For individuals, expatriate assignments represent opportunities and challenges both professionally and personally. The assignments provide the novelty and excitement of moving to another country and operating in a different cultural environment. They can also provide an opportunity to acquire new language skills, develop cultural understanding, and see new parts of the world. However, adjusting to a new country can prove challenging for expatriates and their families.
Expatriate assignments present professional and personal opportunities to individuals but can also pose challenges. Our expatriate service provides the widest range of employer-employee support, including:
- reports to determine challenges operating in given countries
- health checks
- security checks
- schooling support
- family relocation support
- arranging benefits policies
- arranging specialist cover, such as kidnap and ransom insurance
- tax guidance
We develop customised policies for employers with international assignment needs, built on the basic premise that both the employer and the employee must assume responsibility to ensure that assignment goals are met.
Competitive expatriate compensation packages designed by Arthur J. Gallagher will include tax equalisation, COLAs, differentials, and allowances; design/placement of international medical, life, disability, and business travel accident plans; and consulting and design of offshore pension plans for expatriate and globally mobile employees.
Our expertise can help you manage your expatriate benefits programme simply and effectively, with one single point of contact.
