Relocation Benefits on the Rise as Return-to-Office Push Strengthens

A growing number of companies have begun to shift their stand on remote and flexible work schedules as a push for employees to return to the office is on the rise. A sign of the developing trend is an increase of U.S. job postings mentioning relocation benefits by nearly 75% year-over-year as of February 2023. Cited as an example among big companies was Colgate-Palmolive Co. and Walmart Inc, which “have told new hires that they need to live near the office and show up several times a week.”
