Helping spouses settle into a new life abroad with their working partner
Ease of global mobility has become an increasing challenge to any organisation looking to expand their operations internationally. Aside from individual in-adaptibility and inadequate compensation schemes, considerations on the impending difficulties to be faced by the trailing spouse were cited as the 2nd highest reason professional turn down relocation job offers.
WiseNet Asia Talent Transition can eliminate hurdles faced by the trailing spouse. Our spousal relocation services help them; not just to gain a deeper understanding and adapt to the culture of the country they are relocated to – but also ensure they set a direction and the goals they would like to achieve out of this relocation experience.
Our talent transition team works closely with families relocating, to make the transition of relocating, a welcoming one. We equip the trailing spouse career skills and knowledge to help them land a career and alleviate the financial burden of the relocating employee.
WiseNet Talent Transition Program has identified two main categories of spouses for a tailored consultative approach.
Trailing Spouse Relocation
When relocating an employee, taking care of the comfort of his/her family (particularly a trailing partner) is just as important as ensuring the employee enjoys a smooth transition. Adaptability – to a new community, new home, new friends, new environment and the new job of the working spouse – is the critical success factor to ensure a smooth transition.
Working Spouse Relocation
The relocation process for an employee and his/her spouse is a tedious one. A working spouse can wield a significantly larger influence in the employee’s willingness to relocate, as compared to a trailing-domestic spouse. WiseNet Asia’s Talent Transition offers a working spouse relocation program that aims to address the unique challenges faced by spouses. We have local and expert consultants that can help shorten the transition process drastically, persuade relocating employees towards a positive decision and improve the chances of a smooth, successful relocation.
Our spouse relocation program provides individualised coaching to relocating spouses in support of their transition efforts. With our partnership, we can increase the retention of new or existing global mobility employees, by providing support to the trailing spouse – helping them streamline their job search and secure their next local position successfully.
Other components of the working spouse relocation program include (but not limited to):
- Assessment to match the relocating partner with the most suitable talent transition consultant
- Transition planning and job search preparation
- Career evaluation, decision making and goals alignment
- Professional resume development services
- Market research and target employer list development
Just as employees are any organisation’s most valued commodity, their spouses, too, deserve the utmost attention in their relocation support.
