The importance of relocation services is examined in a sample of 872 employees and spouses. Results indicated that spouses rated all relocation services higher than employees, with the exception of educational information. Comparisons among male and female employees, singleaners and dual-earners, as well as employees with children living at home and those without children living at home also yielded significant differences, primarily in terms of spouse employment assistance, dependent care information, and educational information. Results are discussed in terms of future research and practice, with an emphasis on exploring relocation issues for employees and spouses in a variety of a marital and family arrangements.
