What Does This Mean for Healthcare Corporate Housing Solutions?

Employers seeking healthcare corporate housing solutions should work with a Relocation Management Company (RMC) that has the knowledge and experience to provide a full range of housing options across the entire housing process. RMCs should provide additional helpful programs such as Pre-Decision/Pre-Hire Services with needs-based counseling and mobility assessments, as well as Premier Travel Coordination throughout the entire relocation process.

Resources for transferees should include proprietary relocation technology, area tours, orientations, and virtual destination spotlights. All services should be provided either in-person or virtually, to suit the transferee’s need.
