Relocation and Immigration is not a Piece of Cake…
The thought of relocating is thrilling; how wonderful it is to experience a new country, culture and build a new life. However, it also involves uprooting one’s life, leaving behind familiar surroundings, and often moving to a completely new country, climate and culture. The stress and uncertainties that come with relocation can take a toll on employees, affecting their performance and job satisfaction.
While Estonia is taking small steps towards making the immigration processes more understandable to the wider audience, going through the paperwork and recognizing all potential details in different scenarios is still quite tiresome and stressful – especially if having to go through it for the first time.
The Challenge of Retaining Talent Post-Relocation
One of the significant challenges organizations face when dealing with global talent is retaining them in the long run. It’s not just about getting them there; it’s about making sure they’re happy, settled and feel integrated in their new environment. Dissatisfied, unsettled employees (or their families) are more likely to consider leaving, and turnover can be costly for companies.
