To say that 2020 has been a strange year for companies around the world is, at this point, just about the biggest understatement imaginable. Regardless of how large or small a company is, chances are extremely high that their business models have changed to some degree.
Consider the results of a recent survey from e-commerce payment company FAST, which revealed some very interesting information about what U.S. employees: 35% of American workers said they are considering relocating to a new town or city Out of 600 U.S. adults with remote jobs who were surveyed, 40% of respondents are currently considering a move to a less-populated area 36% of respondents say they are considering relocating because there are many more opportunities to work remotely. In another survey conducted by the Harris Poll on behalf of Zillow, 56% of employed Americans were allowed to work from home this year; 75% of those who worked remotely said they want to continue to do so, and 66% confirmed they would consider moving if they were afforded the opportunity to work from home as often as they want.
What do these numbers mean for Relocation Management Companies (RMCs)? Not much, unless they devise a program that helps address the reality of the way we do business now – and how we will in the future.
We created such a program: The InterLink Relocation Affinity Program, formerly known as SCORE. If you are a corporate Mobility or Human Resources professional whose employees are looking to relocate on their own, we can help. InterLink’s innovative Affinity Program invites companies to become a client and reap the benefits of this no-cost any program.
