Your city is a mere dot on the surface of the planet. Whether it is home to a few hundred thousand inhabitants or several million, beautiful or extremely liveable, it can suffer from a common phenomenon affecting almost every place around the world.
Due to a shortage of qualified national professionals, the universal quest for international talent is ongoing and thus most likely affects the companies in your location. If your city lacks an attractive global image or enticing and comprehensive presentations, the companies in your city are unable to control the whole process of recruiting staff.
Positions, companies and financials become irrelevant if the factor of location fails to appeal to candidates during the hiring process. An alternative company will succeed and the candidate relocates to alternative city that is perceived to be a better fit. Positions remain unfilled and the consequences are both strategically damaging and costly to the company. The price is paid by the city too.
Imagine empowering companies in your location to take command of the missing factor of their employment offers. Help is at hand to present your location in the finest light to expats on the path to successful employee recruitment.
Many attempts to engage expats fail when a company’s prospective employee performs Initial research online and from afar. Browser bar results reveal expat-related topics that are mostly uncontrolled. They include social media where negative posts are omnipresent. False impressions, or none at all, add to the mix and the result becomes predictable.
Candidates remain unaware of the full spectrum of benefits your city has to offer expats. Your companies miss out on the potential to encourage new careers and fulfilled lives. The research continues with other cities located elsewhere.
Through taking control, your location can be presented in the best light to expats and companies can overcome early obstacles. A crystal clear image representation of the city is supported by a plethora of impressions along with factual information and an abundance of expat relevant topics.
Furthermore, ecosystems are strengthened for all stakeholders. A holistic concept interconnects local supportive systems and reveals all there is to know to enable expat integration over the longer term.
International employees and their families are empowered to feel at home and lead better lives. The likelihood of remaining in your city is increased, success rates improved and local company pressures reduced.

Talented individuals make choices. Far too many cities trust that companies in their city are capable of filling vacancies from abroad. They do little to support their local expat ecosystem. Meanwhile, other locations appear more desirable and win the competition of attracting and retaining international professionals.
The health and wellbeing of international employees directly affect their productivity and staying power. Hitting the ground running upon arrival is thus important for companies and cities alike. Thus the expat guides offer insights to healthy ingredients of life. Including sources of organic and vegan, a run down on sports activities as well as medical care professionals. And yes, vets too.
