Expert support and training for expats working abroad

Perhaps you are about to become an Expat yourself? Through choice or necessity – following the dream lifestyle, or shortly to be posted on a career changing assignment? Or maybe, within your organization, you are the person with responsibility for preparing personnel for working overseas?

For most people, the opportunity to live and work abroad is an exciting prospect - and the reality is that it can be a great adventure with the potential to change lives and careers for the better. But groundwork is key and even the most seasoned traveller will find that travelling itself is little preparation for the total cultural immersion that an Expat can expect to experience.

There are three key phases in the Expat's life-cycle;

  1.     Prior to leaving the home country
  2.     Living abroad
  3.     Repatriation to the home country

Each of these phases requires specialist preparation and support, not only for the Expat, but for their family too. A move to another country is a major event and can impact on the lives of many people. An employee can be distracted at best, unhappy and unmotivated at worst – at the very time when they need to be focusing clearly and performing well.

Each stage is critical and requires navigating with expert guidance. A myriad of issues need to be considered and addressed, from the major to the mundane and without developing and following a strategic plan, there are many potential pitfalls that can lead a posting to breakdown.

Whichever stage of the relocation process you need assistance with, expatknowhow will provide a tailored programme of advice and practical support not just for the Expat themselves, but for their spouse and family where relevant.

To be completely successful, an expatriation requires a ‘holistic' approach that addresses all of the peripheral as well as central issues. Through expatknowhow, an Expat and their family will receive exactly the right relocation support, country briefing and cross-cultural training so that they can:

    Prepare effectively, with the maximum necessary information and the minimum of fuss.

    Work confidently, dealing with new people, new situations, new customs, with assurance.

    Return home without breaking the bank, or breaking the law.

If you need specialist relocation assistance for yourself or your staff, expatknowhow have the travel experience and country-specific expertise to create a cross-cultural training programme to specifically meet your needs and to communicate it in a memorable and enjoyable format.
