Expatriate Training & Support

 

Preparing Your Assignees for a Successful Overseas Assignment

Challenges that come with living and working in an unfamiliar country can’t be over estimated. When employees understand the culture in which they will be living and working, they are much more likely to succeed while on assignment. WorldWide Connect’s customized expatriate cultural training programs provide expatriates and their families with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to speed their transition and improve cross-cultural business understanding for your assignees.

WorldWide Connect’s expatriate programs are designed to enable your assignees to:

        Learn vital information about their host country, such as:

  • Protocol and techniques for doing business in the host country
  • How to meet daily needs in the new environment
  • Relevant nuances about the culture, geography and history

        Understand the role of culture in business and social relationships, including:

  • Differences in cultural values between their home country and host countries
  • Preferred styles of communication and making business transactions
  • Etiquette and protocol for social and business engagement

        Develop the skills and knowledge for successful adaptation in life and work overseas, such as:

  • Competencies for effective cultural adaptation while on assignment
  • Identifying and effectively managing the transition to minimize culture shock

By investing in these programs you will help your assignees and families to:

  • Feel more comfortable and be more productive in their new host culture
  • Avoid costly mistakes, and reduce conflict resulting from cultural differences
  • Be more effective in meeting your business objectives, which improves profitability
