As a busy, thriving company, you’ve got a slew of projects happening in various locations across the country. At any given time, you need to send key team members (or perhaps a whole team) to another location to work on a particular project. The expenses involved with moving and housing these employees can be staggering if you house them in hotels, let alone the logistics of food, rental cars, etc. This is just one scenario in which companies like yours can benefit from partnering with corporate housing agencies. It’s a great alternative that simplifies the process of temporary or permanent employee relocation, cutting your costs significantly in the process.
Advantages of working with an agency
A corporate housing agency can make your employee transitions much less stressful and more productive in a number of ways. Here are just a few of the advantages of partnering with an agency to handle this part of your business:
1. Turnkey solutions
Once your employee relocation needs have been established, the agency can handle the details of providing fully-furnished apartments for your team members. No need to spend valuable man-hours scouring the Internet, making reservations at multiple hotels with limited vacancies. With one point of contact, you can book accommodations for as many employees as you need. The agency handles it from there.
2. Better living/working conditions for your team
Extended hotel stays have a tendency of increasing stress, lowering morale and reducing overall productivity. By housing your employees in corporate apartments, you create a “home away from home” environment for them with more comfortable accommodations that allow them to decompress more easily when they are off the clock. In this way, you’re adding value to your team, improving their benefits and enhancing their incentive to do a good job. It’s a win-win situation for all.
3. Flexibility in planning
Furnished corporate apartments can be reserved for a little as 14 days, or as long as several months. Staying in a fully furnished apartment allows your employees to remain focused for longer spans of time, if necessary.
More cost efficient. Corporate housing offers better living conditions for your team at a fraction of the cost of hotels.
Companies that can benefit from corporate housing partnerships
A partnership with a corporate housing agency can be beneficial for a wide range of companies. Here are a few examples:
- Project based companies (for example, construction companies, film production companies)
- Government employees and contractors
- Insurance companies (corporate housing can be an excellent solution for insurance companies who need temporary shelters for displaced clients
- Companies in the process of expansion
- Any other application that requires the temporary relocation of multiple employees
