Collaboration Early On With An Immigration Lawyer, Will Smooth The Process For International New Hires!
It is the way of the blue chip corporate community to utilize lawyers who specialize in the immigration processing when completing the documentation required for executives who are relocating to a new destination city in Canada. In support of the formal arrival, and issuance of the work permit, (and in some cases the study permit for those who have children), destination services are an integral part of the successful settling in process.
When the international transferee arrives at the airport and proceeds to immigration to obtain their work permit, there is a list of “other” services they require in order to settle comfortably into their new city. Often an orientation tour has already taken place during the interview stage, so the executive and family are vaguely familiar with the city. They may even have furnished temporary accommodation to move into. The next steps are critical to the success of the relocation which is why immigration lawyers are turning to destination service providers to smooth the process for the families.
We start with planning the movement of household goods to be sure they arrive in a timely manner so as not to keep the family in temporary accommodation any longer than necessary. Next, we are at the airport to meet and greet the family taking them to their furnished temporary accommodation where a dinner and breakfast meals are waiting in the fridge. Planning ahead is critical to smooth the process.
Before an executive can begin work they must of course have a Social Insurance Number, bank account, and health care card or registration. While many end up tackling these appointments on their own, support is always very much appreciated reducing the time required to complete the process as well as the need to return with appropriate documentation.
When it comes to registering the children in school it is important to have all the required documentation with you to smooth the process. Just knowing where to go and having the appointment set eases the stress of the executive and children.
Whether the family is renting, or buying a home to live in, it is important to settle them as soon as possible. The immigration lawyers we work with understand just how important each step to settling in is, just as important as having the correct immigration documents prepared to work in a new country.
It is important to have a team of professionals who understand what is necessary to smooth the process and reduce the stress. Working together has proven to be successful for everyone.

HAVE YOU, AS AN EXECUTIVE RECRUITER, EVER USED ORIENTATION SERVICES TO CLOSE A CANDIDATE ON A NEW ROLE IN AN UNFAMILIAR CITY?
It is interesting to note that many executives are asking for more and more assistance these days when contemplating, or accepting, a new position with a corporation in a new location. Much of the decision process is based on unbiased information around housing, and support systems for the family. It seems that children with special needs, such as those with medical or educational concerns, need to be addressed prior to any acceptance of a new role.
In support of the recruiters and candidates we are now successfully introducing the executive to the necessary contacts during the orientation tour of the new city. This happens prior to the last negotiation meeting. It also allows the recruiter to include in the offer letter, any unique needs that the family may have for the relocation. More and more we are crossing paths with children who have very special and unique requirements such as those with autism, or diabetes. These relocations need much more compassion, detailed planning, and support, in order to ensure the executive is in his/her new role and working immediately upon arrival with all the many details taken care of. Taking the time to reveal each unique need, and in turn, finding the best solution is the approach necessary to a successful new hire.
Recruiters have turned to Global Relocation Solutions Inc. to ensure all requirements are revealed, and satisfied, prior to the final interview. Often during the orientation tour, the family will make known their unique needs allowing the communication flow back to the recruiter, offering them time to work through the issues and related costs with the corporation. This in turn allows the recruiter to create an effective offer letter covering all the details clearly, that both the corporation and new hire have agreed to.
As in the case of some very large corporations, the claw back clause included in every offer letter, (covering the repayment of each of the relocation elements), is a part of the relocation budgeting process. When a candidate is “the one they want” components can be traded to balance the budget while offering all the services and support the family will need for a successful relocation.
