Orientation Sessions for Successful Candidate Deployment: A Guide by AIM Consultancy

Orientation Session

We believe that a successful candidate placement involves more than just finding the right skill set. We recognize that cultural and social awareness are essential elements for a candidate’s successful deployment in a foreign country. That is why we provide every selected candidate with an extensive orientation session tailored to the country of their deployment. In this session, we ensure that candidates are thoroughly acquainted with the culture, laws, and ethos of the country they will be working in, to ensure a smooth transition and adherence to local customs.

Orientation Process

Our orientation process is structured to ensure that candidates receive a comprehensive understanding of the host country’s social norms, legal systems, and cultural practices. Here is an overview of the orientation process at AIM Consultancy:

Country Overview: We provide a detailed overview of the country, including its geography, demographics, and political systems. This information helps the candidate get an understanding of the country and its people.

Cultural Awareness: We educate candidates on the country’s culture, religion, social norms, and etiquette. For instance, if the country has a dominant religion, like Islam in Saudi Arabia, non-Muslim candidates are acquainted with the Islamic faith and customs to ensure they have a better understanding of their host country’s values.

Legal Compliance: We provide a detailed explanation of the country’s laws, regulations, and policies related to employment, taxes, and visas. We stress the importance of strict adherence to these laws to avoid any legal or social repercussions.

Safety and Security: We brief candidates on the country’s safety and security protocols and provide information on emergency services and contacts.

Company Policies and Procedures: We provide an overview of the client company’s policies and procedures, including employee conduct, reporting systems, and other relevant information.

Benefits of Orientation Session

The orientation session at AIM Consultancy provides several benefits to candidates and clients, including:

Better Cultural Understanding: Orientation sessions help candidates understand the culture and customs of their host country, which fosters respect and better communication with their colleagues, clients, and local residents.

Legal Compliance: Proper orientation ensures that candidates are aware of the local laws and regulations and the consequences of non-compliance. This helps the client company avoid any legal issues that may arise due to non-compliance.

Smooth Transition: Orientation sessions enable candidates to adapt to their new environment, which results in a smoother transition, faster productivity, and better employee retention.

At AIM Consultancy, we understand that cultural awareness and social integration are essential factors for a candidate’s success in a foreign country. Our orientation process is designed to ensure that candidates are adequately prepared for their deployment, understand the culture and laws of their host country, and can integrate into their new environment with ease.
