How to ease the transition
Due to the difficulties employers can face in relying on express mobility clauses, particularly with middle management and junior employees, and the fact that the further the distance, the more likely that the employee may refuse to move, means that most large-scale staff relocations are conducted largely on a voluntary basis.
Instead of seeking to force staff to relocate against their wishes, incentives such as relocation bonuses and moving expenses should be offered to encourage a good proportion of the existing workforce to move voluntarily.
Adopting an approach that is more carrot than stick can lead to better employee relations and a vastly reduced risk of expensive and time-consuming legal claims.
