Topia announced its upcoming plans for new functionality


Topia, the leader in Global Talent Mobility and distributed work technology, today announced its upcoming plans for new functionality which will help HR and global mobility departments manage group, project team and bulk moves more effectively.

Companies often need to move large numbers of employees to different locations for many reasons, including new stores or sites opening, projects being carried out in other locations, teams being sent to conferences, company off-sites and large-scale onboarding of graduate recruits taking place. In these cases, HR and mobility professionals need to quickly get holistic insights into the status of the mobile group and any associated mobility costs, along with service delivery and risks, all while managing tasks and data permissions as a group. Groups could consist of a mix of assignees, transferring employees, business travelers or commuters, and need to be managed both at an individual case level and as an overall group.

As part of Topia’s market-leading global talent mobility and distributed work platform, it will be adding a new feature that enables organizations to:

  • Manage dedicated initiation and ongoing management workflows for the group as a whole, including combinations of assignees, localizing employees, commuters and business travelers
  • Run cost simulations to identify and optimize projected costs for groups comprised of different types of mobile employees
  • Run pre-travel risk assessments on a group basis to identify any compliance issues
  • Manage and report at a group level

“We’re excited to be developing this feature to help support all of the ways we’re seeing companies mobilize groups or teams to move around the world – whether it be driven by the nature of their industry, such as oil/gas, defense or professional services, or by ad hoc events, such as office moves, group travel or redundancy programs,” Chantel Rowe, VP of Product at Topia, said. “We want to ensure our customers have the tools they need to get the right teams in place wherever they need to be in the world, while also optimizing and managing cost and compliance risk.”

This new feature builds on a series of innovations Topia has made in recent years to create the most comprehensive technology platform to support global talent mobility, travel compliance and remote and distributed work.

The functionality is targeted to be released in Summer 2023.
