Moving to a different country can be daunting. Especially when family (kids) are moving with you. New language, new house, new schools, new friends, new foods, new rules. And those are just a couple of the things that change or need to be taken care of.
Having been through this experiences a few times ourselves we decided to help out. YEP was started, offering tailored and in person assistance to expatriates and their families. Our services already have helped to create comfortable landings for tens of families. This has proven to a succeful recipe for a strong start of the expatriate assignment, greatly benefiting the employee and employer alike.
We do not stop with supporting the family once you arrive. Our experience is that especially the spouse of the expatriate benefits from personal support over a period of time.
We focus on family happiness in the new environment through a personal, yet confidential, approach with the following services:
