THE CITY AND ITS RESOURCES

Landmarks, where to live, neighborhoods preferred by international residents, services available in the region (Supermarkets, Drugstores, hospitals, Clinics, bilingual Doctors and Veterinarians, Shopping Malls, Banks, Car dealerships etc.), how to get around safely and the best schools.

CULTURAL ISSUES

We guide the expatriate regarding cultural matters to make his / her quick adaptation easier.

Cross Cultural Training

Research shows that in international transfers Foreigners or Brazilians who do not participate in a training of cultural adaptation often end their assignment in the country with their performances below the company’s expectations.

The main causes for failure are the difficulties faced in personal or family adaptation and dissatisfaction at work or with the co-workers.

That’s why we offer a personalized intercultural training for expatriates and their families. Its content is very rich as it encompasses all aspects involved in the expatriation process.

This way they can learn to build a bridge between the country of origin and destination, making it easier for them to understand the new place and its population. Our training not only provides individuals with greater security and peace of mind by facilitating on-site adaptation, but also strengthens interpersonal relationships, both inside and outside the workplace. Here is a list of the content we offer:

  • General information about Brazil (history, demographic data, particularities of each region, etc.)

Language Courses

The language is one of the greatest barriers that the expatriated and his family must overcome. To make the transfer smoother, we can guide/ offer courses taught by renowned language schools. The program is structured in a personalized way, to better meet the needs of each person.

Personal and Traffic Safety

Being an item of extreme importance for the transferee, we work in partnership with a company specialized in this area. Through seminars involving the whole family, some basic security notions are given which helps eliminating or mitigating the risks to which all are subjected daily. In addition, various techniques are taught to face a real risk.
