Whilst many of us love the thought of ‘going home’, it can be something of a shock when you get back… the memory doesn’t necessarily match the reality.
Without an effective ‘return plan’, the risk is that your employees will have feelings of being an ‘outsider’, of being under-appreciated, and they can struggle to successfully share their experiences and newly acquired knowledge. Prior working relationships may have changed and new dynamics affected work groups. Similarly, friends and neighbours aren’t quite how they were before your employees and their families left. And the impact on children can be significant, although they often seem more resilient.
This ‘reverse culture shock’ is a recognised phenomenon, but it can be managed… which is where our carefully constructed course and counselling can really help your assignees and their families overcome the issues and effects of this natural human trait.
