As much as we’d like to claim that we can handle every aspect of managing your expat assignments, there are some things that only you know how to do best—like making sure that everyone has what they need from their new location and environment.
We can help by analysing your global mobility program—policy effectiveness, performance structure and tracking; expense management (approval and reimbursement), accounts payable and reporting; identifying industry leading trends and practices so you can remain competitive; or even just providing some much-needed support when things get tough.
When you decide to invest in international assignments, you are taking a measured risk. Statistics show that it can cost double an employee’s salary to hire and train a new employee.

Many companies are realising that pets can be a great way to improve the experience of their employees and improve the productivity of their company.
In fact, it’s not uncommon for people to bring their pets along on business trips. But what happens when you’re traveling with your pet? Can they stay at the same hotel as you? Are they allowed to ride in the cab? Do they need their own seat on the plane?
Our team will handle everything from making sure they comply with all travel regulations to sourcing pet friendly properties and recommending places to walk the dog or pet-friendly pubs. We’ll manage everything for you so that all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy!
Settling in quickly is an important part of the relocation process. It’s not just about finding somewhere to live; there are many other things you need to do, such as registering with the council and choosing utility providers.
Our settling-in service ensures that these tasks are handled smoothly and efficiently. We take care of all necessary registrations and applications, so your employees can be productive in their new role immediately.
Studies have found that one of the main reasons for employees not accepting an international assignment is the potential inconvenience to their partner. Partner Support is designed to help partners acclimatise and adapt to their new lives more easily, which helps protect your company’s investment.
Our diligent team bring a service to the table that is specific and relevant to each partner/family member—whether they want CV writing advice or interview preparation, career counselling, recruitment services, self-employment support or community involvement!
