Mobility Program Considerations

The rapid spread of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on the global economy and the way in which organizations are adjusting business options in response. Mobility is no exception. As with any rapidly evolving situation, mobility-related practices are also quickly changing. SIRVA is encouraging all organizational leaders, as well as internal functions (inclusive of mobility) to leverage government and health organizational information to better understand the virus, the ways in which individuals can aid in containing the spread of the virus, and the locations that are impacted by the virus. Pertinent information and valuable resources can be found on the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

During times of crisis and uncertainty, it is critical that organizations understand their responsibilities with regard to their employee populations. The following is intended to provide guidelines for mobility leaders and teams that will help them support their organizations in efforts to minimize the impact of the virus. We encourage you to review it in its entirety, including the Resources section, which provides valuable links to employers regarding various aspects of dealing with COVID-19.

As a reminder, good hygiene is fundamental to both the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 pandemic. SIRVA strongly encourages organizations to remind their associates to pay heightened attention to good hygiene practices as they travel on their relocations and assignments.
