8 Things Your Transferees are Thankful For

  1. 1. 8 Things Your Transferees are Thankful For
  2. 2. Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful, and your friends and family aren’t the only ones with something to say
  3. 3. Your transferring employees are grateful, too! (And here are 8 reasons why)
  4. 4. 1.) Guidance with how to spend lump sum
  5. 5. The days of relocating with a check and a handshake are long gone - your transferees need guidance! Whether you use sample guides, direct billing, or Relocation Management Software, make sure you help transferees budget their move so they aren’t confused and overwhelmed.
  6. 6. 2.) A centraliz ed location for onboarding documents
  7. 7. Are you flooding your transferees’ inboxes with information? Make sure you have a centralized place to store onboarding and relocation documents. This will help new employees stay organized, feel prepared, and ease their stress in the days leading up to the new job.
  8. 8. 3.) Help wi th housing
  9. 9. Arguably the most stressful part of a relocation, housing should be a main focus as you guide your transferees through their move. Your company can offer homefinding trips, real estate assistance, vetted housing options, and details about cost of living to make sure that there are no surprises.
  10. 10. 4.) Hyperlocal information about their new city
  11. 11. Hyperlocal information is crucial to your relocating employees. The reason this insider information is so valuable is because it can’t be easily uncovered, and has been vetted by people similar to themselves. Telling employees about neighborhoods, schools, city life, public transportation, and information alike, will help them settle into the city and adjust to their new position as quickly as possible.
  12. 12. 5.) Spousal support
  13. 13. Spouses often get forgotten about in a relocation, and the truth is, they are equally as important as your employees. Without their ability to adjust to the new city, the move probably won’t be successful. Make sure to pay attention to spouses and family throughout the relocation in the way of job assistance, resources to create social circles, networking opportunities, and anything else that will help them to get their footing in their new city.
  14. 14. 6.) INFORMATION about tax ramifications
  15. 15. Taxes can be an extremely overwhelming and confusing area for transferees to tackle – in fact, many are unaware of what is and is not tax deductible. Make sure you walk employees through what they need to be keeping track of, which areas of their relocation are exempt from taxes, and what they should be paying attention to as they spend money in regards to their relocation.
  16. 16. 7.) Advice from past transferees
  17. 17. Your past transferees know better than anyone else what the most valuable information is throughout a relocation. Let them tell you what they wish they would have known before moving, what information was useful, and what they felt was the most difficult transition.
  18. 18. 8.) Office-specif ic information
  19. 19. Remember wandering around the office on your first few days confused and lost? Help your new hires avoid this and give them some information beforehand! Let them know about parking, public transportation, office layout, department structure, surrounding lunch spots – anything you wish you knew!
  20. 20. Don’t forget that the support you show your transferees can make or break the success of their relocation
  21. 21. Give them guidance, and in return you will receive happy and satisfied employees!
  22. 22. Happy Thanksgiving From our f amily, to yours!
