mBARC’s Global Readiness Program: Don’t Leave Home Without It
Employees assigned to a new office overseas or new location to build or expand a business, train a sales team, mentor their local replacements, or implement new technology, have a much greater chance of success when they are resilient and engaged, have an understanding of the culture, access to local resources, support for their spouse and/or family, a clear-eyed view of the threats and risks associated with their location, and are trained in security protocols and crisis management/response.
mBARC’s Global Readiness Program is based on years of developing and coordinating support for global workforces – and perfected through the program we implemented for a Fortune 500 organization that supported and guided segments of their global workforce through the uncertainties of the past two years. Our Navigators – credentialed professionals with extensive prior experience in international business and travel – provide each assignee (and their family) with personal support and service tailored to their needs, which includes:
- Identifying potential “red flags” prior to departure.
- Negotiating the new work and country/cultural environment.
- Establishing a healthy work/life balance.
- Building positive social connections outside of work.
- Locating/organizing in-country services.
- Periodic “stay interviews” to retain top performers and extend their assignments.
Safeguarding Your Investment
Expatriate assignments cost between 1.5 to more than 4 times what local employees cost. The most prevalent reason for assignee failure* is the lack of a comprehensive support system in the host country and disconnection with one’s home environment.
