Happy Labor Day!

After a very hectic and busy summer, Labor Day is the relocation industry’s first sign of deceleration. But Labor Day is much more than that of course.XONEX Relocation

Labor Day is a day meant to recognize and celebrate the contributions that employees have made to the organizations they work for and the communities they live in.

Thank you to everyone at XONEX Relocation for their hard work (this summer and every day) and to our valued clients for choosing to partner with us. We hope everyone has a lovely, restful and well-earned holiday.

Happy Labor Day!

Have You Defined Your HR Technology Needs?

I think it’s safe to say we live in a digital world now. Technology is the backbone for so much of business today that every position in every company is touched, in one way or another, by multiple forms of IT.

Employee Retention Pitfalls after Relocation

We’ve talked quite a bit on this blog about payback agreements. Oh, the payback agreement. We both love it and hate it at the same time. Is it a necessary evil? Perhaps. We certainly don’t believe that companies should spend thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars on a relocation if there is a risk that the transferee will resign before the contracted period is up. Putting aside financial concerns for just a moment, however, I think we need to take a closer look at why payback agreements are so prevalent (94% of companies require them) and if there is a better, more effective way to ensure that talent stays on board after a transfer or assignment.
