SPATIAL AND MOBILITY REACTIONS OF EMPLOYEES ON RELOCATION OF THEIR WORKING PLACES

RUIMTELIJKE EN MOBILITEITSREACTIES VAN WERKENDEN OP BEDRIJFSVERPLAATSINGEN

In 1989 three government offices, located in The Hague and Dordrecht were relocated to one central office in Rotterdam. In 1994 (four and a half year after this relocation) research on the medium term effects on employees was carried out. This report describes the results. Analysis shows that more than 50% of the employees did not move or changed job. After the office relocation travel distances and times have increased. This increase differs between groups of employees. The moving behaviour (move/no move) and job behaviour (change of job/no change of job) is significantly related to person and household variables such as age, household size and income increase and to distance variables such as the distance between the new office and residential locations and the increase in home-work distance. Besides, loglinear analyses show that many person, household and distance variables interact. Effects of employees changing jobs on the overall mobility level are not very important.
