs will rise over the next few years, only one-third have a formal EBT policy in place, and 78% of companies are not using a tool to track EBTs. With EBT opportunities, and challenges, on the rise—tax compliance, immigration, and tracking—this is clearly an area that organizations need to focus on.
