Learn how AIRINC can partner with you to provide a strategic, personalized plan of action as well as the information you need to initiate the assignment.
Not all assignment locations are the same. A hardship allowance allows you to recognize living conditions and to acknowledge the challenges your employees face in designated locations. AIRINC’s hardship evaluations leverage an objective method to assess which locations warrant a hardship allowance and to determine how much hardship allowance to pay an employee.
It is important for you to offer a hardship allowance that is aligned to your mobility program goals and is competitive for your industry. AIRINC’s hardship allowance methodology leverages a two-step process that allows you to either select our standard recommendation or to tailor the allowance to your needs.
Conditions in locations can change suddenly, slowly over time, or remain relatively stable. Staying on top of changing conditions allows you to effectively support your hardship program. You are supported by dedicated hardship experts who proactively inform you when our allowances change. Our experts are also on hand to help you explain allowances, discuss competitive hardship allowance practices, and to learn more about our assessments.
Whether you need data for one location or hundreds, AIRINC delivers the hardship allowance information you need to support your program. For each location you receive a hardship evaluation and recommended hardship percentage. This provides you with an ultimate recommendation as well as the details behind our evaluation. The hardship evaluation details our assessment of 100 total points for the following categories:
