Partner assistance: made-to-measure coaching from specialist experts

A relocation is not just about an employee moving from one position in a company to another, it is also a life change for their family, especially for their partner. Given that expatriations or transfers within France most often fail due to family reasons, Human Resources are particular attentive to this aspect of the move.

MCF supports partners in their new social setting

As soon as the employee and their family set foot in their new country of residence, MCF Relocation is there to make sure they have everything they need to make the most of all the opportunities a relocation has to offer. They will immediately benefit from individual and/or group coaching sessions tailored to each person’s profile, experience and culture. The aim of these sessions is to reassure the partner or spouse about the life they will lead in the new country, to ensure they do not waste their time and most importantly, to give them the keys to coping with the different situations they will experience. Forewarned is forearmed and the lessons learned from these sessions will help avoid the panicking, fear and unhappiness that can result from a lack of understanding.
We can also intervene to support partners who have not benefited from these sessions should they experience any difficulties settling in.

MCF also provides partner career assistance

Deciding to up roots and move to a new geographical location is not always an easy choice, especially when your partner is employed and has to give up their job. It is not rare for Human Resources managers to have expatriation or transfer offers rejected or for these assignments to fail for this specific reason.
MCF Relocation can provide expert coaching to help the employee’s partner find employment. The partner is followed by a certified coach who supports them through the job hunting process. These services are intended to review their career to date, examine any training needs they may have, and rapidly move on to exploring their career prospects. The coach will follow them throughout the process until they either find paid employment or succeed in setting up their own business if they decide to become self-employed.
A successful transfer is not just about the employee’s well-being but also that of their spouse or partner.
