“This was my first major move and I was not as prepared as I should have been, but your guys were so helpful and understanding. They were so efficient and amazing. They worked quickly, and truthfully, it was a pleasure having them. From the moment they walked in, I felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. You run an unbelievable business.”
“Your team is amazing in their communication, attention to detail, and providing excellent customer service to Sabre's employees and their families for their packing, shipping, and storage needs. Moving to and from an assignment can be terribly stressful for all parties involved, but you and your team really go above and beyond the normal expectations to relieve that stress from the employees and their families.”
A close friend of mine recently tweeted, “It’s August, in the mobility world, what do you do?” First, let me say that I cannot believe that it’s August already. Before we know it, the cool air will set in and we’ll be wishing for those hot summer nights to return. One thing that relocation professionals know, is that no matter how you’re involved in the relocation process, you’ll question your career decision EVERY SINGLE DAY from May through September.
It’s no secret that it’s hard to handle one of the most stressful events a family will ever encounter. We work late hours, talk delivery windows, cubic feet, steamships, and gross ups. Then September rolls around and we all forget how busy summertime was. We take our long awaited vacations; the kid are back in school; vendors come bearing gifts of pizza parties and host meet and greets touting that next year will be “better”…and before we know it, it’s April again. So what do you do in August? Here’s what I replied to my friend:
So my fellow relocation professionals, as we head into the final 30 days of the busy season, keep your head up and keep pressing forward. Labor Day is just around the corner and you’re about to make it through another year of delivering amazing support to your relocating families. Until then, keep calm and relocate!
