Relocation Training

As companies become more global every day, so does the movement of sending employees abroad on assignment. Not only do these expats have to adjust to a new working environment, but often they need to learn about the new country they will be living and working in. These assignments can be quite costly for the company, so it is important that they go smoothly. One of the most common reasons overseas assignments fail is because the partner or the family of the assignee are unhappy. Relocation training helps to prepare people for their assignment and fast tracks their success adjusting to their new lives abroad.

We design relocation training that is customized for expatriates (and anyone relocating with them) to their needs to help prepare employees for their assignment. Prior to the training, we complete a needs analysis to address all of the participants’ questions, concerns and topics of interest.

Objective

Whether you are sending a manager, an employee or even an intern abroad, relocation training can help with this process of change. It is not only language training that might be needed, but also the cultural and practical knowledge. There is a transition process and culture shock involving adjusting to living and working in a new culture, in addition to the challenges of adapting to a new country and city in general.
