The process begins even before they arrive, as we compile and send customised orientation guides and online resources tailored to their interests related to schools, lifestyle and other personal priorities.
This support continues during orientation visits and after the move, as we assist with personal matters such as locating banks and doctors, arranging for language lessons and cultural orientation sessions and even supporting employees’ spouses or partners with job searches.
Many companies authorise or even encourage potential staff to take a pre-move orientation trip so they’re in a better position to make the right decisions related to the assignment. We’ll coordinate these trips and ensure that staff and their families get a true picture of the area, including general housing and location options, culture, recreation, cost of living, transport and any other unique factors important to the family.
A relocation can significantly change the life of every member of the employee’s family. Our consultants will work with staff to identify schools, youth clubs, expatriate organisations and other opportunities to help family members quickly acclimatise. And since the relocation usually entails a job or career change for an employee’s spouse or partner, we can arrange for specialised career counselling, job search coaching, networking referrals, job market research and even CV development to help advance his or her career in the new location.
Proper cultural training is important to the success of any international assignment. We have global coverage and a network of certified trainers with expertise in a wide range of cultures who can deliver programmes virtually or on site at nearly any location in the world. We also offer language training services through our partners in 450 language centres in more than 50 countries.
