The Changed Realities of Corporate Relocation: Part Two

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

The mature population, especially the baby boomers, is increasing everywhere. Workers older than 45 years old are growing more than 18 times the rate of the under-45 population in the 2000s. With a majority of the voting-age population at least 45 years old, public policy should increasingly adapt to the aging population’s needs in this decade. With 92% of the growth among non-whites, primarily Hispanic and Asian, and 50 percent of births now non-white, the population is quickly transitioning away from traditional demographics.

An additional reality that will affect real estate development planning and potential hiring is reduced interstate migration. Studies point out that interstate migration slowed due to rising unemployment and the increase in home foreclosures. This affected college graduates and young adults, who tend to be the most mobile, the most. These groups can be the lifeblood of the labor force and they are most responsive to shifts in the growth industries. This is also indicative of young adults encountering a brutal job market, as many moved back home with their parents after graduating.

States and metropolitan areas that relied too heavily on immigration for growth will need to reanalyze their approach economic development. They’ll need to shape recruitment/retention efforts in order to diversify their economies and create more job opportunities for local residents. The slowdown may actually provide windfall population gains as locals will not be able to move due to a lack of employment options elsewhere. Companies with well thought-out, targeted industry planning, adoption of flexible economic incentives and training fund programs, and focused corporate relocation, could set the stage for growth in the following decade.

Successful Corporate Moving

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

The task list during a corporate move can seem almost infinite. Depending on the type of company, the amount and type of items that will have to be moved may be heavy, hazardous, fragile and even highly technological. Moving these items is not the type of job you want to leave to just any old moving company that you find in the phone book, but to a professional corporate moving service. One of the most common items most corporations will be moving is servers and computer terminals. You want a moving service that will hand these items with care, not just throw them into the back of the truck as if they were boxes of pillows.

Corporate relocation is not just about the transport of company goods, but getting everything in the business back up and running as soon as possible.  For this reason, you want a corporate relocation team that knows what they are doing and will be able to do it in a quick and efficient manner. Every day that a business is offline because of a move is another day where money is not being made. It’s essential to get everything moved as quickly as possible so that business activities can get back to normal. Consulting with a professional corporate relocation service is really the only way to do this, as they can handle the physical move while important company people take care of what really matters.
