Getting your bearings in a new city—let alone a new country—can be overwhelming. Destination services packages include personalized tours, conducted by knowledgeable locals, who coach employees and families on where things are and how to get around.
Help with Housing
While some employers arrange housing for international employees, others rely on destination services specialists to interface between employees and realtors in order to arrange comfortable housing.
Destination services specialists also assist with myriad tasks like getting kids registered at school, opening new bank accounts and connecting with new healthcare providers. Once these are accomplished, employees and families can truly start settling in.
International relocations are expensive investments for employers. Often, when they’re cut short, it’s because the employee’s spouse or partner is unhappy. One way to prevent this is by dedicating targeted resources to the spouse/partner’s acclimation, whether by helping them find work or engage with the community.
After a long, overseas assignment, returning home can be surprisingly challenging. Repatriation services helps departing employees move home and reacclimate in reverse, completing the international relocation cycle.
Is Your Relocation Program Is Up to Par?
If international relocations are part of your company’s growth strategy, a great relocation package—one that includes destination services—should be part of that strategy, too.
After all, employee priorities have shifted. Expectations are higher. For all these reasons, now is a great time to revisit your relocation program and ensure it’s as competitive as possible by current standards.
