Improve Global Talent Retention Through Social Integration
With a fast-changing and highly competitive global work landscape, employers need to ensure they remain competitive in the global war for talent. They need to think outside the box when it comes to recruiting and retaining global talent, carefully considering the support and benefits to offer — to reduce and prevent the risk of employee turnover and ensure international talent retention.
Relocating for work has a strong influence on a private level which cannot be ignored. Beyond work, global employees need to build a new social network and daily routine. Therefore, it's part of the employer's responsibility to support employee social integration abroad to improve the chances of talent retention. Findings from the Expat Insider 2019 Business Edition indicate that not having enough socializing opportunities and the lack of a personal support network are top reasons for the unhappiness of international hires. Moreover, a quarter of international hires are considering returning home earlier. Employers can reduce the risk of turnover by supporting social integration abroad and making international hires feel better supported through improved employee benefits.
InterNations Business Solutions can help you to:
- Save time by offering international employees peer-to-peer support outside work.
- Reduce the risk of turnover by putting the family matters of your employees in focus.
- Ease the complex task of integrating employees and their spouses abroad, and guarantee successful foreign assignments.

It addresses the core challenges that expats employees face and reduces the global mobility and HR workload — turning it into a true win-win-solution for employers, expats, and their partners.

Key Insights to Support Expats Where They Really Need It
The Expat Insider 2019 Business Edition aims to provide an expat perspective on global mobility and international recruiting. The goal is to assist global mobility and HR professionals to better understand the needs of Foreign Assignees, International Hires, and Relocating Spouses and to manage resources more efficiently.
The report is based on the Expat Insider survey, one of the world’s largest surveys on expat life, with 20,259 expats from across the globe participating in 2019.
The Expat Insider 2019 Business Edition focuses specifically on the following three expat types on a global level, based on their main reason for relocating: Foreign Assignees (respondents that were sent abroad by their employer), International Hires (respondents that found a job abroad on their own or were recruited internationally), and Relocating Spouses (respondents that moved abroad together with their partner for their partner’s job). The report provides insights into how these expats experience life abroad — from the relocation support they receive (and want) to how easily they settle in, the aspects making them happy (and unhappy), and their family setup.
