Easy-to-Use Online Relocation Software
Physicians are trained to use some of the most advanced technologies available—and they expect their employers to as well. But surprisingly, a good chunk of the relocation industry consists of old-school providers that still conduct business manually.
Instead, choose a modern, tech-based relocation provider that gives your new docs access to a cutting-edge, relocation portal—one that lets them plan their move online, from booking suppliers and tracking expenses in real-time to exploring their new city and workplace virtually.
Bonus: because technology is more cost-effective than pushing paper, you’ll reap big savings just by giving your people what they want anyway.
Access to Live Relocation Specialists
Physicians, of all people, appreciate the expertise that specialists bring to the table—and that’s no different when it comes to relocation.
The best relocation solutions complement their technology with the services of professional relocation specialists, which physicians can rely on as much or as little as they like, whether the issue is moving an antique car collection or weighing short-term housing options.
A Network of Prescreened Vendors
Obviously, you want your physicians to enjoy a positive, low-stress relocation experience, so they show up rested and ready to work. One of the best ways to ensure this is to connect them with top-performing movers, realtors, mortgage brokers, etc. that earn high satisfaction ratings.
So, insist on a relocation provider that not only has developed a network of such suppliers, but requires them to maintain good reviews from clientele to preserve their in-network status.
The icing on the cake: some savvy relocation providers negotiate discounts from their vendors in return for a volume of business, so this keeps your costs down, too.
A relocation program with these three characteristics will give your recruiters an immediate hiring edge. And while alleviating your physician staffing shortage will take time and effort, enhancing your relocation benefits is a fast, foolproof way to get started.
