Holland Expat Services is in the South of Holland the pioneer of personal expat services for the corporate world. We handle the “to do lists” of your expats and foreign employees.
Our service programs are designed for high usage by your expats so they are spending more of their time with you working. Companies tell us that the return on investment is a sizable increase in productivity, a more positive work environment and ultimately, greater profits.

Our service starts before the relocation. We offer you pre assignment assessments and preparation sessions for the expat, foreign employee and family. We check expectations. We inform them about what they can expect and we answer their questions. Preparation for the positive challenge in Holland is part of our service.

After welcoming them upon arrival we offer support for the first period of their stay. We arrange all permits, offer assistance in getting registered at the Municipality, getting a BSN, opening a bank account, we do home searches, we inform them about the Netherlands and their new home town, and much more.....

In the recruitment process the focus is mainly on the suitability of the expat for the new job. The suitability of the family as a whole for the challenge abroad is often not investigated.
By preparing for the move of the new employee many companies ensure that housing is arranged and that all necessary permits are in order. This is an important step in ensuring a good start for the expatriate. But on a practical and personal level, there are many smaller, but not less important matters.

Usually the first three months after moving to a new country are very stressful. The expat has a new job, lives in a new country, experiences a new culture and has lots of things to take care of. Experience shows that a thorough preparation, realistic expectations are critical success factors for the assignment. Besides that a smooth first three months are also crucial. A happy family and a minimum of practical hassles are the best guarantee for the expat to succeed in his or her new job. Worry-free employees can fully focus on the job.

The expat and his family do not speak Dutch in 99% of the cases. Although many Dutch people speak English, the language of the written media and on the Internet is still Dutch. This means that the information is hardly accessible for expats.

The additional costs of an expat or foreign employees are substantial. From a financial perspective it is therefore wise to do everything to make the assignment a success. Pre assignment assessments and preparation and personal support in the first months after moving to the Netherlands contribute tremendously to a successful assignment.
