Trailing Partner & Dual Career Relocating Employees

Research confirms that the failure rate of new executive hires approaches 50%. 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 a new executive and often even more difficult for the trailing spouse and family.

The ability to adapt to a new community, new home, new schools, new friends, and (in the case of the working partner) another new job is critical for a successful relocation.

The career transition of the trailing spouse is a particularly challenging one.

Lacking both a local contact network and knowledge of the area’s economy and job opportunities, the individual is often frustrated by a long search.

Signet’s local experience and expert consultants can shorten the process dramatically and thus improve the likelihood of a smooth, successful relocation.
