Living and working abroad. Sounds glamorousand maybe it is, if you're posted to Hong Kong or Sydney. But what if your company sends you to Bangkok, Warsaw, or Manila? 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: Eastern Europe and Asia answers these and many other questions expats will have about the cities that companies send employees to most often in Eastern Europe and Asia, as well as Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Though the heart of the book is the city-by-city listing, it also includes tips on preparing for the move, dealing with culture shock, staying connected to the home front, understanding the psychological aspects of living abroad, country-specific business and social etiquette, and other topics of concern to workers sent abroad. 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. Best of all, the information is up to date and comes right from the fresh research of Mercerthe 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 Seoul, Moscow, or Dubai.
