TECHNOLOGY CONVENIENCE МОBILE More than twice as many Millennials as non-Millennials use a mobile device to research products and read user reviews. Millennials even donate to charities and couses through their mobile devices. In fact, among those who donate, nearly 50% do it by phone. So, why do you think it's any different with relocation? Millennials, and all transferees, want to be able to relocate the same way they do everything else in their lives: conveniently. Your transferees don't just want to be able to see something on their phones, either. They want to interact with the platform, and be oble to use it in an accessible way. 25% BY 2017 OF ENTERPRISES WILL HAVE AN ENTERPRISE APP STORE. 82% of mobile media consumption time is through apps, and 18% is from mobile browsers. | IT'S NECESSARY.

THIS NUMBER DOUBLES EVERY MONTH. GLOBAL DATA IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE BY 40% YEAR OVER YEAR. sO WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH ALL THIS DATA? WE SHOULD BE SEGMENTING THE INFORMATION, AND USING IT TO GUIDE FUTURE BUSINES S DECISIONS. You can also use big data to connect your current employees with new employees. Ask çoworkers questions about their relocation experience or insider tips for their office and city and present the analytics to transferees. This will help make new hires feel immediately connected to their peers. Especially because, 70% OF MILLENNIALS ARE MORE EXCITED ABOUT A DECISION THEY'VE MADE WHEN THEIR FRIENDS AGREE WITH THEM.
