1. Stop Worrying about Moving Expenses
Give your new hire a flat relocation allowance, and they’ll need to devote their time to tracking expenses and submitting receipts - not to mention stress about exceeding their budget. But there’s a way to make this easier - give them a software program that tallies their expenses automatically in real-time.
Give them payments that are transferred directly from the employee’s relocation fund to an in-network vendor’s account, eliminating reimbursement altogether. And when reimbursements are required, receipts can easily be uploaded and processed online. Less red tape = more quality work time.
2. Stop Agonizing Over Vendor Selection
Choosing a reputable mover is no small feat - and neither is requesting and comparing quotations. It takes up a lot of valuable head space. One of the best ways hospitals can help? Give new hires access to a pre-screened network of quality movers and allow employees to request quotations electronically - then compare and book their choice online.
The same applies to selecting top realtors, allowing new hires to get right down to the business of buying and/or selling a house or finding a great rental. The sooner housing issues are settled, the better everyone sleeps - and that translates to more productive workdays.
3. Acclimate More Quickly to Your Area
Getting comfortable in a new city is a process. While most people perform their own online research before they come out to interview, the internet is a vast, uncharted place - and there’s no guarantee what they will find.
Smart hospitals can help their new employees acclimate faster by providing useful, validated information up front, by using a great relocation company. Housing info, neighborhoods, schools, attractions - it’s all right there, so employees start learning their way around, even before they arrive.
The Goal: Free Those Big Brains up to Focus on Patients!
Relocation involves a million details, even for smart, highly-organized healthcare professionals. But why require them to waste valuable brainpower on such small details during their first critical weeks on the job—when they can focus on patient care instead?
Offering relocation services to employees is a surefire way to help your new hires get in-the-swing faster, which translates to better patient care.
