You’ve relocated your head office; now what about your staff?
Premier Property Search takes a look at what happens when you have to relocate your staff, along with their families, and sees how we can help make the moving process as smooth as possible.
Moving house is rated as the second most stressful undertaking in life behind divorce. With this in mind, you are likely to be met with some reservations and objections by your staff to the idea of a move. It inevitably means upheaval for their family, a new home, new schools and possibly a new job for the spouse, as well as an enormous amount of time and heartache in organising the entire process.
There is however, an alternative. There are now property professionals who specialise in helping to relocate employees and their families into new regions. Premier Property Search is just such an organisation.
Premier Property Search is a corporate relocation and home finding company helping people to rent or buy their ideal home and to settle in the UK. They take the headache out of a move for their clients and employers, ensuring that the member of staff does not spend weeks at work distracted by the ins and outs of organising their own move.
Nigel Sellers, Director of Premier Property Search, explains how it works, “We take a full brief of the family’s requirements and then organise an orientation drive to introduce the family to the area. We then make appointments to show the family suitable properties that we have already screened to ensure that they match their requirements. We can advise on schools, doctors, leisure facilities and commuting times. If the new employee comes from abroad, we also advise on the many practical and cultural issues facing a foreign visitor. All of this can be coordinated from a distance, removing the need for the family to travel to the area repeatedly. We do all of the ground work and use our intimate knowledge of the area to make the programme efficient and effective, both in terms of time and money.”
Letting your employees stay focused on work
Once the family has made their decision, Premier Property Search will act on their behalf. They will make the offer, secure the property and negotiate the terms of the tenancy and follow through to exchange and completion. On moving-in day, if renting, Premier Property Search can check the inventory, organise the utilities and provide further information on local facilities and services.
You can imagine the impact that all of this has on the family’s attitude towards a move. It no longer looms as an interminable headache but becomes a new adventure. This in turn means fewer objections from staff to the company’s move and an all round smoother transfer.
Anders Olin a senior company executive was a client of Premier Property Search when his company Ericsson, moved him and his family from America to the South of England. Anders said, “My Company move staff around the world fairly frequently. My wife and young children had spent no time in the UK, so the prospect of organising the move from abroad was daunting. However, the additional assistance we received from Premier Property Search beyond the mere finding and securing the rental property was invaluable.”
