How Relocation Providers Deliver Support to Spouses and Partners
Relocation management companies use varied vehicles to deliver benefits to relocating spouses and domestic partners, including:
Destination Services Programs
Destination services programs may include all the forms of assistance listed above. Often, services are provided via third-party specialists. Their representatives work directly with relocating families, guiding the new arrivals through the new area and connecting them to local resources.
Alternatively, many of these tasks are also performed by experienced, service-oriented real estate agents who specialize in corporate relocations.
Advanced Relocation Software
When it comes to supporting spouses and partners, tech-based relocation providers have an edge over traditional, non-tech providers. For starters, they can provide a world of carefully curated information about the new location online, offering a thorough introduction to the area.
In addition, when partners are involved in relocation logistics—and in our experience, that’s usually the case—relocation software makes it easy for both partners to engage in planning.
Every relocation provider worth its salt knows the value of the human touch, which is why it should provide employees and their spouses with access to experienced relocation specialists who can offer personalized guidance and support.
For partners who are managing the million-and-one details related to their family’s move, a kind, knowledgeable voice can make all the difference.
At UrbanBound, we leverage all of these solutions to offer relocating employees and families a highly personalized relocation experience.
Two for the Road
Many times, relocating an employee is a package deal involving their significant other and/or family. With a little thought and care, you can ensure that your relocation benefits keep the whole crew engaged and happy throughout the process.
