Infrastructure and engineering companies often work on large projects which require high quality talent when it comes to leadership, project management and insights from specialized experience across different fields of engineering. This means often looking beyond the local talent pool to locate brilliant talent.
Job offers which require relocations will often come with an agreed relocation assistance package, which can provide financial assistance to new employees. However, truly competitive relocation programs need to consider elements such as spousal assistance, practical support on finding a new home, and even providing advice which can help the new employee find new schools and care homes for their relatives.
Relocating for a new job is an incredibly stressful time, but providing excellent support will not only help significantly strengthen your employee brand, but will also help you retain top talent, providing long-term value after making an initial investment.
