Technology is not Always the Answer

Our industry has had its share of buzz words and trends that grab the spotlight and dominate the conversations about mobility each year. Some of my all-time favorites include the historical “Single Point of Contact,” “Big Data” and most recently, the industry’s strategic pseudonym, “Talent Mobility.” These days, the topic at hand is “customer experience.”

Why an RFI is More Important Than an RFP

As a seasoned sales professional in this industry, I have worked on my fair share of RFP exercises spanning both small and large opportunities across corporate America. It still amazes me that in this world of emojis, texts and Instagram, it takes a monolithic research assignment to choose a business supplier partner. As much as I respect a diligent research process for purchasing any product or service (for both consumers and B2B), I think the industry has taken its eye off the ball when it comes to focusing on the three main reasons to work with a specific partner – Team, Culture and Achievements. Unlike traditional RFIs that seem to ask a range of general questions, focus on these three key areas.

Why You Really Need to Review Your RMC

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”  That’s how the expression goes.  But, it’s time to evaluate the definition of broken.  I’m willing to bet that there are a number of factors why you have postponed reviewing the job your relocation management company is doing.

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.

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.
