Relocating to South Africa: What You Need to Know

The Republic of South Africa is located at the southern tip of the African continent, encompassing a variety of cultures, languages, and religions. With major cities like Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban, the country is a frequent relocation destination for international assignees. Our latest Cartus Emerging Market Watch on South Africa discusses the key challenges associated with living and working there, including regional differences, security, transportation, and cultural issues.

Regional Differences
With more than 1.22 million square kilometers, South Africa is a large country. The distances between cities can be vast—not just geographically, but culturally, too. Johannesburg is the country’s most populous city and the most westernized, with high-end shopping malls and restaurants.

Compliance 360 Lowers Risk for Cartus Clients

The main goal of the Cartus Supply Chain team is to make sure that our clients and their transferring employees work with the most qualified, trusted, and performance-focused suppliers. To do that, regionally based Cartus experts select and manage our extensive global network of third-party providers with a focus on ethics and risk management. This focus has always been critical, and as locations and regulations have expanded, so too has awareness. Respondents to a 2014 Cartus survey rated compliance among the top challenges of global relocation programs, up 12% from just two years ago.

Now, Cartus has implemented an industry-leading risk management program called Compliance 360® that reinforces our ongoing management practices. The system enables the Cartus supply chain to automate and document existing monitoring and reporting processes, which will further aid us in controlling the inherent risk factors associated with managing third-party vendors. The system tracks hundreds of data points and allows us a 360-degree view into our service providers’ accomplishments in the global compliance arena.
