Many firms help transferees
If you'll take that corporate transfer to Seattle or Miami or just about anywhere it opens up, you'll get tangible financial help and personal guidance from your firm. That's the headline of the 1981 Survey of Corporate Relocation Policies conducted by Hagen Research Company among 600 companies of the Fortune 1,000.
Almost all respondents said they provide one paid-for house-hunting trip to the new location; and 96 percent indicated they helped in the disposal of the former home. Mosttransferred executives came from these four corporate categories: (a) business machines, (b) rubber products, (c) petroleum/gas, and (d) transportation.
