Utilizing technology to power your relocation program creates efficiency that can’t be achieved or replicated by people. While it’s important to ensure relocating employees have a person they can reach out to for help throughout their relocation, there’s also an opportunity to automate a number of relocation tasks.
Here’s the good news: you don’t have to sacrifice employee experience to achieve efficiency through technology. Many employees today want access to online, self serve tools to manage their relocations. In fact, they expect it because it’s how they manage nearly every other part of their lives.
For your internal teams administering relocation benefits, technology can save valuable time while providing more insight into your relocation program than ever before. Bringing key processes online, like initiating benefits, signing documents, and distributing information to employees, cuts down on small back and forth tasks that can add up to a large amount of time. Freeing up this time allows your teams to spend time on more valuable tasks. And, by bringing relocations online your team will gain increased visibility into employee progress and relocation spend—enabling them to analyze data faster and make educated decisions about the future of your program.
Scaling Relocation: 2019 and Beyond
If 2019 is the year of growth for your company, make sure your relocation program is ready to meet those growth needs. If you don’t have guidelines or policies in place, consider implementing them before your company starts relocating several employees. Even if you do have a policy, evaluate your current benefits and the cost of administering them.
Scaling doesn’t just mean executing more moves, it means executing them in an efficient, cost-effective fashion. And, finally, don’t underestimate the value technology can add to your program. It not only helps drive efficiency, but it’s become a necessary component for employees executing their move. With these components in place, you can be sure to get 2019 off to a fast start!
