How to Best Manage Gen Z Relocations
Good news: Gen Z employees are eager to accept jobs that involve relocating to a new city or country! Bad news: most companies don’t have a relocation program in place that will offer Gen Z’s ideal balance of flexibility and support.
For example, many companies err by throwing a lump sum of money at entry-level hires, leaving them to figure out their move alone. While Gen Zers are tech-savvy, they’re also tech-dependent—they want online resources and support-on-demand.
In addition, they want to connect with their future coworkers in advance of their move. Specifically, they want to pick their brains in terms of where to live and how to commute, not to mention the best gyms, restaurants, etc.
In this regard, tech-based relocation management companies like UrbanBound are much better positioned to please Gen Z than traditional, consultant-driven RMCs.
In fact, UrbanBound’s software allows employees to plan their move online—from managing their budget, to booking movers and other suppliers, to mining a treasure trove of relevant information, including Co-Worker Insights. At the same time, they’re provided with a personal relocation consultant who will offer just as much--or as little--support as they’d like. In short, it gives Gen Zers the resources they need to move successfully—and the flexibility to do it their way.
What Gen Z Wants: The Five Fs
In short, when it comes to wooing Gen Z, keep the five Fs in mind: Fit (between candidate and company), Family, Fun, Fortune, and Freedom (or flexibility). These are essential to winning over this young, dynamic generation of workers.
