It is harder than ever to relocate employees and new hires. Most of today’s families include two working professionals, so the prospect of interrupting a spouse’s career to accommodate a relocation often creates serious family issues that can breed resentment, affect productivity and lead to voluntary turnover. Relocations are expensive, and those that fail because of family matters have a devastating impact not only on the employee and their family, but also the company.
