Cultural training

Moving to a new culture is a challenge even to an experienced expatriate. Succeeding at work and fluent networking require an understanding and internalization of the local culture. We offer intercultural training specifically tailored to the needs of the newcomer and the organization that help the newcomer master the local style of communication and social interaction, organizational behavior, and the norms of the business culture. We familiarize him or her in the local worlds of art, entertainment, and sports as well as other local peculiarities. The cultural training can be held either individually or in groups.

 

International mobility efforts always include a need for ancillary services ranging from moving services to questions on international taxation.

Training services

We offer training services to companies that aim to utilize a more international workforce. Preparing the organizational culture and the newcomer in advance will benefit the productivity of both the organization and the individual.

Moving services

We all have property that we want to bring with us when we move. Ridding yourself of old furniture and buying a whole new set can be a significant cost and an additional burden that require further exertions from the newcomer and his or her family. Also, in order for the new home to be as comfortable and homely as possible, familiar items around the house will impart a feeling of security. As a full-service relocation service provider we also take care of our clients’ international moving efforts, regardless of country of origin.

International taxation

The differing tax codes between countries are often a cause of confusion for many, be they employers or employees.

Consultation services

As companies become more internationalized or as new challenges present themselves, it is good to have a reliable and experienced partner. We have been and continue to be a part of a wide range of projects with our clients, such as:
 

  • Designing expat-policies
  • Developing the processes for managing international employees
  • Developing new services to support recruitment
  • Outsourcing agreed upon internal processes
  • Managing outplacement situations

 
All projects are created together with our clients and always include goals, reporting, and metrics.

Language training

Although in international business circles the lingua franca is English, learning the local language yields many benefits. By knowing the local language it is easier to be included in the company’s community and is a clear sign of the employee’s respect for the local culture and customs. This will greatly reduce any possible resentment in the company against the newcomer. It also further ties the employee into the company.

 

Language training also has many indirect benefits. If the employee has a family for example, his or her language studies may assist the family in learning the language as well, which in turn increases the chances of the spouse finding a job and prevents the social exclusion of the children. These factors play a huge role in the success of an international relocation.
