Strengthen Expatriate Mental Health

Why transform the global mobility

As I mentioned in this post during the early days of the pandemic my mother could not find yeast. Her village in Southern Germany had a yeast shortage.

Prevent Family Separation in Global Mobility Stop me if you have heard this before. Still, the general belief among people seems to be that separation rates among expatriates are higher than those among native (aka stay-at-home) professionals.

It is the bounty of nature in this country that attracts people. Also, the high standard and quality of living. The people of India are fortunate enough to have a glimpse of Switzerland through movies. It is a cliché to have a song shot in this country to add richness to the movie.

The Social Media Newbie Part 3 – From The Facebook to Facebook to Meta
