If you are looking at a situation where you are opening up a new store in New Orleans, or you have recently started up an expanded office in the area, then you are going to need to hire or relocate some workers. If you are hiring people who are already living in the area, housing is not much of an issue. But if you are hiring someone from another state, or you are relocating some of your existing employees from one of your other offices, then you are going to need to provide housing.
In some cases, the New Orleans corporate housing that you need to provide is only temporary. You may need to provide housing, which can be an apartment or a house, for a month or two. It would allow your employees to get properly settled, whether they have moved themselves or with their family. When they have found their own place, you would not need to provide housing. But it is very helpful if you can do this for your employees on an interim basis. Not only will they feel as if they are really being taken care of – but they will be able to concentrate on their work instead of house hunting from day one.
And when you are getting people to relocate for a really short period of time, such as a few weeks or months, you will most definitely have to provide them with a housing option for that time. You cannot expect an employee to pay for a hotel or motel the entire time they are staying in New Orleans, and they would find it really hard to sign a lease on an apartment or home if they are only staying in the area for a few months. Most places have annual leases, which is why corporate housing is so useful.
