Orientation

Most employers recognize that a successful relocation depends on a planned decision made by the employee prior to accepting an assignment. An orientation program addresses the need to acquaint the assignee and his/ her family through a customized program of 1 or 2 days covering aspects such as local housing and schooling options, key amenities, local landmarks and transportation systems. The orientation kit provided is a great way to share information about the new location with friends and family back home.

 

Verto Consultant does a  Pre Arrival Needs Analysis to understand the specific needs of the assignee and his family. On the appointed day The Consultant will meet & greet the assignee at the hotel, the apartment or the office and shares the ‘Welcome to India’ City information pack. In the course of the preview trip the assignee is introduced to practical and cultural aspects of life  - super markets, shops, banks, shopping areas, schools, clubs, hospitals, restaurants, crèches and day care center, sports centers medical & health facilities, transport, clubs, lifestyle, housing etc. Specific concerns outlined in pre arrival needs analysis or sought during the preview trip are also addressed. Specific focus is given during the city/ area tour to residential areas to inspect and understand housing styles and rent values. At the end of the orientation program, the transferee is well-prepared and motivated for his / her upcoming relocation.

 

 The consultant stays in touch with the family for a period to address any needs that they may not have identified prior to the orientation.
