Struggling to find a quality, practical, effective solution for lump sum mobile employees who rent?

This post addresses what PorchLight’s research revealed and what our experience confirms.

It’s true that when mobile employees receive a lump sum relocation package they are cautious about spending the money. Research reveals, it’s not because they don’t see value or need help; it’s because they fear coming out of pocket for their move. They’re embarrassed and disgruntled if their new, exciting job and relocation requires them to spend more money than they’ve been allotted through their relocation benefit. The mobile employee moving with a partner or family doesn’t want to explain why the move sets them back, financially.

This is an important mentality to understand. The lump sum solution employers provide needs to consider mobile employees’ mindset when selecting a service for this population. PorchLight Plan & Pay was designed based on research and behaviors of lump sum mobile employees.
