We get a lot of questions from clients and prospects about how to go about building a new relocation program. In fact, there are reasons to build a new program outside of the obvious reason that one does not exist. Companies that are going through a consolidation or merger will at times need a new program, as well as companies that have measured their current program only to find that it is not meeting employee needs. Further, there are many companies who may not need a whole new program, but want to tweak their policies based on exception requests and industry trends. As such, relocation programs should always be seen as works in progress that are updated after a careful review of feedback from transferees, recruiters and hiring managers.
