Relocation management companies are known for making the business of transferring company employees to new locations easy. That’s what they do, and they do it well – some better than others. They accomplish this by deploying their considerable resources to tackle the logistical nightmare that picking up residence and putting it down elsewhere entails, giving corporate employees in the process of being transferred freedom from having to make their own arrangements.
They also ensure the smooth transition of workplace duties with minimal disruption of work productivity so that an employee can literally pick up work where they left off, in new surroundings, with all of the tools necessary to ensure continuity of business. But if all relocation management companies do virtually the same thing, how can you tell if you’re connecting with an exemplary organization or a run-of-the-mill, average one?
One of the things that you don’t see offered by every relocation management companies is complete transparency in their procedures. There’s a difference between being told what’s going to happen and being able to check in on the progress at any time. With high caliber relocation management companies, you’ll have access to reports throughout the process of arranging and executing relocation that tell you the following:
- Where funding of relocation resources has been allocated
- How much funding has been spent and on what resources
- The current status of documentation critical to relocation
- The names and identities of all service suppliers involved in the relocation
