Repatriation Programs


More than 60 % of repatriating employees experience reverse culture shock. 

Moreover, 40-50% of expatriates leave their companies within 2 or so years following a long-term international assignment.

Companies make large investments in relocation and successful repatriation is an integral part of the relocation cycle.

The Purpose of the Program is to:
  • Assist repatriating employees and their families to successfully re-adapt to their own cultural environment after having lived and worked overseas.

  • Prepare employees for the changes that would have taken place during their absence in their former work environment and social structure.

  • Assist in re-adjusting to a “daily life” which may seem less interesting, challenging and exciting than their overseas posting.  


Reasons for Providing Repatriation Support:
  • Many organizations report losing up to 1 in 3 of repatriated employees, when adequate repatriation support is not provided.

  • The opportunity to capitalize on the extensive and valuable knowledge gained by the employees is lost.

  • The failure of an employee to successfully make the transition back to their home environment will result in a significant negative impact on the company, employee and family.
