Abstract

Employers operate a number of policies to influence the labour markets of their individual organizations, the most important being the routine movement of staff between the branches of multi-locational firms. Evidence is presented for a sample of migrants in England and Wales who moved jobs and homes at the same time and stayed with the same employer. These intra-organizational migrants were of two types: (1) those who requested the move and (2) those who were asked to move by their employers. Members of the first group tended to be younger, in lower socio-economic groups, earned less and were not moving to achieve promotion. The migration policies of organization are revealed as assisting in particular those who already can more easily surmount barriers to labour migration.
