The State of Expat Life in Sweden survey 2017/18
Reports of unfriendly Swedes recently don’t tell the whole story - what is life in Sweden really like for people moving here from abroad?
News and analysis provider Mundus International is working with us, expat membership site New in Sweden (NiS), to uncover the details of expat life in Sweden. We have interviewed expats that are here, the HR staff that organised their move and the Relocation Agents that supported them during the process. We have dug deep to find out the full story about emigrating here and hope that new arrivals can then make much more informed decisions about their move to Sweden.
In 2016, NiS interviewed 50 expats about the challenges they face here and asked them what they needed more support with. In October 2017, the combined forces of NiS and Mundus International asked NiS members, Mundus News subscribers and other expats what they think of life here and, this time, we asked the opinions of the HR staff and Relocation Agents too.
One of the areas we are interested in is the amount of private sector support that expats can get and what difference the support of an HR contact and/or Relocation Agent makes. Do the Relocation Agents make a big difference to both the time/effectiveness of settling in and to the strong emotions many feel when moving countries?
We are taking advantage of Mundus International’s report-writing skills to produce a very thorough, in-depth report into the state of expat life in Sweden, which will be released in January 2018.
The surveys are now closed. Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to take part in any other way.
