Do You Have the Right Internal Relocation Team?

Do you have the right internal relocation team?Last week we released a free whitepaper on how to survive the transition between relocation providers. Of course, the first step for any successful transition is to set up a reliable team of professionals that will get the job done, soup to nuts. But, I would argue that every relocation manager should have an internal support team at the ready, regardless of the current state of the relocation program. This way, should any changes be needed, all of the functions impacted by relocation – from payroll to IT – will be available to provide insight and make informed decisions about the program.

Seven Steps to Survive the Transition Between Relocation Providers (Free Whitepaper)

Earlier this year, we wrote a whitepaper on the common reasons why companies decide to evaluate their relocation programs – and their relocation partners. We were seeing a flurry of proposal activity from a variety of different sectors, which led us to believe that the companies, previously steadfast on service partnership, were now looking for a better option. Given economic fluctuations, turmoil abroad, cost-cutting efforts and a need for greater service, this was understandable. What started as a due diligence exercise, has led many of these companies to draw anchor and change course.

Is Your Recruiter Relocation Savvy?

Several months ago, I wrote a blog post on the importance of teamwork when it comes to relocating new hires. As a follow up to that post, today I want to talk a little about recruiters and what they should know about relocation to bring their A-game to the table.

Ready, Set…Group Move!

Google announced last week that the company is moving 3,000 Motorola Mobility jobs to Chicago. Needless to say, the chatter around the office that day was a collective “Wow! That’s a whole lotta moves!” I don’t know about you, but if I was the HR manager in charge of a move this big I might be a little…excited? Er…panicked. A group move program has special needs that can differ greatly from traditional relocation requirements and Google is going to need to pull together a top-notch team of experts both internally and externally.
