Happy Memorial Day!

It’s that time a year again! The official kick off to a long-awaited summer season. For those of us in the relocation business, Memorial Day also marks the start of the busiest time of the year.Memorial Day

That’s why we want to take the time to reflect now – because Memorial Day is so much more important than just the start of the
summer season. Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor all of those who have died defending our lives and this great country. And, it’s a time to thank those who are still fighting for the lives we live every day.

Thank you to all of our veterans, active and inactive, old and new, for all that you have done and all that you still do.

Happy Memorial Day!

Consequently, unexpected relocation expenses start to spring up frequently.

Solutions for Managing Temporary Living in Remote Areas

We manage a wide variety of relocation programs for firms in a wide variety of industries. Sometimes, we are charged with moving employees to very remote locations with few relocation resources.

One of the most common issues we deal with (as well as a frequently asked question) is finding adequate and budget-friendly temporary living in remote areas with few options and high prices. So, how do we solve the temporary living problem?

How to Combine Relocation Policies after a Merger

When two companies merge, human resources is immediately tasked with ensuring that there is one benefit plan for all employees. In many cases, employees will just inherit the benefit plans from the acquiring company.  When it comes to relocation, however, this can be tricky as transferees can be in process while the ink is still drying on the acquisition deal.
