Want to work overseas? More and more United States companies with foreign operations are adding attractive incentives for executives and others to take jobs abroad, according to the Conference Board, a New York economic research organization.
Of the 120-plus corporations polled this spring, almost all were found to be offering special bonus plans - up from some 70 percent 10 years ago. Extra benefits are also given out in the form of cost-of-living allowances, tax equalization stipends, and housing aid, the study showed.
To compensate for abnormal overseas expenses, 69 percent of the companies in the survey said they provide hardship allowances; 11 percent offer mobility pay.
