XONEX Relocation Places in HRO’s 2017 Baker’s Dozen


XONEX Relocation is proud and honored to announce that we placed on HRO’s Baker’s Dozen list for relocation services for 2017 and were ranked 3rd for Quality of Service! This list is ranked solely based on feedback provided by the buyers of relocation services specifically. HRO collects feedback annually through an online survey, which the magazine distributes both directly to buyers through their own mailing lists and indirectly by sending service providers the link to send to their clients. The
survey covers three subcategories including service breadth, deal sizes, and quality. Once collected, response data are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis to score each provider that has a statistically significant sample.

 

At XONEX, our clients are not just clients, they’re partners in this business and we are so grateful to work with so many incredible companies. Without you, we wouldn’t be the company we are today. Thank you so much for your support and your business!

3 Issues HR Will Face Throughout 2017

 

Each new year brings new obstacles in the workplace. It’s inevitable as both the workplace, the people in it and the people who run it shift and change with time. Last year was no picnic for HR and upper level management and 2017 will not be without its issues either. Below are three hurdles HR can expect to run into throughout the coming year as well as solutions to power through.

2014 Worldwide ERC Transfer Volume and Cost Survey

Every year, as you know, we like to take a look at the Worldwide ERC Transfer Volume and Cost Survey to identify relocation industry trends. We always write about some of the important highlights and, this year, we are excited because the numbers are optimistic.  We are also optimistic here at XONEX – we are excited for 2015 – and we feel that these trends are consistent with what we have been seeing here. Even though the survey collects data that is a year old (despite being a forecast) – this year’s data is from 2013 – I think it’s still relevant and interesting. Also, now that we are in 2015, we can see how close the survey actually was to reality (feel free to weigh in on the comments section.   Further, survey respondents include a broad range of respondents representing approximately 23 different industries including retail, manufacturing, insurance and more.

Two Relocation and HR Lessons from the Worldwide ERC Conference

As you know, I recently attended the Worldwide ERC conference in Chicago, IL. I love leaving a conference with my head filled with new experiences, new friends and a whirlwind of new educational information. In addition to my learnings about big data and relocation, which I discussed in my last post, I also took away two recurring lessons that I want to share here. These lessons dominated my dinner table conversation so, clearly, everyone is thinking about it!

Can Big Data Bring Relocation into the Future?

Who out there went to the recent Worlwide ERC Global Workforce Symposium in Chicago? I think it’s one of the best relocation conferences and events every year. We had a great time in the “Windy” city, which has a lot of history, skyscrapers and great places to eat. Fun fact: did you know that the Hilton Chicago (where the conference was held) is a famous landmark that overlooks Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and the Museum Campus? It is also the third-largest hotel in Chicago and has the largest total meeting and event space of any Chicago hotel. The hotel has housed every president of the United States since its opening in 1927!

2014 HR Technology Conference: The Digital Impact on HR

Hello from the 2014 HR Technology Conference in Vegas! I hope you are having a great show.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit in on a discussion about how the digital environment is impacting strategic HR. Check out the video below for my take on how we can use marketing best practices to segment employee populations for more meaningful benefit delivery and career pathing. Agree or disagree? Please share your comments below.
 

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. But, as technology conversations infuse our daily lives, I’ve noticed that the discussions are rarely specific, defined or realistic. What do we really need out of our HR technology?

Three Simple Steps for Relocation Benchmarking

Many of our clients like to hear how their costs, policies and specific benefits compare against a client base of similar size and industry. We are often asked by our clients during our quarterly meetings whether their relocation costs are typical and whether the benefits they are providing in their relocation programs are competitive. Benchmarking is always a smart move. Whether benchmarking against best practices or other companies within your industry, it is important to know and understand how your relocation program stacks up.  Further, it demonstrates to senior management that you have done your due diligence and have made informed recommendations and decisions.

Why Does Succession Planning Go Off the Rails?

This article originally appeared in the March Issue of HR.com’s HR Strategy and Planning Essentials ePublication. 

According to the 13th annual Private Company Governance Survey, administered by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), 90 percent of respondents, which included 841 private companies in the US, believe that a formal succession planning program enhances the effectiveness of a business. However, fewer than 25 percent of those companies actually have a formal plan in place. Moreover, a quarter of survey respondents admit to having no plan what-so-ever and fifty-two percent claim to have an informal succession plan in place.
