Relocation refers to the process of moving from one location to another, usually involving a change in residence or workplace. It can be a complex and challenging task that requires planning, organisation, and coordination from businesses to ensure a smooth transition. Whether moving locally or internationally, it’s important to consider various factors such as cost, logistics, and legal requirements to make your employees relocation successful.
From our approved supplier panel, we will engage a relocation agent to co-ordinate a home search, advise them on the budget and housing requirements. We will liaise with them to ensure the lease is suitable and arrange all necessary up-front payments with HR/assignee. We will manage all relevant issues.
We will arrange for up to three of our freight suppliers to survey the assignee’s belongings, in accordance to the allowances stated in the policy. We will then review all quotes and award the move to the supplier who provides the most suitable quote, further to discussion with you, HR and the assignee.
We will provide advice and support in relation to any assignment arrangements to your assignee’s during the course of the assignment with contact at least quarterly.
We will discuss and agree with you and in line with your global mobility policy any education assistance that may be required, whether in fee paying or non-fee-paying schools. Engage relocation agent to co-ordinate a school search as per agreed criteria.
From the IPM approved panel we will engage a suitably qualified organisation to provide cultural and language training to the assignee and family to agreed levels as detailed in policy. This service may also include a familiarisation visit in the local area.
