Moving to a new country is a big change, and there’s a lot of emotion involved. Often, there’s an initial period of exhilaration, followed by the dreaded “culture shock”. And no wonder – being surrounded by an unfamiliar culture, different customs, and a foreign language 24/7 can be disorienting. Feelings of anxiety and confusion are common.
Culture shock can have a negative impact on your employee, on their family, and on your company. We help you avoid this by acting as a trusted guide for your new hire or transplant, welcoming them to Swedish society and showing them how everything works in their new country.
We’ve found that a proper orientation can alleviate much of the uncertainty and allow your employee to settle in and feel more at ease in their new culture.
