Location Evaluation Reports

How much additional compensation should you pay expatriates in difficult locations?

Are your expatriates assigned to locations that are inconvenient, unsafe, remote, polluted, or lacking adequate facilities?

If so—whatever the conditions—they need to know what they will face, and you need to know how to compensate them for it.

ORC’s Location Evaluation Reports, prepared in partnership with Control Risks Group, assess more than 140 cities worldwide on 14 factors that make up daily life for expatriates and their families. ORC establishes a recommended premium for the assignment. You see how we arrived at the number—we explain the rating for each factor and show its importance in the overall evaluation for the location. And ORC updates these reports regularly, so that the premium recommendation reflects the current situation “on the ground.”
