Companies are becoming more optimistic about their relocation initiatives, with expectations for 2011 nearly meeting pre-recession levels, according to a new survey.

More than one-half (61 per cent) of global companies expect to transfer more employees in 2011 than in recent years, according to the 2011 Global Relocation Trends Survey by Brookfield Global Relocation Services. This is up from 44 per cent in 2010 and is the highest level since 2007, when it was 68 per cent.
