If you thought that COVID had halted employee relocation to a stop - think again. We’re here to tell you all about how good global mobility software has allowed companies to continue hiring the best talent around the world - even in these difficult times. 


And it’s because the benefits of hiring internationally greatly surpass the expectations of any company that we want to give you some advice on what software you should choose. It’s a big decision and it will probably affect the future of your project, so why don’t we start already?


These are the main differences between Jobbatical and Localyze - two immigration partners that focus on employee relocation and you can consider.


In the subject of software.


Sometimes all we need is just one person. Someone to count on, in times of need, in times of uncertainty. Jobbatical offers exactly that: a “guardian angel” that will personally help the new employee feel welcome in the new location. With a large in-house team of experts, the software is a mere extension of the help they provide in the most humane way possible. But since you’re probably managing more than one case, let me give you some certainty: with Jobbatical’s software you will be able to save time, automate repetitive tasks, and provide a delightful relocation experience for your international employees.


While on the subject, the main essence of Localyze is a Software - an all-in-one software that includes immigration, relocation, taxes & legal documents. They also assign a case manager in every relocation process to provide personal support and guidance for every step - to really make the newly-located employee feel welcome.


Relocation, relocation, relocation.

Where your company is located and what’s the final destination of your new hires: two major factors to account for when choosing the right aid for your project.


Jobbatical is country agnostic. You can relocate people anywhere in the world, and on top of that, we can handle immigration applications in Estonia, Germany, Czech Republic, and Spain (and hopes to add Finland early next year). Plus, Jobbatical covers the whole relocation process, from the most complex elements to the simplest – immigration to getting familiar with the neighborhood. Because relocation doesn’t end at arrivals - quite the contrary. And Jobbatical is there to help. 


Also, Jobbatical has a “Work wherever you're happiest” policy - while there’s a main office in Estonia, most of the Jobbatical folks are spread around the world. This gives us a global vision and a more empathetic spirit - something extremely important when relocating talent around the world.


Localyze, on the other hand, is a team of 14 people mainly based in Hamburg, Germany. And while they have a very exhaustive relocation process, they can only relocate to Germany. 


At the end of the day, the choice will depend on more than a few factors. And since we understand this - we’re here to help. Feel free to contact us for a 1:1 consultation.
