An upcoming move is often a cause of stress and anxiety within a family. Taking a preview trip to the potential host-city creates a new sense of awareness that provides peace of mind. Visiting neighborhoods and exploring new communities allows the family to envision a positive living experience in a new environment. Detailed information is furnished to help better understand resources within the community.
Finding an appropriate place to live is the key to adjusting to a new community. Locating a home in the right area - with someone who knows the ins and outs of the city alleviates the stress, allowing to become a rewarding experience. GEMINET's Professional Relocation Specialist understand the dynamics of the city, such as commuting distances, appropriate schooling selection, and lease negotiations among others.
A critical step in "feeling" settled is connecting with your new community. The tenuous tasks of "being official", such as obtaining a driver's license, school enrollment, local registrations (social security, ID cards), etc. are necessary and less stressful with personalized assistance. Once these tasks are completed, the expatriate and his or her family begin to focus and enjoy their new home.
In order to ensure a greater sense of security during an expatriate assignment, GEMINET offers additional support for "tricky" issues that may arise. Do the children need to change schools or change doctors? Does the family want some guidance on planning a trip? What internet or mobile phone providers are available in the area? Is there an emergency that the family needs assistance with? Answers to questions like these can alleviate any undue stress to someone new to a community.
Receive in-depth information about the community and on-going support after your move. Through this program, GEMINET provides networking opportunities, community integration, and discovery of the local culture. Make new friendships in an local and international environment.
Major adjustments must be made when accompanying expatriates to new job locations. Spouse/partner assistance bridges issues such as career enhancement, community involvement, continuing education, and volunteer opportunities. This program is designed to provide a clear understanding of the options available in the new location.
