Since it’s likely that your new employees don’t know much about Sweden it’s important that the human resources department to follow these tips.

  1. Have Your Employees Get to Know their New Environment.
    Whether your new employee is a seasoned traveler or not, just upping up and moving is a task that anyone doesn’t enjoy, particularly if it’s to a new country. Plan to give as much helpful information to that employee that is possible along with local shopping, entertainment, churches, and schools.  Invite your new employee to check out the local area through Swedish expat blogs to get an idea of what to expect when they move there.

  2. Remind Your New Employee About What They Will Need for Immigration.
    Your new employee most likely has no clue when it comes to the laws of Sweden. It will be your job to bring this person up to date with this information and also talk to your employee about visas and work permit, and the fees associated with these items.

  3. Explain the Costs and the Economy to New Hires.
    According to Transitions Abroad, “regardless of whether your plan is to study, volunteer, or work abroad, the economic condition on your destination is an important consideration.” You will have to explain to your new employee about the average costs associated with the economy based on their current salary.
