Top 50 Relocation Questions: Part 2 of 5

Last week, we began a 5 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 11-20.

Top 50 Relocation Questions: Part 1 of 5

Every year, we move thousands of corporate transferees around the globe. Some are homeowners, some are renters, some are domestic and some are international. We handle group moves, family moves, individual moves, temporary moves and even permanent moves. As you can probably imagine, we have fielded just about every transferee question pertaining to relocation there is … even some real stumpers! As we are gearing up for the busy relocation season, it dawned on us that we should be documenting all of the questions we receive and the answers we provide so that we can share it with you, as well as our transferees. If you have ever wished for a desk reference of frequently asked relocation questions so that you can respond to your employees, this five week blog series is for you.

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.

Must Do’s for Communicating Your Relocation Policy

If you were to ask your transferees today what’s included in their relocation policy, do you think they would be able to answer the question? If the answer is yes, then good for you because you are doing something right! If the answer is no, then you are not alone. For a variety of reasons, many transferees don’t have a good grasp on their policy, let alone the relocation process. Most of the time it boils down to communication.

Oh No! It’s a Blizzard and Today is My Moving Date

Snow, cold, and ice add stress to our day to day lives without adding a move on top of it. But life doesn’t stop because the weather gets bad and so it’s important to know how to keep everything under control during a move, especially when that move is on a work timeline. Obviously, in extreme conditions, such as a blizzard, it is very possible that your transferee’s mover will have to postpone pickup and/or delivery. Safety is always priority number one for both employee and vendors working with them. However, winter moves are not uncommon and there are certain things that can be done to make sure they run smoothly.

Transferee Tax Filing Tips

Tax season has arrived. It is both a headache and a relief for some people as they stumble around the rules and regulations of tax laws, exceptions, deductions, and write offs, hoping for a big return. Obviously, it’s important for everybody to take care when filing their taxes but it’s especially important for recently relocated transferees to understand exactly what their work related move entails in terms of filing. The best advice I can offer is to have your transferee speak to a professional tax consultant to ensure everything is filed correctly, but there are several tips, tricks and reminders that I can offer right now.

The Benefits of Relocating Transferees in December

I know that your busy relocation season is usually over the summer. Your transferees’ kids are out of school, so moving them to a new city is easier without having to pull them from the middle of a school year. But companies change and grow all year long.  Business doesn’t stop because of winter weather or holidays – at least not for more than a few days. While your company may not relocate quite as many people over the winter months and the holiday season, that doesn’t mean you don’t have transferees mid-move, looking for a new home in a new city. Luckily, there are several benefits to both relocating and buying a home at the end of the year.

3 Ways to Help a Homesick Transferee

If you have moved a lot of transferees, or have had the experience of working closely with one, you should know that they are going through a major transition. Even the most positive of transferees go through bouts of homesickness, or general emotional discomfort, as a result of rapid changes and unfamiliar territory. Feeling homesick is a perfectly normal and almost always inevitable.

Your Transferee Must Do This One Thing Before Listing Their Home

The home selling process is at the top of your transferee’s list of stressful relocation tasks. There is a lot to consider and a lot to do both before and during the marketing period. Sure, your transferees know to clean and organize the1-thing-your-transferee-must-dohome and work on the curb appeal before the Realtor shows it to potential buyers, but do they know that they should take the time to talk to their local government to check on the accuracy of information on file?
