Looks at domestic relocation practices and how the expatriation assignments have worked out in recruitment and retention. States that both domestic and international assignment relocation face similar issues but that there are many extra items in international assignments. Records around 70 per cent of all employee relocations fail due to personal or family difficulties. Concludes that employers now realise that managing the employee’s concerns better will be an advantage to both parties in the long run, with fewer failures for employees in their assignments and for management in cost.
