1. Not Educating The Employee About Their New City
People become comfortable with the surroundings they’re used to and the lives they’ve created for themselves.
Employees may experience mild culture shock when moving to a new city, accompanied by an overwhelming burden to rebuild their safe home environment once again. Seemingly low priority considerations, such as proximity to grocery stores or parking near home, are often overlooked prior to a move, but play a critical role in helping an employee settle in smoothly.
For example, if an employee has pets or kids, it’s important to provide relevant information about vets and schools. Ensuring an employee is well acquainted with their new location will help them stay grounded and remain focused on the job at hand, increasing their job productivity and overall well-being.
