Companies that manage their expats successfully follow the three practices that make the assignments work from beginning to end:
- they set clear strategic objectives for the assignment abroad
- they make sure that candidates have cross-cultural skills to match their technical abilities
- and they prepare people to make the transition back to their home offices
As a relocation and repatriation trainer I assist expats and repats adapt to their new locations, workplaces and cultures by offering them professional support.
Did you know that 90% of accompanying partners on international assignments go though an interruption in their career which makes being abroad, “coming home” and looking for work complicated?
I also support other people in the process so that YOU can get on with your job – whether you lead a team in an enterprise or a play for a UK football team, I can assist your husband, girlfriend, family, children and pets to settle into their new environment!
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of that time, the marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
