Global Mobility, Intercultural skill-sets and
strategy consulting for your international goals
Have you experienced the immense benefits of synergies from global cooperation? Are foreign assignments for your specialists and managers part of your daily business? Then you are probably very familiar with questions like these: What are the current visa regulations in Brazil and which regulations apply to my employees going from the US to China? What should I consider when registering an employee with the authorities in Singapore? Will their driver's license be valid in the target country? “Small” processes such as registrations, driver’s licenses, child benefits and the housing search can eat up precious time. You know how it is...
We know: More than ever companies define success by entering international markets and by aiming at synergies generated by global cooperation. To a rising degree, this process requires the assignment of employees to worldwide locations. A target-oriented Global Mobility Management strengthens the sustainable success of the company and its employee – without losing sight of the family’s needs.

„Moving to Germany was an exciting and challenging experience for my husband and I as we were expecting our first baby two months after our arrival. Thanks to the personal and highly professional service we got from icunet, we not only found an amazing property, but also received the assistance we needed for our special family situation. Thank you, icunet. We could not have done it without you!“
