Crown World Mobility Event in Basel on November 7th: “New focus on the accompanying partner – The Trailing Spouse”

Crown is happy to announce its first mobility event in Basel on Thursday November 7th which will be conducted in cooperation with Rylla Resler (co-author of The Trailing Spouse).

The importance of caring for the accompanying partner in relation to relocation is clear. How to do this most effectively is an ever evolving topic. It’s hard to know where to start!

First, it’s critical to highlight the expanded definition of an accompanying partner. With the term “Trailing Spouse” more than a decade behind us, we now know that the accompanying partner is more frequently than not someone with a career. Here we will look at some of the challenges the spouse faces, and the creative solutions that our Global Mobility Programs are putting into practice: partner career search support, intercultural training, local job opportunities, diverse peer networking communities, policy and communication updates, and more.

After the event, all participants will have access to Fossil’s outlet shop and be granted a voucher of an additional 20% on outlet prices.
