The relocation process can create substantial distraction and a bit of disorder in terms of an employee’s focus. The reduction in employee productivity is likely to be noteable during corporate relocation. Although difficult to measure, is significant to any business. Therefore, several considerations should be made by from the company’s perspective as an effort to lessen this:
Leave sufficient planning time
It is unfortunately unavoidable sometimes due to circumstance that deadlines are notoriously tight when it comes to corporate relocation. It is important to ensure every necessary element of moving is completed within a given timeframe. Insufficient time given to employees to consider or plan their international relocation. Alongside the physical move can result in increased stress levels for the employee and therefore a reduction in productivity.
Families are a critical element of consideration in the process of corporate relocation.
Important information needs to be explained, not only in good time, but also to the appropriate people. The candidate, together with the employer, should be informed of all relevant details to ensure that there is no threat of critical information getting lost.
As an employer, it is key that you give assistance where necessary regarding the issues surrounding international relocation.
The need to advise employees on their home requirements and assistance with home purchase is advised. Without this the employee may become hesitant to take part in the relocation.
However, the relevant documentation involved in a move, the moving surveys, packing and necessary storage you can leave to Galleon International! We keep both company and employer abreast of all the necessary information.
Consider Flexible Working Arrangements
Allowing the employee to work remotely when needed during relocation can offer huge benefits to productivity while your employee gets settled. You avoid the potential danger of an individual falling behind and the demand of their workload can be reduced hugely.
