Holland is a Top 5 Country for Expats
Source: HSBC 3 October 2017
The Netherlands is one of the world’s best countries for expats, according to HSBC’s Expat Explorer report. Holland ranked as the best destination for families. In fact, 76 percent of Expats said the health and wellbeing of children in Holland were better than at home.
What is it like to work in the Netherlands?
The Netherlands has the best work-life balance of 38 countries tracked by the OECD Better Life Index, with only about 0.5% of Dutch employees regularly working very long hours as compared to the OECD average of 13%.
That means you can expect to live relatively close to work. Expect to ride your bike to the office, walk if you work outside the capital area, or take a bus.
With the excellent and reliable transport system, many Dutch people commute to the major urban areas of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and The Hague (a conurbation together called the Randstad). More than 60% of employees commute to work, with a half-hour’s ride each way considered normal – sometimes even on the bike.
But how to help internationals adjust to life in the Netherlands?
Many companies e.g. Akzo Nobel, IBM or Shell, have ramped up efforts to send employees around the world on international work assignments — even though Amsterdam has ranked as one of the good places to live for expats - some have struggled with adjusting to their new life in the city, eventually returning to their home countries with the assignment considered a failure, explains how VA-Company036 can help ensure a successful short- or long-term assignment in The Netherlands — and how to make it feel like home.
