SINGAPORE and DANBURY, Conn., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading relocation and human resources professionals ranked Singapore as the No. 1 place in Asia for a dream job transfer, according to a survey conducted by Cartus at the ERC Worldwide Conference in Shanghai in April.

When asked, "If you could accept a job transfer anywhere in Asia, where would it be?" Singapore (29 percent) topped Hong Kong (26 percent), and China (19 percent). Japan (10 percent), Thailand (5 percent), and Australia (4 percent) rounded out the top six destinations.

When it comes to the top country for a dream job transfer anywhere in the world, human resources professionals in Shanghai overwhelmingly selected the United States (37 percent). In January, a Cartus survey found New York City named as the No. 1 dream job location in the U.S.

Perhaps even more important than money is access to instantaneous communications, according to the relocation professionals, who were asked: "If you could only pack one item to go on your assignment, what would it be?" The following are the top four responses:

  • Mobile phone (22 percent)
  • Tablet (19 percent)
  • Laptop/PC (17 percent)
  • Books and credit cards (tied: 6 percent)

Cartus, which annually helps global companies relocate nearly 165,000 employees, each year also conducts in-depth, multi-faceted surveys (including " Biggest Challenges," and " Global Relocation Trends," among others) that provide companies with the latest trends in the global relocation industry.
