How much does your international hire cost your company?
ARE RELOCATION PACKAGES ENOUGH TO ATTRACT AND RETAIN FOREIGN TALENT?
Offering your new employee relocation packages such as housing and schooling are helpful, but to help a family become more self-sufficient in Denmark and help them feel at home you need to take a look at the whole picture. Not just the individual employee. Are they single or do they have a family? All assignments are different and it takes a personal and a hands-on approach to help these internationals and their families really succeed in making Denmark their new home.
One of the major reasons for a premature leave is due to the expats family not being able to adjust to their new location and this cost’s companies greatly.
FOCUSED EMPLOYEES RIGHT FROM THE START
If your new international hires are too busy concentrating on settling into their new environment, how can you expect them to concentrate on their new job? All international hires have a great number of questions, but they have nobody to ask. Normally these questions would be directed to your HR department or towards your employees’ colleagues. Not only occupying their time at the office but their colleagues time as well. Let’s say for example your new employee spends 1 hour a week trying to figure out NEMID or Digital signature, search where the closest drycleaners or pharmacy is. Google translating letters from the bank and skat etc… That’s a lot of focused man-hour's lost!
Offering affordable “in house” consultations for International employees new in denmark.. Customized, personal consultations focusing on the individual assignment types. Short-term or long-term assignments need different attention. A single male/female wouldn’t need Spousal Care, but may be interested in Danish lessons or information on local sports clubs, where a family with children may need information about pediatricians or activity centers, volunteer programs or Mom’s groups.
