When I cam on board — and I suspect the same is true to many others in federal and state government — I relocated and faced a difficult transition. Now with new employees both permanent and temporary, I make sure to ask about their expectations and concerns about living in a new location and refer them to peers or services that will help smooth their transition. In many cases it is the difficulties outside of work that lead to difficulties at work. Looking at the whole person is important.
