After investing time and money in recruiting the right people for the right roles, it is important to ensure that this talent settles in the UK as comfortable as possible.
Below are seven common mistakes employees relocating to the area can make which can be avoided.
1. PROPERTY LOCATION
Employees relocating to an unsafe area which impacts their experience in the UK and results on them wishing to return home.
Employees relocating to the UK realising they can’t afford the property they have rented due to all the hidden additional costs.
The relocating employee and their family find a property and pay the required fees before finding out all the nearby schools are full.
Renting a property before finding out although it is a short distance to work there is no direct public transport resulting in long commutes.
Not allowing enough time for the required Governments to check and approve visas could impact the start date of the employee relocating and cost the company thousands of pounds.
6. MAKING NEW FRIENDS
Social isolation can be a huge factor and not being introduced to the right social networks and events can result in those who relocated choosing to return home.
Realising that shipping your furniture from overseas can take months before delivery meaning the employee is stuck in expensive serviced accommodation.
