Human resources needs to make several key decisions with relocations, and one of the most important decisions is where the relocating employee will reside. Since this will be the person’s new home, it is important to take the time and necessary steps to accurately assess accommodations.


It’s a decision that impacts the company as well as the employee. Providing accommodations that satisfy her needs enables greater satisfaction and productivity, while making the wrong selection — accommodations located in an undesirable location or with few amenities — can jeopardize the success of the relocation.
