In this global economy, more and more companies are using foreign specialists to fill critical positions and more and more entrepreneurs are expanding their businesses abroad.
Being an expat employee or entrepreneur presents a lot of challenges to overcome. Research shows that most of the attrition experienced by companies in this area is due to the difficulty in adapting to a new environment past the initial company support.
The problem is compounded when the expat employee or entrepreneur’s spouse or partner is unable to adapt to the new environment. Research again shows that lack of spouse or partner’s adaptability to be the number one cause of expat assignment failure.
All of this comes at an enormous cost, both financial and otherwise, to both companies and individuals.
