Moving across town, across the country, or to the other side of the world for a new job can seem like an intimidating task. Getting a new house up and running is not always easy, and getting one started from scratch takes a lot of hard work. So many things must be accounted for, like moving household goods, cars, and your family and pets. And, it takes lots of time to get it just right.
Of course, this is in addition to taking on a new role with a new organization; it may feel like uncharted territory, and the same goes for the cloud. Companies may believe that the time and investment required in setting up a viable cloud for their business is daunting. The cloud bus takes the hard work out of cloud implementation.
Perfecting the Process
To mitigate some of the stress associated with relocation, companies will provide new employees with accommodations and moving logistics as part of the sign-on package. Why? Because organizations see value in anything that can be done to expedite the new hire process and advance an employee to be up and running as quickly as possible. Most importantly, the company needs to focus on immersing the new employee in their new role. A new employee can get off the plane, check-in to corporate housing, and be free from all other worries outside of work. Laundry is taken care of and meals are just a call or short walk away—every service you could possibly need is in place. Your bed is always made, and the room is neat and tidy. What’s not to like?
Creating a Home
It’s easy to quickly adjust to a well-kept home with little to no effort required on your behalf. A harsh reality sets in when the time comes to go out on your own, and the actuality of leaving such a cushy environment comes into view; the weight of setting up your own home begins to set in. The chores list starts filling up: signing up for Internet, getting back into a grocery buying pattern, adjusting to a much longer commute, and so on. It makes you wonder if you can extend your extended stay hotel.
