Help Your Employees During a Transition to a New Place Friday, Dec 27 2019 

Bringing on a new member of the team is exciting. After all the time spent searching for the right candidate to fill the role you need in your company, you’ve finally found the right person for the job. The only issue is they have to move to work for you. How can you best help your employees?

For many, moving is the deal-breaker when it comes to finding the perfect job. Luckily, as a company, there are actions you can take to help make the decision to say “Yes!” to your job offer easier.

Let’s take a look at a few examples of what you can do to help your employees want to make the move to your company, even if that means physically moving across the country.

Help Your Employees Find Housing

When you are working with your new employee on making the move to work with you, one of the best ways to help is finding housing. Since your new employee isn’t from your area, you should give them an idea of where they want to go. Point them to the best neighborhoods to find a home, so they will find living there a dream.

Another great idea is working with an apartment rental facility in your area. If you can’t wait for your employee to find a house and buy it, you could work with a company to house your new employee while they search. Say you live in Connecticut, and you know your new employee is coming from the west coast. It might be a great idea to get in touch with a Connecticut house apartments company to get your new employee a place to stay while they find their home in the area.

Foot the Bill on the Move

Now, we aren’t saying you have to buy your employee a house! What we are saying is you can help with the bills of the move or pay a few months of their temporary housing.

Whether you give them a budget or pay for the moving trucks, giving them a bit of financial help to make the move can really be the difference between yes and no from the employee you want.

Remember, moving from state to state can get really expensive really quickly, especially when you aren’t just moving one person. A rental truck that can move a house is expensive. Grabbing a Budget Truck from Georgia to Kentucky can easily run upwards of $2k, and that can put off a lot of people from wanting to make the move. If you can foot the bill for the movers, you already have a better shot at locking in your new employee.

Invite Them to Dinner

Once your new employee has actually made the move to work with you, the job still isn’t over. Just because you got them there doesn’t mean they will actually stay. That means it’s still up to you to “seal the deal.”

One of the best ways to actually help them want to stay is by doing simple things like asking them out to dinner. Pick a nice restaurant. Show them your favorite spots in town. This will greatly enhance their feelings about the unknown city and help them feel more comfortable.

If your town has a special piece of history you can share with your new hire, you should. Give them reasons to want to stay and enjoy the town, so working for you seems like an opportunity. It really is the small things that help.

Try an Event

This one might sound crazy, but putting together an event for your new hire is a great way to help them feel like part of the team. There are so many different routes you can go with this one, too.

If they are on a small team in the company, you might want to schedule something fun like an escape room to help with team building. If they are part of a larger team, you might want to put together a company cookout or welcome party. This will let your team members get to know the new person and help the new person get a feel from the people they work with.

There are tons of amazing team-building events you can put on for your new employee, just make sure whatever you choose really helps them feel like they are part of the company’s culture.
