3 Ways to Speed up the Relocation Process
Besides improving their relocation offering, most healthcare organizations want to get their incoming new hires on board as quickly as possible. The good news is, by strategically tweaking their relocation benefits, they can achieve just that:
1. Take a Flexible Approach
The more dos and don’ts you attach to your relocation benefits, the harder you make it for physicians to execute their move quickly and within budget. Allow them to spend their allowance however their move demands, and the process will go much faster.
2. Offer Generous House-hunting Trips
Finding a new place to live is never easy, but given the current fierce housing market, it’s especially tough. Giving your new hires the time that they need to lock in this most important piece of the puzzle will accelerate their move in the long run.
3. Provide First-Class Short-term Housing
After your new physicians find housing, closings still take time. Putting a solid short-term housing arrangement in place can get them seeing patients more quickly. This can be as simple as forging an agreement with a near-by extended day hotel.
