Research confirms that the failure rate of new executive hires is close to 50 percent. Most of these frustrating and expensive failures are more the result of personal/family dissatisfaction than job-related issues.
Relocation is a difficult transition for the new executive and often even more difficult for the trailing spouse-domestic partner and family. The ability to adapt to a new community, new home, new schools, new friends, and in the case of the working spouse-domestic partner, another new job is critical for a successful relocation.
Many companies help in career transition for spouse-domestic partners. If companies ask clients to make life-changing moves or hire new talent, they do not want to face the cost of losing a person because of family problems or trailing spouse-domestic partner dissatisfaction.
The career transition effort of the trailing spouse-domestic partner is particularly challenging. Lacking a local contact network and knowledge of the areas’ economy and job opportunities, the individual is often frustrated by a long search. Kent Employment Solutions has local experience and expert consultants that can help shorten the process dramatically, and thus, improve the likelihood of a smooth, successful relocation.
