Clean Moves: Safety Standards & Sanitary Relocation Practices

Household Goods, COVID-19, Moving Services

COVID19 has rapidly altered our immediate concerns on mobility, employment and workplace safety.

Relocation activity is expected to see a domestic upsurge and an international decline in the post-COVID19 world as businesses deploy new Talent Mobility standards and focus on the new Talent-Location Paradigm. These relocations will come with an enhanced eye towards Health & Safety.

With this transformation, HR leaders will need to look at relocation best practices as they consider movement of their talent over the next 18-24 months.

What can HR leaders expect as the new standards of Clean Moves for relocating employees and their families?
