Cooperatives often have difficulty finding local candidates with the skills and experience necessary to help their team grow and develop. Without a specialized local talent pool, recruitment efforts are focused outside of their communities, increasing the number of co-ops who find themselves incorporating relocation assistance into their offer package. Cooperative.com has partnered with Interstate Relocation Services - an award winning team recognized for its attention to detail and outstanding service. Together, we are able to help guide co-ops through the recruiting process and direct them through the intricacies of corporate relocation.
Imagine this, a potential candidate arrives in town for an interview and takes a quick drive around the area, with little or no information, making assumptions that are not always positive based on what they see and don't see. Instead, a call to Interstate prior to the interview/preview trip is recommended so that an Interstate counselor can contact the candidate, perform a needs assessment and set up an area tour or provide information on areas that meet the candidate's parameters for price range, types of housing, etc. This can result in a more positive experience for the transferee and allows them to share their concerns with the relocation counselor about finding the right community and housing for themselves and their families as well selling their current home and relocating their household. This also allows your team to focus on their area of expertise and on the position and candidates while the Interstate team focuses on relocation issues.
Interstate offers your cooperative a
full menu of relocation services that allow you to select only those services that fit both your candidate's and your co-op's specific needs, from helping the candidate sell their current home to moving their household goods, finding a new home plus temporary housing if needed, and processing the approved relocation expenses according to the most current IRS requirements. Interstate Relocation Services can help you develop a relocation policy or provide specific services - just
contact Interstate with any questions.
