New to a city and know no-one? Learn how MOVE Guides' social media integration can help you get ahead.

Here at MOVE Guides we are all serial expats, so we know how daunting it can be to uproot your life and move to a new city, country or continent, particularly if you know no one there! It will come as no surprise that a vast number of assignments fail due to employees' inability to settle well in their new city, and the challenges faced when they do not have a strong network to turn to for advice and friendship.

Developing new friendships and connections is an essential step to settling into your new city and life, yet sometimes it's difficult to know where to start. Fortunately we now live in an age of mass connectivity, with access to more social networking tools than there are hours in the day. Not only do these tools help ensure that you can remain well-connected to friends and family at home, but they can be utilized in the lead up to your move and once you arrive to help you settle in faster and feel like you're right at home.

At MOVE Guides we understand the importance of being able to identify and connect with a strong network of peers during your relocation for advice and tips to help you acclimate faster. To help fast-track your settling experience, we have built a social networking integration which allows you to discover which of your friends, colleagues or peers is now living in your new city. Keeping up to date with your entire network's whereabouts can be overwhelming, but with MOVE Guides' integration tool you don't need to lift a finger - your new local network is presented for you right in your MOVE Hub. Upon discovering that your old college roommate also lives in town, suddenly the world won't seem so vast anymore and you will be well on your way to starting a new circle of friends and feeling right at home.

Get in touch today to learn how you can help your employees to leverage their networks to settle in fast and get right to work.
