Entsendungen von Fach- und Führungskräften ins Ausland

Entsendung ins Ausland 

Since the early 1980s until today, the main reason for the failure of expatriate assignments has been the lack of integration.

- It's time for new ways -



We support companies that send their specialists and managers with their partners or families to countries with an increased security risk and/or major cultural differences for a longer period of time.

schwierigkeiten aufgrund kultureller Unterschiede sind häufigste Ursache für das Scheitern von Entsendungen.”

Why do expatriations fail?

There is hardly any other topic on which, from the early 1980s to the present day, the most diverse authors have agreed in their studies, publications, dissertations, and books as much as on the question: Why do expatriations fail? Why do they not bring the desired success?

Why has been the problem not solved yet?

For many, many years, a posting that was not cancelled was seen as the benchmark for a successful posting. Criteria such as labour productivity, motivation, loyalty, and turnover rates hardly played a role. This has only changed in recent years. Today we know: Abandonment is only the tip of the iceberg of a failed posting.

Why did I develop the program?

My name is Tom Ziemski, a former expatriate and the CEO and founder of Expat-Next-Generation. I created the Expatriate Protection and Integration Program, EPIP for short, for three reasons:

  • I almost failed as an expatriate myself.
  • The problems that lead to failure are always the same, without a sensible solution.
  • Sending expatriates with their partners and families cannot be compared to any other type of assignment. It is unique and requires a special service.
