We previously discussed the hidden costs of moving from the employer perspective. But there is more to the effects of moving on an employer than the working hours spent planning a move (rather than working). From the stress of choosing a mover to the distractions over details, the performance and productivity of an employee during their move can be substantially worse than most other life events.
Balancing major life changes with regular work days often results in an imbalance–with work often losing the battle for attention. Instead of criticizing or micromanaging employees, employers can support the acute personal challenges their employees are experiencing by providing access to resources, discounts and even flexible time to manage their work / life balance.
