Tell us, expats – is the grass greener?

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 30th 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.

Massive new independent expat survey now live online

The world’s largest survey of everything to do with expats and their experiences has finally been launched online, and is aimed at expatriates across the world, whatever their nationality.

Whether respondents decided to make the biggest move of their lives for reasons of work, for retirement, for quality of life or simply out of a change of scenery, the Expats Survey wants to hear all about it. The topics are wider than in most studies, and the presentation of the questions isn’t just a box-ticking exercise, as respondents are allowed to give their opinions on many questions in their own words.

Questions asked are about expectations and their fulfillment or otherwise, what expats most miss about their home countries and other unconventional requests. It also requests permission to ask more at a later date on tips and guidance for migrants heading for their new continents.

Of course, the results of the survey, due out some time in 2014, will be of help to commercial companies serving all aspects of expat living, but the authors are also hoping it can be used to help those living overseas in more mundane matters. As a result, the questions are aimed in a different way than in the annual surveys conducted by international banks.

The survey, conducted by i–World Research, is the most comprehensive and largest global research study ever undertaken on the growing phenomenon of emigration. It’s being led by the ex-BBC World director and Saatchi & Saatchi’s former research director, has no links to any government organisation anywhere and will not share information with third parties.

The first section, Migration and Lifestyle, was released 15 July, and will be followed by Retail and Finance on 10 September and Travel and Health on 5 November. All three section will be live until 31 December, giving as many expats as possible a chance to make their views known.
