Two Types of Relocation Consultants
Just as there are two types of relocation management companies—traditional, manually-based providers and modern, tech-based providers—there are two types of relocation consultants.
Old-school relocation consultants communicate with employees largely by phone and email, while modern consultants also communicate with employees digitally, through their relocation software. The result: less paperwork, less back-and-forth, and more information placed right at employees’ fingertips.
While both types of relocation consultants improve the employees’ relocation experience, modern, tech-based consultants work the way today’s professionals prefer to work: digitally and at their own pace.
Okay, What’s It Mean to You?
Whether you currently leverage the services of relocation consultants or offer a straight lump-sum allowance, now’s a great time to reevaluate your employee relocation experience.
If you have a relocation provider that offers the option of conducting employee surveys, ensure you’re taking full advantage of them. If not, start conducting surveys of your own.
If most of your employees are happy with how their relocations unfolded, you know you’re on the right track.
But if many employees are critical of your relocation process, it’s time to dig deep and find out where your program falls short. Once you know that, you can start figuring out how to do better. This may include adding relocation consultants' services or even upgrading to a tech-based relocation solution.
2023 is the year of improving employee experience, including their relocations. If you’re looking for ways to make that happen, use us as a resource!
