A double challenge for couples and employers

When one partner has the option to pursue a great job opportunity abroad, the question that will quickly arise after the initial enthusiasm is: will the other be able to continue his or her career in this new environment as well? For their book HERE WE ARE: The International Career Couple Handbook, Dr Paul Vanderbroeck and Jannie Aasted Skov-Hansen interviewed 30 couples that have managed to successfully combine two careers with international mobility. And no, this is not about relation therapy!

During this DBRT Geneva lecture they will present the results of this research and discuss:

  • Reasons why the number of double careers among expats is increasing;
  • Reasons why a different approach is needed for the couples and their employers;
  • Success factors and methods to combine double careers, international mobility and living together as a family;
  • What employers can do, in light of these developments, to attract and retain international talent.
