Abstract:

This report is a review and synthesis of the literature on job transfers. Transfers are job and location changes within the organization which necessitate both adjusting tolearning a new job for the employee, and adjusting to a new community for the family. Very little is known about either of these two processes. This report summarizes past research and suggests new hypotheses in the areas of employee and family adjustment to both domestic and foreign transfers. In another section, an organizational view of the costs and benefits of transfers is presented. The final section pinpoints the few facts we have discovered about transfer adjustment, and suggests major areas in need of additional research.
