An excellent way to make your EAP more comprehensive is to include a small range of relocation services for employees to utilize. With so much of the workforce going remote these days, companies are not as willing to pay to relocate employees, but if the company were to partner with a reliable relocation service provider such as Global Mobility Solutions (GMS), then they could add talent mobility benefits to their EAP.
If employees have relocation benefits at their fingertips, they can move to where their family is most comfortable, at a more affordable price, without the company having to pay for it. This could be a good setup for companies in a remote setting.
There are still benefits of working with a relocation management company for companies not in a remote setting. For starters, relocation companies have a long list of reputable real estate agents who can still assist employees who are looking to move within the state. Also, partnering with an RMC can give you options for moving companies within your EAP, so employees who have to find a new apartment or house have some help moving.
