Being able to speak with our industry colleagues and friends about relocation trends and solutions is an opportunity we always look forward to. Recently, Molly Vickery, Corporate Sales Executive, participated in a panel discussion hosted by the Charlotte Metro Area’s Relocation Council (CMARC). The panel of six industry experts spoke to over 75 attendees on the topic of navigating relocation programs amidst current industry and global challenges.
CMARC’s panel discussion, which took place at the Sonesta Hotel Executive Park, included a luncheon and conversation about what challenges and solutions are impacting relocations. Especially during the past two years, so much about relocating can feel daunting, and with challenges like inflation and supply chains under stress, transferees have a lot to consider.
Molly and her fellow panelist expanded on the following solutions as ways to strengthen mobility programs and build trust with transferees:
- Offer core/flex benefits
- Set realistic expectations
- Think outside the box
- Communicate more now than ever
We were so thankful to join our CMARC colleagues as part of these timely discussions and appreciate the wonderful feedback we received during and after the event. Thank you to everyone at CMARC who made this event such a success, and special thank you to Molly for sharing your insight and expertise with all in attendance!

“Lump sums for relocation programs are something that we’re seeing more of, but they’re not a ‘one size fits all’ fix,” shared Molly, as part of the CMARC panel. “Hilldrup has a team of educators trained to take that lump sum and really stretch the dollar amount allotted to give the transferee as much spending power as possible.”
