Top 50 Relocation Questions: Part 3 of 5

Welcome to week three of our five week series to go over the 50 most common questions we receive from transferees and the answers that we provide on a regular basis. This week, as promised, it’s time to go over questions 21-30.

Meet Rick Calanni

It is with great pleasure that I introduce the newest member to the XONEX family, Rick Calanni. Meet RickRick brings a lot of knowledge and experience to our team and while we have all been enjoying getting to know him, I thought it was time that you all get to know him as well!

What Does Your Payback Agreement Look Like?

Before I get into anything, I think it’s important to note that payback agreements vary widely. Every company approaches the payback agreement differently and that can be confusing for HR, senior management and transferees alike.

Expert Interview: Temporary Corporate Housing

Everybody within the relocation industry knows that temporary corporate housing plays a major role in transferee Kelly Reganexperience. Finding a new home at destination isn’t always a cake walk and for many, temporary housing is a vital benefit. A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of picking the brain of Kelly Regan, Executive VP of GO Furnished Housing. It’s so valuable to gain insight from our trusted vendor network here at XONEX and I knew that her experience in the corporate housing world would be valuable to not only those on the RMC side, but also those of you in HR and procurement.

Last Minute Moves are Relocation Budget Killers

In our most recent relocation whitepaper, discussed the nature of last minute relocations and the impact it has had on relocation budgets, as well as the transferee’s overall relocation experience. For one reason or another, there seems to be a growing trend towards last minute hires. As such, there were many cases where transferees were initiated in the same week as their start date, leaving very little time to adequately counsel the transferee and effectively set up relocation benefits.

Tips for Managing Summer Relocation Stress

It’s that time of year again – you know, August. It’s the month when we can see the light at the end of the tunnel of the busy season. It’s also the month when stress is high from all the moving volume. Of course, we love what we do. But, by August, a moment to catch our breath is a welcome treat. 

Temporary Living Must-Do’s

We’ve talked a lot about the real estate market lately and it’s no secret that rental prices are skyrocketing. Given this trend, and my own experience in temporary living, I thought it was due time for a post about what transferees (and companies) should know about temporary living.

Top 5 Issues HR Will Face During the Busy Relocation Season

Last week, Paige posted about how the busy relocation season has arrived. She went over the fact that the household goods aspect of your transferees’ moves will definitely pose a challenge this year due to an increase in volume and decrease in actual trucks and drivers. For your employees, the household goods moving process is, without a doubt, the most stressful piece of the relocation puzzle (well, maybe after selling the home). This week, I want to talk about some of the stresses that HR will encounter as the summer season really takes off.

The Rise of the Hybrid Lump Sum Relocation Policy

Lump sums are all the rage. And, they will continue to be a hot ticket item. Yep, we said it. While we are not the lump sum’s greatest fan, we wholly accept that many employers will be working to combine as many relocation services as possible into a lump sum component.  Predictability is, understandably, very important for managing budgets. But, on the other hand, predictability does not automatically translate into cost savings.  In fact, it could do just the opposite.

Relocation Policies Across the Generations

I’ve written about Millennials and menu programs in the past and, as a team, we have certainly covered the generations in our EBooks. But, the discussion is important. As we all know, the makeup of the average assignee/transferee pool continues to change with the progression of the Millennials into the ranks and the exit of the Baby Boomers. For the first time ever, we have four generations working together – and that’s diversity that people rarely think about in the grand scheme of the diversity conversation.
