Strategic recruiting and retention
The relocation industry has evolved into a fast-paced, cost-driven machine. Does it work? Yes. Is it effective? Often. Is it right for everyone being relocated? No, not always.
Over the past ten years, the relocation industry has experienced tremendous change. During the 1980’s, relocation flourished as corporations grew at unprecedented rates. Everyone was going global, expanding not only nationwide, but touching countries and cities around the globe. Taking care of employees ruled corporate philosophy, while cost efficiency remained somewhat of a moot point. Still, finding expeditious resources to manage the move and the employees’ relocation were critical. This drove the emergence of the relocation management company, a venue through which the corporation could outsource their relocation programs to professional organizations. These programs administered all benefits to cover the move that employees would otherwise have received from their company. Often these moves were the result of a promotion, thereby making the success of the relocation prove paramount.
After 9/11, relocation programs transitioned into a new, budget-driven era. No longer were most moves considered employee promotions, but rather strategic growth initiatives for the corporation. The relocation management firms were asked to share revenue and the industry was forced to adopt a better, faster, and cheaper operating system. With this new mentality driving relocations, the average employee’s needs were systematically met. However, on the executive level, relocation systematically failed to satisfy.
Relocation should be about connecting lifestyles and creating solutions that meet all the needs for every level of occupation. Just as a company may have several relocation policies according to the employee’s rank, so also relocation programs should be tailored to meet all of the needs of each individual move. Relocating an executive can cost a company well over five hundred thousand dollars. Accordingly, to achieve a successful move it is absolutely critical that a relocation program understands how to effectively connect an employee to social and civic organizations, while also providing for his or her lifestyle, house, and day-to-day needs.
Whether the corporation moves five hundred individuals each year, or is in the process of relocating their first executive, it requires strategic partnerships that offer multiple solutions to even the most complicated problems.
