As an alternative (or addition) to an Area Orientation, you may wish to offer your employees HCR’s Settling In Service, which provides an overview of the new location immediately after the employee and their partner/family have moved in.
Similar to an Area Orientation, a Settling In programme is facilitated by an Agent on behalf our Destination Service Provider (DSP) and gives an overview of all the desired facilities, services and amenities within proximity. Where required, the Agent can also assist your employees with opening bank accounts, registering with doctors/dentists, and purchasing mobile phones.
The Agent will also identify any significant everyday practices that may differ to those of the home country. We can also provide a Welcome Pack (either separate to or part of this service) of local area information in the employee’s property, tailored to requirements.
Many worldwide destinations offer convenient access to support/social groups which are aimed the partners of working expatriates; some of these are nationality-specific, and the aims and activities of each group varies. For an employee moving to another country, HCR can provide a list of suitable groups for their partner, and assist them with getting in touch.
