InterLink Relocation Resources, along with Lockton, Mariner Wealth Advisors, Quicken Loans, Global Tax Network and Beltmann Relocation Group, recently hosted an invitation-only gathering at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO, as part of InterLink’s Networking Event Series. Invitees were treated to a tour of the Kansas City Chiefs’ home field, press room and locker room, as well as a trivia game & prizes, food and drinks. The event’s speakers for the afternoon were Justin Richter, Mariner’s Senior Wealth Advisor, and Chiefs Vice President of Administration, Kirsten Krug. Judging from the feedback sent to the InterLink networking & learning event’s host, National Account Consultant, Alex Calder, attendees had a fantastic afternoon. “We had perfect weather, perfect speakers, great food and finished with a behind the scenes tour of the stadium,” said Alex Calder. “It was a real hoot – maybe even a hootnanny. I can’t wait until the next event…and for those that participated in the trivia game, please continue to work on your spelling!” We are always open to ideas for future invite-only events…if you are interested in attending one of InterLink’s future gatherings, or have an idea for one, please send a note to info@interlinkrelocation.com, or contact our Marketing department at 866-254-3910 and let us know.

Beverly Bell, InterLink’s Regional Director and Client Development, helped to organize and attended a Corporate Relocation Round Table, hosted at Biogen in Raleigh N.C. on June 12th. The event was a robust learning session, with multiple topics of open discussion and two key topic speakers: John Campbell (Talent Outcomes): Talent Management with a Strategic Career Path in mind; and Jim Carroll (WestRock); Debunking the Myth on the Multi-Generational Workforce.

Both of these topics brought interesting discussion, inclusive of how each one impacts an employee’s willingness to relocate, domestically OR Internationally.

John Campbell, on Talent Management and the Value of the Strategic Career Path, shared:
   • Strategy is the key to the long-term development of talent
   • Two-thirds of millennials are looking for long-term opportunities

Statistics show career development is only second to recognition and a LinkedIn survey shows 94% of employees will stay longer if a career development strategy is in place. Profits will grow 3 times faster if the work force is engaged.

Michelle Keech added a statistic recently shared to her Biogen executive team:  Over the last five years, of the 72 long term assignments, 50% are now gone. Many of these had no strategic career path, but the investment dollars for putting them on assignment, plus their skill-set being lost at Biogen = money lost, with the total amount yet to be determined.

  • Employee engagement – employee shows more results to the company 3X faster
  • Companies need a philosophy of talent that includes emphasis on:
  1. Performance
  2. Behaviors
  3. Differentiation
  4. Accountability
  5. Transparency into the talent process

The best results are clear and transparent, and all employees know what is possible and take ownership.

Additionally, Jim Carroll of WestRock shared discussion about a high-level individual who came from division and would be great fit into another segment, but senior management could not see the strategy path.

InterLink enjoys and encourages these learning events, and would love to hear your ideas or topic suggestions for the next Corporate Relocation Round Table. Contact us at info@interlinkrelocation.com and tell us what you think.
