Assignee Wellbeing Workshop Series

Living abroad is challenging. There are so many decisions, so many things to think about. It can lead to stress for assignees and their family. Not just during the physical move but in the months and years after as well. Research has clearly demonstrated that unhappy and unsettled assignees and their family unit play a key role in failed international assignments.

However, assignees need not feel overwhelmed. This workshop series is designed for assignees and their partners and makes for a valuable contribution to your employee wellbeing, experience and retention strategies.

This Workshop Series Explores A Variety Of Topics Affecting Families Living Abroad


The biggest fear with assignees and their family is not seeing loved ones again. The pandemic has prevented people from being close to those they love and the fear continues to exist.

This workshop is designed to acknowledge the fear, it is normal, but it doesn’t have to overtake the relationship with our family. There are practical steps that can be used to maintain strong connections with ‘home’.


Raising a family is challenging, doing it in a foreign context can be overwhelming. Yet, we need not succumb to the overwhelm.

There are simple strategies that you can apply every day that will not only make your life easier, but will support your family to thrive while living abroad.


The nature of expat life puts a lot of pressure on you and your relationship with your partner. And the state of your relationship has a huge impact on how you parent your children as well.

Discover the simple steps you can take to reduce the pressure on your relationship and connect on a deeper level.


One of the hardest things about living abroad is trying to make new friends, while often pining for what your ‘old’ friends are up to back home. Because it’s hard, we often latch onto the first person that makes us feel welcome. However, these are not always the best relationships for us while living abroad.

Learn how you can navigate finding friends and create your new community.


Your purpose is your motivation, the reasons you get up in the morning. It can guide the decisions you make, influence your behaviour and create meaning. Your purpose is unique to you. What you identify with as your path, may be very different from others. Your purpose can shift and change throughout life, especially with a big change such as an expat assignment. As a result, and for many our purpose becomes illusive.

Discover the steps you can take to define your purpose.


While children are resilient, they often struggle with change. There are steps you can take as a parent to support them through a change process – whether it’s the start of a new school year; or relocating to a new home.

Learn the steps you can take to reduce their overwhelm and support them.
