How Investing in Language Training Can Help Assignees and Families Manage Time, Stress, and Readiness in the Age of COVID-19

Cartus-Intercultural-and-Language-Investing-in-Language-Training-in-Uncertain-Times-420-720x932.jpgThe anxiety associated with the unknown has made many of us reevaluate the way we manage our days and priorities. This is especially true for current or future assignees and their families, who—even under normal circumstances—are understandably preoccupied with the stress and logistics of their assignment.

One way that assignees and their families can constructively manage this anxiety and prepare to meet the challenges of life in their host country is by building new language and cultural skills. Cartus’ Online Language Training program offers lessons that assignees design according to their needs and availability, all with the guidance of a highly qualified language coach. For employers, this low-cost benefit offers a simple, cost-effective way to support your relocating population during a stressful time.
