HR Professionals’ Best Benefit: Furnished Housing
Feb 15, 2012 12:52 PM
When you’re a human resources professional, one of your top priorities is to take care of your company’s employees. A great way to do this is to make sure that employees deployed for short-term relocations have everything they need to ensure a successful outcome.
While employers may think they’re doing enough just by sending their key players out on assignment in another location, there are some important considerations that can make or break the experience. Perhaps the most crucial consideration is quality of life while away from home for both employees and their families.
To this end, HR directors can help by staying closely involved with planning the details of temporary relocation—including choosing the right place to house their corporate travelers. And for an increasing number of HR professionals, that “right place” means furnished housing.
Temporary furnished apartments offer several key advantages to businesspeople on short-term assignments:
·They allow deployed staff members to live much as they do at home, cooking meals in their own fully stocked kitchen and relaxing in fully furnished surroundings that are both comfortable and sleek
·They offer services that make an employee’s stay much more pleasant than an impersonal hotel, such as 24-hour customer service, laundry and housekeeping service, discounted car service, and full amenities
·They afford employees the ability to have a regular social life, with accommodations that make it easy to invite people over or have family come for a visit—kids can even have their own room
·They encourage “local living,” allowing for a residential experience that is also close to the office
Choosing serviced apartments can pay off in higher employee satisfaction, and thus better retention. By assuring that employees are well taken care of in the right furnished rental, HR directors can help ensure a happier workforce while avoiding potential HR hassles.
