Recruiting global talent is a big adventure

for all parties involved. A global mobility manager puts in time and budget to recruit the best candidate, where the candidate does the utmost to proof to be the best fit for the job and is prepared to relocate. In addition, the spouses and/or family of the assignee are also a stakeholder, as their needs also have to be taken into consideration before and during the relocation

The preliminary phase of search, attract and acquire the right talent is a marathon in itself and when you think you have made it to the finish, it actually just starts. How does an assignee land within the company, will he/she and their spouse or family adapt to life in their new country, is the onboarding process a success, is it a sustainable relocation journey and how do you retain an assignee? In addition to all the requirements for the job, both the assignee and his/her spouse or family has also to integrate on a social level and create a daily routine in The Netherlands.


Social Integration

Would you like to distinguish yourself by offering a soft landing within your relocation package for both assignee and his/her support system: spouse or family? Offer dedicated family or spouse support before and during the relocation. This will contribute to the success of the assignment.
