Relocating any number of your employees to a new city is never easy. There are a lot of logistics and practicalities that need to be taken into consideration. The cost of moving, figuring out a feasible mode of transportation, providing appropriate living accommodations in the new location, and guaranteeing the welfare of your employees’ family members are all important factors when it comes to asking them to uproot their entire lives. Many small and large corporations have the financial means and resources to provide their employees who are moving to Toronto on a short or long-term basis stunning corporate housing options to help them easily adapt to their new surroundings. Eliminate the majority of the stress and anxiety that relocating to Toronto can induce by giving your employees a new place to call home. Here are a few tips you can utilize to help make the relocation a little more appealing to your employees.
Also known as “Look & Sees”, you should take the extra step to help your employees get settled in after moving to Toronto, especially if they don’t know anyone and aren’t familiar with their surroundings. You can seek out help from a relocation service, such as MAC Relocation Solutions, to provide City of Toronto neighbourhood orientations so your employees can find schools and/or daycares within close proximity to their residences. At MAC Relocation, we also offer assistance with getting set up with a social insurance number (SIN) and OHIP card.
Rental Assistance (Temporary Housing Options)
It shouldn’t be left up to your employees to find a place to live in their new surroundings, especially if it wasn’t their idea to move there in the first place. To make the relocation process easier and more enticing, make sure you plan ahead by securing a reliable and safe living situation for your employees, such as a fully furnished apartment. Some of them might be moving out on their own for the first time, or if it’s a temporary living situation, they might be leaving their families behind for the time being. This is an excellent way to make the transition a little less stressful, allowing them to focus more on the work they’re being sent to do rather than having to search for a place to live. When you work with MAC Furnished Residence’s Inc., your employees can have peace of mind knowing they are dealing with licensed real estate salespeople and a licensed real estate broker.
Easy Travel Management
Organizing the move on behalf of your employees gives them a greater opportunity and incentive to focus their time and attention more on what matters most: the work-related tasks for which they’re responsible. This way, they won’t be preoccupied with having to find their own empty or furnished apartments in a new city where they’re unfamiliar with the local neighbourhoods. It’s important to do your due diligence as the employer and research the areas where you’ll be sending your employees to live so that you can guarantee their safety when moving to Toronto as much as possible.
Help with the Big Move
Another way you can ease the transition involved in moving to a new city for your employees is by absorbing as much of the costs as possible including airfare and corporate housing rent. Consider the cost of living in the city that your employees are being relocated to and calculate the costs based on that. It’s also a good idea to take care of move management, household moves, destination services, orientations, and “Looks & Sees”.
