for new hires as well as #peopleofdelaware
delaware’s International Mobility program focuses both on new hires as well as on delaware employees who are interested in temporarily assignment in different entity.
Mohamed Halil, for instance, was living and working in Tunisia when he was contacted by delaware recruiters for a vacancy in Belgium. After some consideration, he decided to take the plunge and embark on a new chapter in both his career and his life. “It feels like a natural next step for me. It also helps that my new colleagues are very friendly and willing to help”, Mohamed says. Sathishkumar, who moved from India to take a job at delaware Germany also praises his new colleagues and adds: “I like the better work-life balance I have in my new job. Adapting to life in Germany can be challenging, but as my German improves, I’m sure I will learn quickly.”
Richard West, on the other hand, had just started working for delaware USA when the opportunity arose for him to temporarily come to Belgium to join the SAP Warehousing team. “Everything was handled very smoothly”, says Richard. “I was quite surprised but also enthusiastic when the question came whether I’d be willing to come to Belgium.” Richard has also praised Kristine for her good work on helping him get settled in.
Michelle Cornu, who switched from delaware France to delaware Luxembourg also praises her colleagues as well as the internal support she received. Aside from that, she also appreciates another quirk that comes with moving to Luxembourg: “In Luxembourg, there are multiple cultures so it’s very diversified and very interesting to learn about them. I see many different ways of thinking and working which makes every day different from the previous one. It is really fun to hear 5-6 languages spoken at the company restaurant and in financial offices.”
