Solving dual-career and integration issues
Dual-career issues often are a key barrier to the success of an international assignment, so ensuring the right level of support for your employee’s partner or spouse and their entire family can dictate the overall mobility experience.
To facilitate successful assignments and motivate your employees, plan and design positive mobility experiences that incorporate the needs of their families.

2. Advisory services
Design positive mobility experiences
Like every family, each organization is unique with its own goals, needs and challenges. Mercer’s experienced team are happy to help you explore how to deliver the best possible relocation experience for your assignees’ spouses/partners and families.
Partner with us to work through:
Assignment cycle review
Leverage a Target Interaction Model to transform your mobility function and focus on the key interactions that really matter for your international assignees and their families.
Family experience-focused policy review
Analyze the different policy components to determine gaps or areas for improvement to deliver the best possible family experience.
Define the right approach to benefits among the available options. Should your policy allow for benefits swapping, cash conversion or the use of lump sums? We help you weigh the pros and cons and establish the optimal approach for your organization and your mobile employees.

3. Partner support
Deliver assistance to the partners or spouses of your assignees
Mercer, partnering with NetExpat, deliver fully customized assistance programs designed to support the partners and spouses of your mobile employees with their career and integration needs.
Help your employees’ partners successfully navigate the job market in their new location with career counseling, CV creation support, mock interviews and networking skills development delivered by a local expert.
International integration support
Enable your employees’ non-working partners to stay empowered throughout their expatriation. A local expert will help them find their place in the local community by pursuing hobbies, further education and volunteering opportunities.
There are sensitive issues between your assignee and their partner that can prevent mobility if not properly addressed in the pre-assignment phase. We help them uncover their individual challenges, explore how they can support each other, and empower to make well-informed decisions through dedicated coaching sessions.
