Talent Attraction cases are VERY different. The relocation support should be an extension of the executive search process.
Done well, the relocation support will REINFORCE the Candidate’s decision to take the new position.
Done badly, it will UNDERMINE that decision!
These cases require special, VIP-level treatment - that’s TAILORED, targeted & personal.
It starts with the relocation firm’s first conversation with the Candidate & Spouse, which should be conducted EARLY-ON in the process.
In fact, many of our clients make this an integral part of assessing the shortlisted Candidates.
This is because the relocation professionals can then feed information into the decision-making process.
This is accomplished by carrying out an effective NEEDS ASSESSMENT.
Done right, this is an ideal opportunity for the employer to discover any LINGERING DOUBTS – such as any reservations a Spouse may have.
In this way, any issues can be addressed EARLY ON, & factored into any decisions going forward.
Here are some of the main relocation support services that typically come into play:
EARLY NEEDS ASSESSMENT
This is an informal, relaxed conversation, facilitated by an experienced relocation professional.
It has the objective of discovering important facts & the extent of relocation support services that might be needed.
What aspects of the relocation would be of concern to the Candidate & Spouse?
For example, housing costs, schools, childcare, medical matters, etc.
And what about at the departure end? Do they have a property that will need selling or renting out there – or a lease that would need terminating?
What about any family they’d be leaving behind? Are there eldercare issues to be considered?
AREA ORIENTATION & “LOOK SEE” TRIP
This is an organized trip to the destination area so the Candidate & Spouse can get a taste of what living there will be like.
And it helps them choose the area they want to live in.
Done right, it will ideally REINFORCE the decision to accept the position.
The relocation firm should arrange an escorted tour of shortlisted areas and sample homes, schools etc. conducted by an experienced, professional guide.
HOME FINDING ASSISTANCE
This is a comprehensive service to help them FIND & SECURE a rental home, on time & within budget, in their chosen search area.
This service helps them find the best schools for their children, & guides them through the application process.
It can also cover nursery schools & childcare arrangements.
This is general assistance TAILORED to their needs – for example, opening bank accounts, council tax registration, hooking up utilities, broadband, social security, medical service, & all the numerous tasks associated with settling into life in a new country.
This is just a sample of the typical relocation services that Saunders 1865 – The VIP Relocation Company – offers to support executive search projects.
Relocation support for executive searches & the attraction of the best global talent, is SPECIALIZED relocation work that should be carried out by a SPECIALIST firm.
The number 1 error employers make, of simply assigning them to the Employer’s standard relocation track, should be avoided.
That approach so often ends up SPOILING all the good work that has been done by the TALENT ATTRACTION team.
Saunders 1865 – The VIP Relocation Company – has specialized in this work for more than 25 years.
