Return Home and Reintegration

The return home after a prolonged deployment abroad is seldom prepared. On both the company’s and the employee’s side, the topic is underestimated or disregarded completely. This view persists, even though everyone who has been working abroad for long stretches of time knows that the return is often worse than the deployment abroad itself. In many cases, those returning are cast aside in the company, without their newly acquired skills and experiences being taken into account. In the privat life, it often proves difficult to re-adapt successfully. Family and friends often show little comprehension and interest for the experiences of the returnees. This all but ensures frustration and resentment. A prepared return on the other hand can make for a productive implementation of the newly acquired skills and experience. Dr. Schreiner, who has plenty of experience in the field herself, offers seminars, lectures and personal coaching on the subject.

Current studies show that the return home goes smoothly in only 5-10% of the cases. While companies value the re-integration of their returning employees, the fewest actively do something for it. No wonder then, that every fourth employee leaves the company in his first year after returning, amidst disappointment and demotivation.
