How to Celebrate July 4th Abroad

It’s hard to believe that July 4th is right around the corner. We are pretty excited about it here at XONEX Relocation. We tend to be a patriotic bunch, which makes it all the more fun.

But, as I start to make my own plans for next week, I can’t help but think about all of the families who are on international assignments right now.

When you’re moving a transferee and his or her family, what do you really want from the people who you have trusted to help them?  Of course you want good information, guidance and services – these are the “must-haves” that any good relocation company should provide.  But, when you consider what is going to make a difference in the lives of your transferees – and the success of your program – I would say that it’s critical to find people who genuinely care.
