Relocation packages are being offered more and more often by companies trying to recruit, and also retain, quality employees. But what is a relocation package? It is a package offered when a company is offering an existing employee a transfer to a new location or trying to entice a new employee to a move to a location that is generally 50 miles from their current location. While relocation packages were at one time typically offered to only upper-management or higher-level employees, they are offered more and more frequently now that the climate of the workforce has changed. People want, and demand, a better work/life balance, they want to travel and experience new things. Companies now offer this incentive to help keep, and recruit, the best of the best in this competitive job market.
