International wellbeing

Wellbeing support for employees on international assignment

Global support when it’s needed

With increasing numbers of companies investing in sending people abroad to work, there is an increasing need to support employees and their families as they make the transition to life in a new country.

They will be facing unique challenges when relocating, from the stress of moving house to the loss of their social network. 

They will also need to deal with limited access to local resources, language barriers and the challenges of integrating within a new culture and community.

We’ve teamed up with expert providers to offer a range of international wellbeing solutions to provide your employees with all the support they need while working abroad.

 

Global employee assistance plan

From emotional support through virtual counselling, to physical support including health screenings, this wide-ranging EAP provides a lifeline for employees struggling while abroad.

It already offers support to more than 65 million people working in more than 200 countries worldwide.

It offers support for employees and their families both while working abroad, as well as help to adjust when planning to return home.

Working abroad means employees not only have to adapt to a new workplace and new colleagues, but also a foreign culture, new values, customs and language. Our global employee assistance plan helps reduce the stress.

Help when it’s needed

Our global employee assistance plan helps employees and their families with all aspects of an international relocation including the social, emotional and psychosocial elements of such a move. We can also help employees adjust back to their home country when their assignment ends.
