Relocation is far more complex than I ever thought it would be. Surely, the relocation benefits that HR offers to transferees at different levels (entry-level, new hire, senior management, etc.) are interesting, but lately I’ve been fascinated by how differently transferees across the generations approach relocation. It’s no secret that HR is still learning how to satisfy a multi-generational workforce – and relocation is definitely one piece of that puzzle. I certainly can’t speak for every generation, but as one of two Millennials here I’ve been curious about Gen Y in the workplace and how my peers view relocation opportunities. As it turns out, I agree with Human Resource Executive when they say Millennials are the best candidates for relocation. But, as with anything, relocating this group does come with its challenges.
With the Superbowl right around the corner, it’s time to pay homage to teamwork. It amazes me how well coordinated some football teams are – especially when you think about all of the people that need to work together on game day. You’ve got an offensive coach, defensive coach, special teams coach, assistant coach, head coach and then, of course, the players. Surely, every coach and player has a different goal for the game – and for themselves. Sometimes, these goals can even make or break their careers. So, how is it that this intricate web of leaders and players, all with different needs, can come together for a common purpose on game day?
