It is no surprise that the 2009 Worldwide ERC Benchmarking Survey reports the number one reason behind relocation reluctance is the feeble housing market. Employees are unable to sell their houses for the prices they want and unable to afford housing in the areas to which they are relocating. General resistance to the idea of moving either by the employee and/or the family is also another reason why employees are reluctant to relocate.
Although corporate relocation reluctance is one of the biggest challenges facing the corporate industry, there are several ways to move beyond this challenge. While corporate housing providers cannot change the housing market and the high cost of living, they can change their rates to suit the needs of families that are dealing with financial challenges and tight budgets.
