Are you a happy expatriate? Did you move away from your country for a better quality of life, for a career opportunity or just because you loved the scenery of your new home? i-world Research, the research division of the London based agency, Max Media International, has launched three surveys for 2013, in what is the largest independent expatriate study ever.

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 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.

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

Max Media International told KTG that expatriates get a chance to win £1,000 cash regardless of their nationality.

Frustrated expat wives blame husbands’ employers

An article on the second part of the Expat Survey 2013 has been published on Trade Arabia, a business news information website.

“Expat wives shared a sense of bitter disappointment with their husbands’ employers for failing to appreciate the impact of contending with an unfamiliar environment on the family unit, said a survey.

They expressed a sense of being left to tackle the challenging dynamics of establishing a home and integrating alone, while the companies focused on getting their spouses settled into their new workplace as quickly as possible, the ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ survey conducted at theexpatsurvey.com revealed.

It provided a very detailed insight from those living outside their country of origin in almost 100 countries.

The initial part examined from where to where, why and when and now resident in their chosen community, what they like or dislike about their adopted home, what media channels they follow and use to stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world; and how easy or hard did they find it to integrate.

The survey said that in some cases relocation specialists were involved in catering for the career moves, but stand accused of not truly understanding and meeting their needs.

‘For some women, particularly those with children, the sheer stress of the corporate relocation bordered not only on being a career breaker, but almost a marriage breaker as well,” said Emma Wood, project director for the surveyor.

“These respondents are urging companies to take greater responsibility for getting the experience right not just for their employees, but their families too; and recommend that those contemplating a move use social media to contact other company employees, their spouses and other expats in their chosen destination to get the full lowdown on what their move might really entail,” she said.

Despite the initial upheaval, 71 per cent of respondents intend to remain outside their country of origin; while 22 per cent disclosed that they are considering moving on to a new destination and 8 per cent have an active plan-of-action to achieve this imminently.

Respondents praised churches for providing a lot of practical and spiritual support. The South Korean Government was highlighted as being a superb relocation facilitator and integrator; while Japan and China are sited as places where securing a work permit is painful unless your employer has clout or you have the right connections.”
