The schooling of an employee’s children while on assignment can be one of the most emotional and difficult elements of a relocation, this might cause the full expatriation to fail. Relocation can be especially hard on children, which is why it’s important that they are settled into a routine and introduced to new friends as quickly as possible.
Link Mobilité will provide a consultative approach that meets each child’s unique profile.
School searches generally take place before the new home has been chosen and we will
advise on appropriate areas to settle in order to ensure short commuting times.
This programme consists of one day support of which half a day is visits:
• Needs analysis for each child
• Comparison of origin to the schooling systems at destination point
Moving to another country always brings along the challenges that cultural differences may create. Understanding how cultures think about certain things and why they act in certain ways certainly helps in the integration into another culture.
Also, being aware of all the phases they are likely to go through when moving to a foreign country and being prepared for certain customs of a country will help in easing the cultural shock.
Link Mobilité has professional partners who can provide all kinds of training sessions be it cultural diversity trainings, intercultural communication training, business cultural training, cultural awareness training, etc.
The success of the assignment often depends on how happy the spouse or family is while on assignment. Our first class providers can offer the spousal assistance which can increase the success rate of the assignment.
Whether the accompanying partner wishes to study, work, take care of their family or simply have some time off to enjoy life, our partner programmes will ensure that he or she makes the best of their expatriation.
This programme has many levels of assistance, but overall it assists in guiding the partner with valuable networking, CV building and work or voluntary activities.
