When lockdowns
forced many clients
of relocation firms to
quickly abandon their
rental properties and
return home, that
prompted a need to
offer home supervision
services. The service
provided by one Indian
firm checked rentals
to make sure everything was locked up
tight, that there were
no break-ins, and that
appliances were turned
off. Its team also
contacted landlords
in an effort to reduce
costs through the renegotiation of leases for
tenants stuck paying
for unoccupied homes
and apartments.

Shortly after the
pandemic struck, a
Swedish relocation firm
instituted a program
called Motivational
Mondays, aimed at
protecting the mental
and physical health of
its employees. It included a focus on mindfulness, nutrition, yoga,
motivation, productivity, and among other
things, the need to stay
hydrated. This and a
daily " huddle " practice
" became our glue.
It held us together, "
according to the company. The programs
will continue with or
without COVID-19.

Interesting, challenging, and surprising
stats and finds around the globe
BY JON FERGUSON

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many of us to rethink
how we do things-and in mobility, one area of focus has been
on reimagining destination services. Leaders around the globe
report that they and others in their network leaned on their
collective ability to find creative, innovative paths forward as
clients scattered and employees sought refuge in their homes.

The inspiration to do
more and do better
this year has been
very powerful, with
new leaders emerging
at multiple levels in
organizations. Zoom
meetings in particular
have become equalizers to break down walls
and embolden people
to express themselves
and to make important
contributions to product development.

The need to work
virtually led local
government officials
in European countries
to accept digital copies
of key documents like
birth and marriage
certificates. In the past,
they demanded paper
copies that had to be
delivered in person. It's
to be hoped that this
practice continues even
after the pandemic.

Before the coronavirus,
email served as the
prime means of communication. Businesses
discovered, however,
that customers were
clamoring for more
personal connections
in the isolating wake
of the coronavirus,
leading employees
to pick up the phone
and make " welcoming
calls " to their clients. All
agree that is a positive
change that will likely
continue.
