Whether you are hiring new recruits from abroad or moving existing employees from one office to another office in a different location, there are many administrative tasks and other things which need to be organised to get the person moved, settled in and integrated into their new role. Time is money and if your employee can be efficiently supported then the time it takes to get their move organised can be optimised. By working with a relocation company you won’t need an in-house department and you will draw on people who bring the highest levels of experience and expertise.
Providing the option of a supported relocation is good for the company image, it shows that you value your employees, their families and their wellbeing. Being able to offer a professionally supported relocation is a big asset when headhunting, it will give your company an advantage as it gives the employee incentive to move without feeling like a relocation would be too overwhelming. Show your employee that you value their time by letting them avoid the ‘leg’ work when they partner with a relocation consultant they are relieved of all the big and small organisational tasks related to a move. Supporting not just the employee but also their spouse and/or their family is also hugely beneficial to the overall well being of the employee.
The way an employee feels once they have moved to a new location can be imperative to their productivity. If they feel settled and happy then they will be motivated to start into their new role. They can be present physically and mentally knowing all the formalities of their move have been taken care of. There are many costs, such as hotel costs, which can be avoided if an employee can relocate directly into furnished accommodation or their own apartment/house.
