Not everybody has what it takes to be a successful and productive expat. Even with the right candidate, everyone needs training. But the single more important reason expats fail is not even themselves: It is their families.The EAP is a program that aims to support expatriate workers and their families moving to new countries, helping them to settle in and understand the cultural and practical implications of their new life. The program focuses on three specific areas of importance.
