Every single year, millions of people in the Vietnamese relocate for work – companies hire new employees from out of the area, current employees are sent on long-term assignments in distant cities, staff members are transferred to branch offices across the country, etc. The prospect of moving for a new position, however, is rather daunting and may result in second thoughts about accepting the job offer. So, to ease the anxiety and to provide an incentive for job transfers, companies usually offer relocation assistance to their employees – relocation services meant to relieve the financial burden of moving.
