Developing Globally Mobile Talent

Successful international assignments are dependent on ensuring your employees and their families have the intercultural and communication competence to effectively adapt to living and working in their new location. Customized Expat Advantage intercultural programs, language training and focused Coaching Advantage on-assignment cultural coaching sessions support your employees and families throughout the international assignment lifecycle.

Maximizing Repatriation and Career Planning

Considering the substantial economic investment made with an international assignment, the risk of attrition upon repatriation is a real concern. Re-entry problems are complex, even more so than adjusting to another culture. Ensuring your transitioning employees capitalize on the global competencies gained abroad as they progress along their career path is essential. Our tailored Repat Advantage training programs and Repat Advantage Coaching solutions assist you with the goal of retaining and utilizing the skills of your returning employees, providing development options that can be tied to career planning, and supporting sending and receiving managers who are instrumental in providing the appropriate support for high-performing repatriating employees.
