About the program

About the Expat Optimiser Program

Whether it is long-commuting, short or long assignments, the cost of expatriation and long-distance working is significant – as are the opportunities for value as a result of the expatriate assignment. At the same time research and the experience of many organisations tells us that the success rates of expats, especially in their ‘first 90 days’ is variable, and we know that turnover rates both during the assignment and within two years of returning from the assignment is equally high. In a post-Covid world we know expatriation will still be an important element of global organisations; however there will be fewer expat assignments compared to pre-Covid times, which means organisations will have greater pressure to make sure the assignment works and generates equal value for the organisation and the expat.

This program has been designed to contribute to the success of corporate mobility programs by helping to set your expats up for success, and to ensure the returning staff member can reintegrate smoothly and effectively. Typical areas of focus include:

  • Coaching to help expats and their partners assimilate quickly to their new surrounds
  • Developing a 1, 3 and 6 month plan to get on task with their job quickly and efficiently
  • How to maintain a healthy sense of resilience despite the challenges that accompanies expatriation
  • Dealing with the challenges of identity and “what’s next” for the partners of expats who are leaving their own career behind
  • Managing and balancing family and work needs
  • Dealing with reverse culture shock
  • Knowing how to initiate knowledge transfer
  • Re-establishing networks and relationships in a changed environment
  • Developing a plan for getting back on task in the new environment
  • Managing and balancing the challenges of repatriation, including family support
  • First time expats
  • Partners of expats
  • Experienced expats looking to refine their global working skills
  • Returning staff members undergoing repatriation and their family
