Relocating your employees to the Netherlands is a complex and diligent process. There is a wide array of things that’ll need to get sorted, think about logistics of goods, settling-in and of course the actual move itself. Relocating your employees is an investment, so you want to make sure you keep everything as cost effective as possible. We share 4 tips on how to reduce relocation costs!
1. Offer an attractive relocation program
Before you start looking into potentially relocating employees, you should consider the relocation program you’re offering. What kind of home finding solutions do you provide, are you offering them Dutch language training after they’ve settled in? Ultimately, you don’t want to invest in employees to later find out that they’re pulling out because of your outdated relocation policy.
Ask yourself if it’s competitive enough in comparison to your competitors. Would you want to move under your own relocation program? If the answer is no, it’s time to update your policy.
2. Keep your policy up to date
Once you’ve updated your policy, it’s important to keep it up to date. There might be certain trends that emerge in the relocation field that you don’t want to miss out on. After all, it’s essential to keep your relocation program attractive for your current and future employees.
3. Reduce relocation costs with caps
Relocation can often lead to unforeseen costs. It’s also common to compensate for costs of living adjustments and occuring exceptions. In order to keep relocation costs at bay it’s a good idea to introduce caps. In that way employees feel supported, while your costs don’t spiral out of control. Sounds like a win-win, right?
