Prepared for performance
Experience shows that better informed assignees are more likely to adjust to the experience and make it a success earlier.
There’s a big difference between visiting a place and living there. Add in the weight of expectation that accompanies an assignment and the potential for difficulty is magnified. As a company which has grown up alongside the expansion of corporate relocations, we have learned how to increase the likelihood of success.
Preview trips are not a vacation; they're more of a fact-finding mission.
With people on the ground in nearly 60 countries, we are well placed to manage a preview trip to any destination.
All our consultants are passionate about their locations. Their local knowledge combined with a breadth of experience helping assignees, gives them unique insight into how to get things done in their countries.
They’ll create a fully accompanied tailor-made preview trip—each one a positive, in-depth introduction to any location; addressing all specific concerns, ensuring the visit is effective and objective.
Every destination offers a wide range of accommodation styles to suit the needs, lifestyle and, let’s not forget, the housing allowance of any assignee.
We’ll impartially explain the options available advising on different residential areas, community facilities, safety and entertainment—keeping in mind the assignee’s needs and your policies.
We are prominent in local housing markets and able to negotiate favorable contract terms, as well as coordinate all the formalities in securing a new home.
Our property services extend to helping with departure, concluding a contract, and exiting a property with minimum cost and effort.
On arrival, we offer a range of settling-in services to make the process of setting up a property as simple as possible during those overwhelming first days and weeks.
We’ll take care of organizing basic utilities, advising on banking, driving licences, insurance services and local registrations.
Particularly helpful for assignees with family, our settling in orientation service helps everyone get to know their new neighborhood. Similar to a preview trip, orientation takes into account the many immediate questions that arriving in a new place can create.
Preparation is everything, but there will always be surprises. Your employees will need support, and we’ll be there.
