Also known as a “preview trip” or “look-see visit”, the area orientation is a valuable tool that has multiple applications as part of a relocation programme. It can help sell the new location to a prospective candidate, or be used as part of a group move induction. As well as allowing a relocating employee to select the correct area for home search and school search.

Accompanying Partner Assistance
Also known as “spousal support”, Accompanying Partner Assistance helps alleviate the pressure associated with relationships on the relocating employee.
Partner dissatisfaction is the most commonly identified cause of failed or early terminated assignments. Given that there increasingly more dual career families, the support given to the relocating partner can make the difference between a successful or failed assignment. Santa Fe has developed a range of services designed to support the partner through the relocation process and beyond. Depending on the location and requirements of the individual this can be focused on career/employment or further education opportunities, voluntary work, expat groups and associations all the way to simply helping them find their way around a supermarket.
