Company and HR heads that struggle to find candidates on the national stage have the choice on whether to take the alternative. Engaging international talent from abroad is a process of education for all stakeholders.

Many big players are versed in employing expats. Yet untold numbers of other large and small businesses are fear driven.

Expats are wise, adaptable and highly resilient. They leave everything behind to discover a new life with different rules and social norms. That is what we do. We embrace our new chapter with energy and positivity. We accept the challenge and even the surprises. Yet request respect, acceptance, understanding, support from our employers. We give back generously.

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.
