corporate_relocation_businessmanHuman resources executives of global companies, take note: if you want to bring smiles to the faces of your relocating employees, tell them you have a job relocation for them in New York City or somewhere in Europe.

In a year-end survey, Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of domestic and global relocation services, asked several hundred relocation and human resource professionals, “If you could accept a job transfer to any place in the world, where would it be?”

The United States overall was the No. 1 answer, followed closely by Europe.

Cartus, which annually helps global companies relocate nearly 160,000 employees, each year also conducts in-depth, multi-faceted surveys that provide companies with the latest trends in the global relocation industry.

At the recent Worldwide Employee Relocation Council® (ERC) conference in Dallas, Cartus executives went directly to the experts—leading relocation and human resources professionals from multinational companies—to get their opinions on which locations would top their list for dream job transfers domestically and worldwide.

Although most survey respondents simply wrote “U.S.” or “Europe” as their top two global picks, those who were specific named the following seven places as their top international dream job relocation hot spots:

1. Italy and Australia (tied)
2. France
3. New Zealand
4. Germany
5. Singapore
6. Spain
7. Hong Kong

In the U.S., the top seven dream job transfers named were:

1. New York City
2. San Francisco
3. San Diego
4. Boston
5. Chicago
6. Miami
7. Dallas

Cartus also asked these relocation and HR professionals, “If you were being transferred, what would you consider as the most important factor before accepting the new job assignment?”

By percentage, the answers were:

38 percent = My spouse’s/family’s happiness while on assignment
22 percent = Pay raise/new responsibilities
22 percent = Potential for career advancement
13 percent = Location
5 percent = Length of assignment
