Short guide to employee relocation services

Employee relocation services are usually a range of internal transfers within a company. They can be national, local or international, depending on the transfer. In some cases, employee relocation can be to another company, if the company is a sister computer or works in conjunction with the company you're already working for.

Employee relocation services and costs

Usually, employee relocation services consist of moving an employee and their family to another position either regionally, nationally or internationally. For businesses, the cost of relocating an employee can be quite hefty, especially if the relocation is aboard.

However, there are some benefits for business to use employee relocation services. If the relocation is to another sister company it can develop stronger ties, for example. Or, if the relocation is international, there are opportunities for diplomatic relationships to develop with other country, for example you're thinking of expanding internationally.

Relocation plan and package

Many workers may be against the move at first, so it's important to put together an attractive employee relocation service package and benefit plan. Ideally, the move should be easy for the employee to make and offer more benefits than their current employment - a higher pay, better positions within the company, bonuses, paid accommodation and financial costs towards any family obligations (e.g. schooling children in another country) are some of the most popular benefits placed in employee relocation packages.

Partner companies

If you're planning on frequently using employee relocation services you'll need to find a way to help your employees in the long-run and save costs on your part. Most corporations have partner companies or create connections with other companies when they plan to move employers there; that means moving costs, getting a mortgage or helping your employer's family find alternative work becomes easier. By using partner companies in your chosen relocation area you'll cut costs because you won't have to use companies in the UK, or your region, and can co-ordinate the move from both locations.

Employee relocation programmes and services

Although you can easily put together your own employee relocation services sector in a company, asking for advice from companies that strictly deal in HR and employee relocation is always a good idea, especially if this is a new part of your company. If you're not ready to tackle the process of handling employee relocation alone, you can go to sites such as HR.com and seek out professional employee relocation services that handle all the finer details for you.
