Living and working abroad. Sounds glamorous—and maybe it is, if you’re posted to Paris or Vienna. But what if your company sends you to Santiago, Lisbon, or Montevideo? Many questions arise: Is it safe to go out at night? Do quality schools exist? How polluted is the air? Is public transportation handy? What’s the average monthly rent for a decent house? What inoculations should you get before you go? Can you find your favorite brand of toothpaste? The Global Manager’s Guide to Living and Working Abroad: Western Europe and the Americas answers these and many other questions expats will have about the cities that companies send employees to most often in the Western Hemisphere.
- The guide also includes information for corporate HR people: When a cost of living differential is appropriate and how to calculate it, how to obtain necessary work permits and visas, how to help employees stay as safe and secure as possible, and how to arrange for healthcare and insurance.
- The information is up to date and comes right from the fresh research of Mercer—the consultancy many other companies turn to for advice and the latest facts regarding working and living conditions in all corners of the globe. That's why this book will help expatriate employees feel at home in cities far from their native land whether it's Rome, Lima, or Montreal.
