SUCCESSFUL EXPAT PARTNER COACHING

​Make your employee's expat assignment
in Germany a success!

​How do your employees react when you offer them an expatriate position?

Do they welcome your offer as a great opportunity
and chance to grow?

Great - congratulations, there is probably no need for you to do anything else.

Or, are they suspicious, skeptical, maybe influenced by social media, stories and rumors of problems that colleagues had with their partner or family?

Clearly, there is some truth behind the concern. There are a number of studies that have proved that the family well-being is a critical factor in the success of an expatriation process.

HR often refer to expat partners as the "dealmaker" or "deal-breaker". According to the Mercer Study, 62% of early terminations are due to an expat partner, more than 50 % of expatriate assignment offers are declined because the partner is unwilling to accompany the employee (Brookfield 2013). Thus, expat partner support is undeniably becoming more and more vital to a successful expatriation offer:

  • ​accompanying partners are also highly educated nowadays and in need of individual and targeted support
  • ​the new generation are motivated by more than just financial rewards
  • ​relocation support, language and intercultural training are not sufficient help to ease culture shock. Ongoing support is needed after arrival.
​How your company will benefit:
  • ​your employee and his partner and/or family will adapt to their new life quickly - increasing employee satisfaction, motivation and productivity!
  • ​your early termination rates for foreign assignments will be lower, reducing costs (difficult to quantify, at least approx. one yearly salary for early termination, resultant costs and image loss is not measurable)
  • ​the positive impact on the overall motivation in the company increases, satisfied employees at home and abroad are the best ambassadors for your company!
  • ​increased willingness to move making your employees more mobiles, thus your international competitiveness also grows
  • ​you are more attractive as an international employer

​Anja really helped me to understand the cultural differences between the United States and Germany and the reasons behind them. She completely understood the feelings that I felt but could not explain. Her knowledge of the area and positive mindset helped me to start a new life in Germany."

Roxana H.

​I can strongly recommend Anja's coaching to anyone relocating to Germany. I found the coaching very insightful and the topics covered extremely helpful. Even though I had moved several times and come from a multicultural background, I still had a culture shock when I arrived in Germany. Anja's professional and practical coaching helped me to settle in quickly and find my way as an expat. I highly recommend her coaching support to anyone moving to Germany."
