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!

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?

Without a doubt, the world is abuzz with news about technology. Whether it’s a discussion over Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp, or Salesforce’s latest plugin, it’s hard to escape the technology conversation – and that’s a good thing!

MyXONEX Mobile Application for Relocating Employees Launches Today!

Mobile App for Relocating EmployeesHey everyone! Do you remember a while back when we said we wouldn’t release an app until we were sure we had something that our transferees could really use? Well, today is that day. I’m thrilled to announce that today we are officially launching MyXONEX©, a free mobile application that makes relocation easier for transferring employees and their families. The app, which is now available for iOS and Android users, offers an intuitive and friendly interface that features tools designed to support transferees throughout the entire relocation process.

We are always looking for new ways to make relocation less stressful for transferees and their families. We know that you are, too. MyXONEX is designed to be both fun and functional for your employees. Whether they are submitting expenses electronically, keeping track of moving boxes or finding restaurants in their new hometown, they will now have everything they need to manage their relocation while on the go.

How to Project Relocation Costs More Efficiently

Relocation BudgetWith relocation busy season around the corner, relocation managers are probably dusting off their policies and taking a good look at relocation budgets. But, how realistic are those budgets? One of the biggest challenges that human resources and procurement managers face is the difficulty of designing a proper relocation budget and then sticking to it when the rubber hits the road. That’s why clear cost projections are the linchpins that connect cost containment with adequate relocation benefit delivery. In order to ensure clear projections, its critical to get the most accurate view of anticipated costs right out the gate, preferably before an offer has been extended to the potential transferee. 

Is New Relocation Technology Friend or Foe?

It seems like new technology is showing up everywhere these days and the relocation industry is no exception.  An increasing number of relocation companies are embracing new technologies as a way to provide more services at a lower cost to clients – and relocation managers should take full advantage of the boom. These systems can free up time formerly spent dealing with tracking data, manual reporting, cost management, expense tracking and so on.
