Expatriate Spouse Support

You can demonstrate your commitment to your expatriate employees and gain competitive advantage in global talent acquisition and mobility via concrete and measurable spouse support. We know that it is easier said than done. We know exactly what spouses in search of professional engagement are looking for and thus provide the engagement that gives you the competitive edge. We thus help you reduce costs associated with assignment failure and decreased employee productivity resulting from lack of spouse adjustment and increase the value of your brand as a company that is responsible not only for society but for families too.

What we offer to trailing/expatriate spouses:

  • We source professionally relevant projects and volunteering opportunities based on the trailing spouse’s interests and availability.
  • If you have left a career behind and are looking for meaningful volunteer engagement, we help enhance your professional skills through relevant project placements that add towards your professional experience.
  • We enable acquisition of new skills by working on challenging and exciting projects.
  • We provide references for future employment opportunities.
