It’s important that employees feel familiar with their new surroundings as soon as possible when they undergo a corporate relocation. When an employee is correctly orientated in a new location, they can be more productive and confident when moving around their new place of work. We offer a complete corporate relocation service that includes familiarisation tours and orientation support. Our familiarisation services are provided by local experts and can be tailored to the individual needs of your employees to provide them with the most useful knowledge of the local area.

What Is A Familiarisation Tour?

A familiarisation tour is an educational trip around a new town or city that will show employees where everything they need is. During a familiarisation tour, employees will be guided around the relevant local area by an expert who can answer any questions they may have and point them in the right direction of important local amenities and facilities such as schools, transport, shops and medical facilities. These tours are a great way of making sure employees feel comfortable and orientated in a new environment when part of a corporate relocation. A familiarisation tour will also make sure that they do not have to waste time finding the best spots as they can simply take recommendations from a local expert.

Why Use Klippa’s Employee Orientation Services For Your Corporate Relocation?

Klippa’s employee orientation services extend well beyond a simple tour of the local area. We provide your employees with the information they need to feel comfortable prior to their move with individual discussions with a local guide in the area. Our local specialists will also be able to tailor their advice to the employee’s specific needs and show them the places that really matter to their own personal well-being. Once your employee is familiar with the local area, we can also assist with wider aspects of their move including support for home-finding, settling-in and school searches.

Not only does a familiarisation tour and employee orientation support demonstrate that you care about your employees, but it also saves you time. Klippa will fully manage the orientation process so that you do not have to take time out of your busy schedule to show employees around or answer questions that they may not actually have the best answers to. Instead, you can simply trust our local experts to pass on their knowledge and wisdom and help them feel happy in their new place of work.
