Richard Willeter at the AYS Expo in Hong Kong
September 27, 2012
Richard Willeter, Director of Corporate Services, Asia, presented at the “At Your Service” Expo on Friday, September 14, 2012.
The main presentation focused on relocating expatriates into Hong Kong, but Richard also provided an anecdotal story of his own experience of relocating to Hong Kong and the emotional aspects of moving with a family—humanizing the management of relocation with a contextual focus on Hong Kong. The need for sensitivity to the human aspects can be forgotten as HR departments are forced to focus on corporate strategy, cost cutting and policy adherence.
The Crown Group is highly experienced in addressing the human aspects of relocation, providing destination and settling-in services for expatriates throughout the world for over 45 years. The local knowledge of Crown’s consultants is combined with a breadth of experience to assist in planning, living and working in a new location. Willeter’s presentation aimed to provoke thoughts and provide helpful information to the audience.
