NEW: Partner Support Program

Talent retention isn’t just about your international employees, but the families they bring with them, too. An unhappy, unintegrated partner in the host location is the number one reason why an assignment fails or isn't accepted.

The Partner Support Program is a talent retention tool for employers in Sweden. It enables successful international assignments by helping accompanying partners get the support they need to adjust to life in Sweden.


Hire internationally. Longterm. Successfully.
