Global expat network InterNations Business Solutions has found that both overseas assignees and international hires, along with their families, fared less well in the UK than elsewhere in terms of support on offer.
Foreign assignees sent by their own companies to work in Britain were found to receive some benefits in terms of help with moving and financial compensation, but only two-thirds had their move organised by their employer, lower than the global average of 75%. Only 23% had help organising their move, compared to 43% globally.
They were also bottom of the list on receiving information on local life and intercultural training, and access to local networking. However they are among the foreign hires who find it easy to settle in their new country.
