Communicaid is delighted to announce that we have won the “Best Family Support Programme” at the recent FEM Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards (EMMAs). The annual awards ceremony, held in London, celebrates and recognises best-in-class companies and individuals working in the Global Mobility sector.
Best Family Support Programme
We are particularly delighted to have won this award for the family support we provide to the international assignees and accompanying families of FrieslandCampina. Being a good cultural fit was a key criterion of the rigorous selection process we went through to become FrieslandCampina’s intercultural and family support partner of choice.
The FrieslandCampina Global Mobility team take great care to ensure that the international assignee and their family are supported throughout their entire assignment – from initial discussions on a potential assignment through to in-country support and the return home (or next assignment).
Communicaid’s role was to seamlessly fit into this support cycle by providing pre-departure, in-country and repatriation support for the assignee and their accompanying partner and children.
Communicaid and Friesland Campina worked together to develop a full package of innovative training solutions for the diverse needs of the company’s assignee population and families.
A Personalised Approach
The training, coaching and support packages provided by Communicaid have made a significant impact on the long-term assignee population at FrieslandCampina. The deployment of carefully tailored learning and support packages that combine highly focussed instructor-led cultural training and coaching, with online country content and support, means every member of the family is supported through their entire assignment.
