Southern Air will soon be moving out of state from its current headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut, to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. According to the New Haven Register, financial issues were the primary motivations for the move and company officials believe the move will be lucrative in the long run. Dan McHugh, Southern Air's CEO, told the news source that proximity to clients was another reason behind the relocation.
"[The airport] is also one of three global hubs for DHL Express, our largest customer," McHugh wrote in an email.
Additionally, Southern Air plans on hiring 120 new employees once the move is complete. The open positions are a result of the company letting go of some of its workers who won't be given the option to relocate in order to keep their current positions. Other businesses take the opposite tack and offer their current staffers the option of moving. The advantage of retaining employees is that they don't require training and regular productivity can resume in a new facility.
Many enterprises cover relocation expenses like hiring state to state movers for their staff. Experienced professionals from corporate relocation companies like Stevens Worldwide Van Lines ensure that employees can easily transition from location to their new homes.
