It is important to us that your work abroad is a good and enriching experience for you and your family. That’s why we provide intensive preparation and are by your side every step leading up to the time abroad. And we are certainly there to support you during your assignment and when you return.
Orientation trip, intercultural training & language classes
During the initial preparation for your longer term assignment abroad, you will be able to take an orientation trip to your future host location. This will give you and your family the chance to familiarize yourselves with the new personal and professional surroundings.
An intercultural training class gives you and your partner a foundation to quickly adjust to your new work and living situation. We will also provide all necessary information to help you overcome the challenges of your new daily life.
You and your partner will be able to immerse yourself in the new language by taking a language class. Naturally, we also offer a preparatory language class for your children.
Application forms, social security & health
To ensure that you can fully focus on your assignment abroad, we will take care of:
- Applications such as visa, work and residence permits for your host country. We will, of course, also bear any incurred costs.
- An appropriate social security scheme: We ensure seamless insurance coverage and will find solutions for you that make sense in order to ensure comparable benefits.
- Your and your family’s health: For optimal prevention and care in case of an illness, we ensure comprehensive health insurance abroad.
Moving & housing
We ensure the best conditions so that you can quickly acclimate to your new environment: For example, we cover all your moving expenses and offer our full support together with that of experienced service providers. In addition, we will provide you with a lump sump for the move to cover any incurred incidental costs. This, of course, also applies to your return to your home country.
And during shorter international assignments? We will provide you with an appropriate hotel room or apartment.
We want to make getting used to your new surroundings as easy as possible not only for you, but also for your children, which is why we help you find appropriate childcare options and education facilities. We will pay kindergarten fees (as of 2 years of age) as well as any incurred school fees.
We will also pay for any arising tutoring costs after your return home to facilitate a smooth integration in school
Remuneration & vacation
Regardless of which country your assignment is in – we can assure you that you will not suffer any disadvantages or losses with regard to your pay:
- During shorter international assignments, you will continue to be paid in your home country and receive additional per diem amounts.
- For longer international assignments, you will be transferred to the remuneration system of your host country. Depending on your work location, you will receive various allowances (e.g. cost of living, quality of life, mobility allowance, transportation and housing).
- In addition, we will ensure that you do not suffer any tax disadvantages compared to your home country, and we will take care of your tax return preparation in your host and home countries.
Whether you want to travel within your host country or visit family and friends back home: Your allotted vacation benefits from your home country remain valid. If the usual vacation time provided in your host country significantly deviates from your place of assignment, we may pay out part of your allotted vacation benefits.
You are about to visit your home country? During longer international assignments, we will pay for two plane trips home for you and your family per year. In the event of a shorter international assignment, you may book a plane ticket home every three months at our cost.
One thing is for sure: During your assignment abroad, you will not only experience tremendous professional development, but also personal growth. And there is no need to worry about what happens after your assignment: We will also help you with everything involved in organizing your return. We will provide you with re-entry coaching upon request and support your partner, if necessary, with reintegrating into the job market at home.
Naturally, you will remain part of our personnel development and planning processes at all times: We will provide optimal reintegration and an appropriate follow-on position where you will benefit from your newfound experiences.
