Attitude survey : internationally relocated corporate executive's wives

The wives of corporate executives are often asked to relocate because of their husbands' career. This presents many problems for the wife and her family. These problems could be eased if the company initiating the relocation would spend time educating and counseling the wife and family concerning the move. This study was done by developing and administering a questionnaire that dealt with the relocation process and its effect on the wife. The study took place in Dublin, Ireland and included women relocated there because of their husband's career. The women were asked to report their experiences and feelings concerning the relocation to Ireland. This study examined the company's role in the relocation process as it applied to the wife, and offered recommendations to make future relocations easier.
