Large Group Training for Expatriates

Large Group Training for Expatriates

GROVEWELL has enjoyed many notable success in providing group training for business assignees and, in many cases, for their family members as well.

For example, one long-term client for our expatriate training services wrote, in part...

"Your programs have been outstanding.  [Your] on-going dialogue to assess the needs of our population and your individual follow-up with our employees is evidence of your interest in the success of each participantt in one of your programs. The programs are comprehensive and clear in content, while allowing for sharing among participants.  Our employees and their families consistently rate the cultural training programs among the best and most important aspect of their preparation for life abroad."

INTERCULTURAL TRAINING FOR ASSIGNEES AND FAMILY MEMBERS

Group training may be for the assignees only, emphasizing the characteristics of their host work environment and the business-relevant behaviors and values that foster collaboration and productivity there.  Or...

Group training may be for the assignees and their accompanying family members. Family training enables them all to adapt more readily to the social culture and daily routines of their host community, and to establish and maintain good relations with their new neighbors.

In our experience, most clients who request training ask for a single day.  In this case, we recommend post-arrival training. (On request, however, we will provide pre-departure training.)

 

Country-Specific Briefings

GROVEWELL also offers country-specific briefings for employees who are going abroad for relatively short durations.  Focused, tailored briefings are usually a half-day in length.  Briefings also can be provided for one individual. Finally, briefings may occur either pre-departure in the sending country, or post-arrival in the host country.

Very effective when conducted "live," such briefings may also occur by means of Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or other video-conferencing platform.
