Corporate Services


Pre-Decision & Lump Sum Services

 

Pre-Decision Services - WK Relocation can play an integral role in any corporation’s recruiting and on-boarding processes, either in coordination with a relocation management company, or as an extension of a corporation’s human resources function. These services include:

  • Personalized needs assessment and counseling
  • Tours of suitable prospective areas
  • Cost of living analysis and community comparison information
  • Customized relocation information and resources
  • Market analysis of the current home if needed    

If a candidate or employee’s current home is out of WK’s service area we can coordinate with an affiliate partner in the departure location to determine home value, probable marketing time, and any other challenges related to potential departure.

Lump Sum Assistance – Employees often need assistance with relocation information and resources, regardless of their benefits package. WK Real Estate’s largely complimentary relocation services support the employee through the process, which alleviates stress, reduces time spent on relocation activities, increases efficiencies and productivity, and ensures that the employee uses their funds most effectively.  When a company offers an employee a lump sum, WK can help coordinate the move from start to finish.
