Expatriates who return before the end of their contracts would result in huge costs incurred by their companies. 95% of respondents of a survey indicated that challenges relating to family or spouse/partner and location or cultural issues are considered the first and third most common areas failing to meet expectations. Personal rather than professional issues continue to be by far the most significant factor in failed assignments & dissatisfied assignees.

We leverage on the network & resource pool of our transition expertise including on the ground resources & accredited coaches with relevant experiences to cater to the needs of each spouse/partner.
