Preparing employees for relocation
Orientation in advance: We see to it that your employees adjust quickly
Every relocation benefits from optimal preparation. Because prior to a relocation, employees must contend with many different questions. What can my family and I expect?

Our portfolio covers many services which complement each other. These allay the misgivings of your employees about the assignment, and make getting started easier. Among these are, for example, welcome calls to the first orientation or intercultural training which prevents misunderstandings and provides information about the culture, traditions and environment of the host country.

Our orientation & preview services in detail
Systematic Movement offers a wide range of services which make settling in easier for employees and their families. These include, among other things: Orientation tours before they decide to accept the assignment, welcome calls before the assignment starts. In addition, we help employees and their families during the assignment through Welcome to Germany meetings, office hours, intercultural training and spousal support.
In a full or half-day orientation tour, employees considering an overseas assignment get to know the setting of the host country during final recruitment talks.
The employee obtains a good overview of the future place of residence. This makes a decision in favor of the employer’s location significantly easier. The tour is organized to closely reflect the employee's main interests.
We greet your employee with a welcome call prior to moving to Germany.
In this telephone call our coordinator discusses the processes the employee will be facing. The coordinator also explains the services available to the employee, such as finding accommodation, a school or a kindergarten.
In this meeting, which lasts several hours, all the processes that are essential for all stages of the international assignment are discussed.
Topics include required documentation, the German housing market, insurance needs. The meeting of several hours offers opportunity to clarify any pending questions. Employees also receive helpful guidelines about their specific situation.
New employees and employees who have already been working in Germany for some time receive support in connection with all issues that can come up in daily life in Germany.
Online and/or campus office hours allow any questions and issues of foreign employees to be clarified. Topics covered include: Letters from local authorities, bills, helping the spouse get acclimated, and any social services needed by the family.
This one-day workshop provides advice on acclimating to the new location both on the job and privately.
Training contents include external perception, stumbling blocks, prejudices and varying communication styles. Awareness of these issues helps avoid culture shock so employees achieve their full potential and stay with the company longer.
Spousal support puts things on the right track for a partner accompanying an employee to Germany so they feel welcome in the new host country.
One of the main reasons for the failure of assignments is a lack of support for employee families. With spousal support we take preventive action. We offer new arrivals the opportunity to connect and make friends quickly and to organize leisure activities.
