How do you help the partners of your international assignees to THRIVE?
International assignees who are accompanied by partners who have developed their ability to THRIVE in new countries and cultures will be more likely to perform well, consider extended or new international assignments meaning that you grow your talented and internationally mobile workforce.
But there is a challenge:
- The majority of international assignees relocate with partners who leave valued careers and incomes behind. In choosing to support the assignee’s career, they are attracted by the potential opportunities and experience of international relocation.
- Developing a career in a new location and culture can be daunting when undertaken alone.
