Not all corporate relocations are created equal. Nor should they be! When it comes to offering an employee a particular relocation package, savvy employers will weigh multiple factors, starting with the type of employee and their anticipated tenure with the company. The distance of a move, the transferee’s needs, expected moving costs…these also should factor into the type of relocation benefits offered to employees.
Let’s say you have two employees in the same position, with similar personal situations, who are both relocating with your company. One is relocating from New York to Los Angeles, and the other employee is relocating from New York to London.
A request for proposal (RFP) is one of the most common ways enterprise companies do business, and it’s no different when it comes to finding a relocation management company (RMC) to handle your employee mobility needs. However, the changing landscape of the relocation industry, (due to new legislation and innovation) has made many standard relocation RFP questions outdated.

Recruiting top talent has become an art form. Various types of recruitment software have been developed to simplify the process. These automated digital platforms provide a multitude of functions that can significantly streamline identifying, contacting, and hiring top talent. It makes sense to take advantage of digital hiring tools – as a large segment of the workforce are millennials, who expect that companies use cutting-edge technology. Four effective tools for making talent recruitment easier for your company include the use of the following types of recruiting software:
Recruiting technology trends are disrupting old school practices. Companies that take a modern approach to attracting top talent are experiencing a significant competitive advantage in a competitive market. The recruitment and selection process are often targeting younger, highly-skilled technology candidates. Your recruitment efforts must provide an experience above and beyond what was needed in the past.
Whether you’re a new and growing business or a lean, mean team that requires less manpower, it’s easy to pass off a relocation program as an expensive, time-consuming luxury, like golf.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, you could be hurting your own chances of success, especially when it comes to finding and recruiting new talent, if you aren’t accommodating a recruiting search that goes beyond your local zip codes.
