Corporate Relocation is a necessary part of the growth of many companies. When someone works well at one field, and you want to revitalize another state’s department, inject someone who is a real ground shaker. This is one of the reasons why corporate relocation is so popular right now. But the real question is how to prepare for corporate relocation? It’s not an exact science, but we have some tips we’ve picked up from various corporations that might help you with your transition.
As an Individual
Prepare your Belongings – The most important step you can do is prepare your belongings. I don’t mean regarding packing because you should already be packed but learn about what you will need to get rid of and what you will need to keep. If you are moving cross country, they need to be properly prepared. If you have a large computer, you will want to isolate the parts, so they won’t move too much in transit. Things of that nature.
Do your Research – When you are moving to a new area, there is a whole world you haven’t even explored yet. Do your best to do so before you get there. Our recommendation is to find a restaurant or a store within walking distance to your new address and go there 2-3 times in your first week of living there. When you personalize something, it helps ground you in that new area.
Settle your belongings – As soon as you get in, set up camp. The faster you become comfortable in an area, the quicker you can adapt and be prepared for your job. If you are unsettled in life, it will affect your work, and you are all hoping to make it work in your new location.
As a Corporation
Work with the Mover – The first thing you need to do is work with your mover. If you can create a positive, personal experience, it makes the transition much smoother for the employee. Getting high-quality service, like the kind that Top Notch employs, will make their move enjoyable.
Know the Legal Stipulations –The new worker is living in some place they’ve never been to before. While it is up to them to do their homework, have an HR rep help out as much as possible. Provide knowledge of local laws, pet laws, smoking laws, whatever will help your employee transition.
Set up connections – Similar to finding local areas, see if there are people or activities in the area that might help the person out. Begin connecting the employee to other employees in that office. The more you can do to help out their transition, the better.
