On the Rise: Women are thriving in the relocation industry

The most recent publication of Direction The Magazine of the American Moving & Storage Association, published an article about the rise of women in the relocation industry. The article, which features five influential women whose careers vary from three to 43 years in the industry, dives into their perspective of being a woman in what has traditionally been a male dominated workforce.

Women in the relocation industry is not new to Signature Relocation as women have always played a very important role within our company. We are proud that three of our four upper management positions as well as 80% of our support staff are filled by women. We also encourage the growth of women within our organization by offering continuous education and training for our support staff team. We appreciate the value women bring to our industry and are excited to see this being acknowledged and supported by our peers.

Signature announces the successful roll-out of the My Personal Move Program

Since its formation in 1988, Signature Relocation has primarily worked with corporations, serving as relocation counselors for organizations moving anywhere in the world. From helping find real estate agents to mortgage referrals and language training, the Signature team has worked closely with the relocation employee, the corporate client, and our service partners to ensure every relocation goes right. With its Global Relocation Solutions program offered to corporate clients, Signature handles both domestic and international programs.

Now, Signature is proud to announce the successful roll-out of its new My Personal Move Program. My Personal Move is offered to friends and family of corporate-sponsored transferees, or to any employee who is relocating without paid benefits from their employer. With My Personal Move, employees relocating independently can now enjoy the kind of cash-back opportunities with real estate agents, mortgage providers, and moving services that were once only available to corporate clients.
