When employee(s) and their family know what to expect from their new destination, they can make better, more informed decisions about where to live, how to educate their children, and even whether to move at all. All this makes it more likely that the relocating employee will settle in and be able to focus on their new role. It also reduces the likelihood that the assignment will fail due to the unhappiness of the employee or their family.
Sterling’s orientation / preview trips are fully customizable, providing information on housing and schooling options, key amenities, shopping, recreation, medical and banking facilities, transportation systems, typical living conditions and any special security concerns.
A trip can also be packaged alongside a home finding tour and/or familiarization service to help the employee decide where to live, and therefore move more quickly and smoothly.

- Comprehensive, informative and engaging support
- Invaluable pre-assignment consultations to help plan and prepare for a move
- Accompanied tours delivered by local experts in each market
- Complimentary access to a wealth of information through a secure online portal
