As one of the top destination cities for relocation, New York City is well-equipped with corporate housing accommodations that are comfortable and safe, and situated in locations all across the city. From a Human Resources perspective, employees can start work immediately after arrival and focus on the job while they search for a permanent residence.
Corporate apartment rentals are a cost effective way to provide temporary housing. In comparison to daily hotel rates, a 30-day rental is a significant savings especially when factoring in meals, laundry service and amenities. Furnished apartments include full kitchens, laundry facilities, high-speed internet and free local phone calls. Should a short-term assignment be extended, corporate housing leases can likewise be extended, and that flexibility is not only convenient but cost effective as well.
Although NYC can be a bit intimidating at first, transferees grow accustomed to the pace and get caught up in the excitement. Newcomers enjoy the convenience of easy access to transportation for work, shopping, and exploring the city and its environs. Getting around the city is a snap!
Furnished housing offers comfortable surroundings and amenities to help new arrivals ease into their new environment. Units are exquisitely designed with superior lighting and polished bath fixtures; state-of-the-art kitchens with attractive cabinetry; granite or marble countertops; and upgraded appliances. Laundry facilities are available in each building; some units are endowed with their own washer and dryer. A complete set of cookware, dishes, cutlery, towels and linens are included. Features typically include an on-site health club, concierge service, high-speed internet and 24-hour security. Some buildings offer balconies with panoramic views. Employees can even find units that are pet-friendly.
New employees and short-term assignees are a prime source of business for corporate housing providers. These service providers ensure a streamlined reservation process for Human Resources, including customized reporting and one point of contact. Dedicated and experienced staff go out of their way to accommodate special needs and welcome guests on international assignments with cultural sensitivity. For new hires, this is a cost effective and welcoming way to bridge the housing gap between onboarding and permanent relocation.
