Support International Assignments

Preparing International Assignees is More than Purchasing Airline Tickets

Sending employees to work internationally ensures talent development and continuity of an organization’s global operations. But organizations sending assignees abroad need to take preparation seriously – both before and after assignees arrive at their new assignment. Neglecting to do so often results in negative and costly impacts for employees, their families and their organization.

Ensure the Best Expatriate Experience

Enabling success when living and traveling abroad is a large part of what we do. Our global mobility solutions are designed to help assignees:

  • Maximize time to productivity on assignment
  • Establish trust and build credibility more effectively with local employees and customers
  • Learn how to read cultural behaviors in order to perform effectively in a new country
  • Increase capability to develop or deepen global leadership skills
  • Mitigate potential legal risks for the company by avoiding mistakes

KEY DIFFERENTIATORS

Experience

Aperian Global has prepared tens of thousands of assignees for international moves to more than fifty countries, equipping them with best-in-class support for the challenges they are likely to face in their new locations.

Range of Options

We offer a flexible, convenient spectrum of preparation options for assignees, including face-to-face training for the assignee and family, virtual training, country briefing modules, follow-up one-on-one coaching on site, and access to the GlobeSmart Profile and detailed Culture Guides.

Proprietary Tools

In addition to GlobeSmart, which helps assignees to build cultural self-awareness and learn about their new destination, Aperian Global also offers the Global Competencies Inventory (GCI). The GCI, which like our other instruments has gone through rigorous psychometric testing for reliability and validity, is useful both in assessing potential candidates and targeting priority areas for skill development.

In-Country Resources

Our consultants in major business destinations around the world can provide post-arrival support to assignees. They deliver one-on-one coaching, serving as an objective sounding board for new assignees; they also facilitate on-site assimilation of new managers by soliciting input and feedback from local employees and facilitating team building sessions.
