Basingstoke & HCR
“Basingstoke has a very
good mix of companies, but importantly major multi-national players who have
attracted talented individuals and smaller companies to relocate to the area to
support the varied industry sectors now represented in the town.”
Adrian Leach, Business Development Director at HCR
An Independent Relocation Company Like No Other
HCR is a long term resident of Basingstoke; our core business is Relocation – this is what we do every single day – and we are good at it! Wherever possible, our outlook to risk is to reduce and/or eliminate it. We achieve this by partnering with our clients, sharing our knowledge and experience, and by seeking the best value. We are open, honest, transparent and independent; providing you with complete objectivity and control while we manage your relocation programme.
Whether you relocate one employee or hundreds of employees, whether they move domestically or internationally, over the short term or the long term, permanently or are returning home for good – HCR Group can help you have the right people in the right place at the right time without it costing the earth.
We are extremely proud to have held ISO 9001 since November 1994 and Investors in People since February 1999.
Location, Location, (Re)Location
Since 1982, HCR has been helping corporations to successfully relocate their employees and is now the UK’s largest independent relocation company. In 2011 we took a step across the big pond to open our first overseas office in Florida, USA. Our worldwide service continues to raise the profile of the company and the local area – putting Basingstoke on the global map.
We have the pleasure of a workforce residing in and around the local area, with the vast majority of our employees living in the catchment area of Basingstoke and Deane borough council. We are proud of our exceptionally loyal and long-serving employees (60% have been with HCR for more than 11 years) and they are the company’s most important assets.
HCR staff living in Basingstoke benefit from a buzzing town centre, a thriving community and enjoy the rare combination of a wealth of facilities coupled with the rolling green hills of Hampshire just two miles from the centre. There is an ample supply of first-rate housing well suited to professionals and families alike, a number of entertainment amenities and exemplary education and healthcare systems in place. This means Basingstoke is a great place to live as well as work. Basingstoke also enjoys fantastic transport links, high profile businesses and a close proximity to London, which means we have easy access to and from our many and varied clients.
It’s Not Easy Being Green
In spring 2010, HCR launched its innovative Sustainable Relocation promise – planting a tree for every relocation. This year HCR teamed up with Basingstoke and Deane Borough council to ensure their local community benefited from our promise. We did this by aligning with the council’s woodland strategy and planting trees to create a wildlife corridor in Old Basing. Over 800 trees have been planted, all grown from seed gathered in Hampshire. This movement has received great feedback from both peers and clients. We are the first relocation company within the UK to be accredited with an ISO 14001 certificate in environmental management, and we have also achieved the esteemed Carbon Footprint Standard.
Basingstoke and Deane:
- Fantastic location, with ever improving transport links to surrounding areas and major cities
- Home to several major corporations and highly valuable SMEs
- High standards of education and health care
- A sense of community throughout
- A vast proportion of staff are Basingstoke residents
