Employees baulk at relocation

Employees
are increasingly likely to resist company relocation because of family ties,
according to a Joseph Rowntree Foundation report.

The
research found that promotion, more pay and help with the cost of moving home
were no longer enough to persuade staff to move to a new location.

Staff
are increasingly setting limits on when and where they will move, especially if
they have a family or caring responsibilities for elderly relatives.

The
survey also shows the main tool used by companies to persuade staff to uproot
is an improved financial package.
