A physical change in location can mean business growth for a company. Moving to a larger city can lead to more publicity, better connections, and overall success! However, employees must fill these new offices, and getting them there involves a much different transition for them than for the computers and desks they’ll be sitting at.
Uprooting employees puts strain on individuals and relationships, especially if they have established a family in their original region. If children are involved, disruption in their education, socialization, and overall routine occurs. Depending on how far a company will relocate, an employee can even experience more drastic changes such as adjusting to different climates and cultures if the move is abroad.
