Is the grass really greener on the other side?

Enter the world’s largest expat survey for your chance to WIN £1,000 cash

Calling all expatriates of any nationality! Have you moved overseas for a better quality of life for your family, to pursue a career opportunity or simply for a change of scenery to the place you always adored? If you have then we really want to hear from you and this is the opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.

Whatever initiated your move ‘The Expat Survey’ invites you to share your opinions on a variety of different topics. Whilst there are the usual questions requiring you to tick boxes, the research study breaks away from convention and enquires about your experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

Your input will make a valuable contribution to understanding how those residing outside their country of origin can be supported, so that organisations and companies that specialise in servicing expatriate communities and individuals can understand their needs better.

In a world of rapid change and volatile economies, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, many have chosen to move overseas in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side. For some a permanent move, for others temporary; in many cases for a life-style change, for others there has been no choice. Whether it has proven to be the best or worst decision you ever made, your feedback is essential.

‘The Expat Survey’ is being conducted by i-World Research, an independent research company and is the largest and most comprehensive global study ever undertaken into migration and expatriate life. Led by the ex-head of research for BBC World and ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi, it does not share any information with third parties and has no links to Governments whatsoever.

It is entirely independent and promoted, but not sponsored, by almost 100 publishers and reputable companies servicing expatriates around the world, such as the international accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK and the specialist expatriate insurance company Clements Worldwide.

Conducted as an annual rolling programme the study comprises three surveys – ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ start date 15th July, ‘Retail & Finance’ start date 10th September and ‘Travel & Health’ start date 5th November 2013. Whilst the main thrust of each survey lasts 8 weeks, all surveys will remain live until 31st December so that a continual collection of responses takes place.

Those that complete all three surveys are automatically entered into a prize draw to win £1,000, which you can opt to donate to charity if you wish.

Please go to www.theexpatsurvey.com to find out more and complete the first survey which has now gone live.

Clements Worldwide Backs Massive Global Expat Research Initiative

Clements Worldwide, leading provider of international insurance solutions for expatriates, proudly plays key role in one of the world’s largest expat research programs. Expressly developed to garner insight about key trends and issues affecting individuals living outside of their country of origin, the Expat Survey program will reach an anticipated audience of more than 10 million expats around the globe.

The global expat community, estimated at 220 million individuals, regularly faces dynamic and complex challenges. Under the direction of ex-head of research for BBC World and the ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi, the Expat Survey delves into the most predominant challenges affecting the lives of expats:

Migration and Lifestyle
Retail and Finance
Travel and Health

Launched on July 15th, the Expat Survey aims to compile useful, research-based intelligence about the challenges of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories. Those who complete the survey at theexpatsurvey.com will be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000 to keep for themselves or to donate to a UK charity of their choice.

Dan Tuman, senior vice president of sales at Clements, remarks about the positive impact of the Expat Survey: “Clements is committed to delivering world-class insurance solutions and excellent customer service to our valued clients, located in over 170 countries. With the information garnered from the Expat Survey, we expect to help expats even more during their overseas experience. Clements is proud to be a collaborative partner and offer our support this valuable research initiative.”

Global Expat Research Initiative Underway

A group of businesses is undertaking what they describe as “the largest global research program into those living outside their country of origin,” with a total of three questionnaires on migration and lifestyle, retail and finance, and travel and heath.

The organizers believe that the project, entitled Expat Survey 2013, will give a clear picture of migratory trends and the reasons for them; provide a more detailed understanding of lifestyle and consumer behavior among expatriate communities, including which media they respond to; and raise awareness of the “expatriate market” and the products, services and media that service it. The project aims to provide intelligence on expatriates in all nationalities and territories, and to reach an audience of more than 10m expats around the world.

Collaborative partners in the project include the insurer Clements Worldwide, the accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK, the media agency Max Media, and the removals and storage company Bishop’s Move. The project is under the direction of Keith Donaldson, who is CEO of the Joint Industry Committee for Regional Media Research and a former head of BBC World.

Expats are invited to participate in the survey via a designated website, and those who take part will be entered into a prize draw worth GBP1,000. The first questionnaire, on migration and lifestyle, became live on July 15. Retail and finance, and travel and health, will be launched on September 10 and November 5 respectively. All surveys will remain open until the end of the year.

Dan Tuman, senior vice president of sales at Clements, was quoted as saying that “with the information garnered from the Expat Survey, we expect to help expats even more during their overseas experience. Clements is proud to be a collaborative partner and offer our support this valuable research initiative.”
