Other points from the article:

  • Fewer companies are considering out-of-town applications thereby limiting job prospects for talented individuals. This is because companies can’t afford to relocate employees so they aren’t even looking at those resumes.
  • 19% of companies have admitted they have cut employee benefits in the last six months; 17% eliminated corporate relocation programs altogether.
  • Declining home values and stalled home sales are playing a role in a company’s unwillingness to relocate employees. They don’t want to get saddled with an underwater mortgage and individuals getting relocated are struggling to sell their homes in a timely fashion.
