Employee Relocation

Employee Relocation is a very Dirty Word! For so many people, the words employee relocation is such a dirty word- soap please. But in reality, we have a tendency to look at all the negatives to this big move from state to state.

I remember when my friend decided to move for work, she was faced with her husband saying how he loves his job and didn’t want to leave, the kids cried about how much they love their school and how they will miss their friends, and her siblings constantly reminded her that her parents weren’t getting any younger.

With so many objections, how could she be excited about the move? One thing was for sure, employee relocation was not debatable.

As people, we put these barriers we on ourselves. Not because we like the stress {unless you’re a weirdo} but because moving from state to state is a scary and tedious process. We are moving out of our comfort levels to a place of the unknown and the unknown can be intimidating.

Yes, you have read that correctly. Without taking risks, we will never know what’s on the other side. We become a product of our environment. We get attached to our lives, our friends, family- the mom and pop bakery we frequent every morning on the way to work. That’s all good and dandy, but we have to just let go and embrace our new paths.

To help you get started, here are my top 3 tips for your employee relocation journey.

Employee Relocation Tip #1: Ask For Help. With technology and social
Media being the dominating factor in most of our lives, don’t be afraid to reach out to people in your new area. You will be surprised as to how many people are willing to help the new guy.

Employee Relocation Tip #2: Set a Budget. Moving company, auto transport company, plane tickets, rental car, hotel fare, meals… All these can add up very quickly. You don’t want to go overboard thus adding another element if stress. Find out from your job exactly how much they will reimburse you for and what’s reimbursable. Companies vary.

Employee Relocation Tip #3: Use a Credit Card. Whenever possible, it’s best to use a credit card. You can easily keep track of what you spent and how much money is left in your budget. Also, by using a credit card, you have access to the receipts you’ll likely need to turn into your employer to reimburse your moving expenses.

Now that you know my top three employee relocation tips, you are on your way to a stress-less move.
