Making a move
corporate relocation projects are seeing an uptick -- but benefits aren't guaranteed
Organizations are seeking greener pastures. Whether in search of tax benefits, a more skilled labor pool or closer proximity to suppliers, major companies are uprooting headquarters to relocate core operations and key positions. In the past year, ConAgra, General Electric, Samsung and Mercedes-Benz USA have all begun relocating. They're part of a global trend: An Atlas Van Lines survey of 445 corporate decision-makers published in April showed that 50 percent of companies saw relocation volumes increase in 2015; respondents expect more in 2016.
