Why hire an expat coach?

The Global Relocation Trends Survey from 2012 showed that the most common reasons for turning down assignments, were family concerns, partner’s career, and employee career aspirations. Additionally, when asked which family challenges were critical to companies, respondents mentioned family adjustment, children’s education, and partner resistance as the top three reasons.

Stress resulting from a long lasting feeling of dissatisfaction of the partner can have a negative effect on the whole family and on the expat employee in particular leading to less efficiency at work and in some cases to the early termination of the international assignment, or even break-up of the family.
