This leads us to question “Why Migrant Employees Leave” ?
- The majority of the departures reflect unsuccessful family resettlement.
- As one might expect, social life had the highest ratings of being worse or much worse (nearly 40 percent).
- Housing also had a less favourable rating with about 30 percent saying it was worse or much worse in their current situation.
- Other reasons include migrants not having a local support network, missing their home countries, and their family.
This further emphasises “Why a Focus on Family so important”.
A successful resettlement depends largely on the new employee’s ability to settle and get working quickly and effectively, knowing that their loved ones are being looked after.

- Resettlement Support ensures each family member’s individual requirements are addressed.
- Resettlement Support enables your new employee to concentrate on work requirements knowing that their family's requirements are being fully addressed.
