Handelsblatt: Wie eine XING-Tochter Konzernen dabei hilft, sich besser um ihre Mitarbeiter im Ausland zu kümmern
Politicians across the world with a reputation for separation are chasing after votes – with increasing success. For companies, this evolution raises concerns, as they are dependent upon sending highly qualified employees on global assignments. As the motivation to relocate abroad wanes, employers increasingly rely on InterNations, a social network for expats. Until now, each expat had to pay the membership fee out of their own pockets. Now, InterNations is entering the B2B market and offering a membership which is paid for by employers. More...

HR Technologist: InterNations launches new global talent mobility solution
In 2018, millions of professionals relocated to another country, because they were hired by an international employer or sent on a global assignment. Employers pay a considerable amount of money to organize relocations.

Die Welt: Firmen fördern das Wohlfühlen im Ausland
For expats, i.e. professionals working abroad, settling into the new environment can cause problems. Especially the spouses who join them for life abroad can have a hard time making new connections.

Personalwirtschaft: Expats wünschen sich mehr Hilfe beim Einleben
A new report explores how expats – both international assignees, international hires as well as relocating spouses – cope with their relocation and if they are happy with the support which they receive from their employers. It seems as if there is room for improvement, especially with the social integration. More than three thirds of employees on global assignments, international hires and relocating spouses are generally happy with their life abroad. However, needs are not met which would make the experience abroad and the settling in easier.

Haufe.de: Expats fühlen sich sozial isoliert
Employers are offering a large choice of services to support employees during a relocation. In terms of employee satisfaction, most efforts to support expats are successful: More than three quarters of all expats who were questioned for the report Expat Insider 2018 said that they were generally happy with their life abroad. However, the report also states clearly where relocation requires action: More than sixty percent of the survey participants would like to receive more opportunities for socializing. The need for networking opportunities and a membership in an expat organization is equally strong. If there are no opportunities for social interaction, this has a direct impact on the employees' well-being. More...

The term "Global Talent Mobility" keeps gaining momentum.  It refers to people who, for professional reasons, move abroad and start a new life.
