Important Steps to Take When Your Relocation Services Provider is Acquired

mergers and acquisitions in the reloaction industryAt some point during every corporate manager’s life, there comes a time when a service provider goes through a merger or acquisition – and it can be extremely frustrating.

Driving home from work this evening, it hit me.  The holidays are here. Lights are strung up on the storefronts and the radio was playing the latest version of “Home for the Holidays.” Surely, this is one of my favorite times of year.

It's a Small Relocation WorldRecently, as I was merrily making my way to the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver for the 2011 Global Workforce Symposium (a relocation conference) in mid-October, I found myself sharing a shuttle bus ride with a, shall we say, hippy-esque type of gentleman from Michigan. He sported a mop-top head of white hair, wore orange and red prayer beads around his neck and peered at me through his round, Lennon-like specs. His name was Frank and he was wildly fascinating.
