Magazines in the Relocation Business
The relocation industry has various journals and publications at its disposal which are available for two distinct audiences: global mobility and relocation professionals, and the assignees that they are moving. Although online resources are more and more prolific, printed magazines continue to add value to their readers.
Here in the UK, two popular and well respected titles for global mobility professionals include Re:locate Magazine and International HR Adviser.
Re:locate Magazine is an industry journal in the UK which covers domestic and international relocation issues including a variety of topics that examine the whole industry, from private and public sectors to academic and professional reports and case studies to the latest innovations from leading-edge suppliers. International HR Adviser was established in 2000 to provide advice and strategic solutions to International HR professionals whose role is to manage the global mobility of their company’s expatriate employees.
With respect to the assignees, there is a plethora of resources available online; however printed magazines are becoming a scarcity. For example, The American, American in Britain, Ici Londres and Leros are publications targeted to the nationals of the US, France and Brazil, respectively. FOCUS Magazine is a publication dedicated to the international community in greater London. A lifestyle magazine, there are articles which address a wide range of topics from career, food & drink and education, to explaining the best of Britain.
