Frequently Asked Questions
Is Essential Engagement Services a relocation service?
-No, while our products are designed to address the everyday emotional pain points that often come with relocation, we do not orchestrate relocations. Instead we offer care packages and coaching services for companies to provide to relocating employees to help them in the midst of relocation as well as in the 12 months afterwards as they settle in to their new location. Change is hard. Add in a family (for 41% of relocating employees) and if the spouse and kids are unhappy, the employee’s level of distraction will skyrocket. By providing the employee and their family the means to enable a smoother emotional transition, companies strengthen their new hire engagement. Our products and services serve as a guide to do just that, and in a budget-friendly way that requires almost no time to implement. We send each new hire a welcome kit, which includes books, journals, and 12 month access to MyEssentialGuide.com to provide practical advice and guidance as they move and settle in.
We work with a relocation service, why would we need Essential Engagement Services?
-Our services complement those of a relocation service, picking up where traditional corporate relocation services leave off by helping the employee and their family with advice and resources for the emotional aspects of the transition. Our books, website, and kid-friendly resources are designed to provide practical advice and guidance throughout each stage of the move and settling in. Simply put, our care packages serve to enhance new employee moves and onboarding by helping them in the often overlooked areas of the mental and emotional parts of relocating.
What exactly is in a care package?
-Care packages consist of books and guided journals/workbooks specific to each member of the family (kids, pre-teens, teens, parents, adults without kids). Additionally, each care package contains a unique password and login for 12 months access to MyEssentialGuide.com, containing advice, guidance, and resources for each step of the move as well as an extensive video content library with advice in a variety of topic areas. All materials are branded as a gift from the hiring company.
Is your product specific to any city or geographic area?
-No, our care packages can be used for moves to any city: domestic or international. Our care packages focus on the mental and emotional aspects of moving with advice and support that is agnostic to geography. Change is challenging and the practical parts of getting through change in a healthy way do not vary dramatically by city. However, for international moves, we do add in international specific guidance and resources as well to further highlight the best ways to tackle the unique challenges faced by ex-pats while relocating.
Are the care packages for international moves as well?
-While our product is not specific to a geography, we do have resources that are focused on international moves and can create a customized care package for your employees who are relocating outside of their current country. At this time, all our care packages are available only in English.
