Being assigned abroad is both exciting and worrisome. What are some key elements to ensure a successful assignment?

Passport Most international relocation failures are due to a lack of information. Expatriates as well as companies who transfer employees abroad need to do a little extra preparation to guarantee the highest rate of success. Here are some tips:
  • Lifestyle

  • Gather as much information as you can about such things as climate, voltage differences, housing, schools, medical facilities, and transportation. Use the Internet (a great task for kids).
  • Language

  • Take special language courses for transferees and family members relocating to a non-English speaking country so they can function on a daily basis as soon as they arrive. Continue with language training upon arrival.
  • Culture

  • Learn about the new country’s culture and seek out training on etiquette differences. For example, employees transferring to Japan should know the Japanese don’t like to shake hands.
  • Customs

  • Find out what personal items are and are not allowed to be brought into the new country. For example, Christmas trees are forbidden in many Muslim countries.
  • Spouse relocation

  • To help prevent a failed relocation because of an unhappy spouse, get special counseling on job opportunities.
