How We Continue to Live, Work, Celebrate through Life’s Transitions, By Mark Koepsell
The relocation industry looks vastly different today than it did in 2007. In the past, more than 60 percent of relocating employees were homeowners; today, more than 70 percent of relocating employees are renters. In fact, executives and their families are driving growth in single-family home rentals. With this shift, corporate relocation policies are changing, impacting how HR professionals support employees in transition.
For most people and businesses, transitions mean stress, uncertainty, inefficiency and low productivity. If you or someone you know finds themselves moving to a new city or country for an education, a job or new relationship, relocating is exciting but can certainly be challenging, especially if you’re not familiar with the area. What are the schools like? Which are the safest neighborhoods? What amenities does the city or town have to offer? These are the types of questions you should be asking as you make the decision on where your new home should be.
CORT Destination Services can really help. We can get you acclimated to the area quickly, help you find the right place to live that fits your family’s lifestyle needs and get you settled in fast so you can get on with life.
