OurWorldConnect (OWC) is the first private network designed for people moving internationally and specifically built for companies and organizations. OWC’s software platform delivers tools and resources for your international assignees in addition to the networking interface.
Relocating to a place where you do not know anyone can be traumatic. Assignees tend to join work-related social networks, but spouses and family members have a much harder time making local contacts. With OWC, international assignees and their families can connect to others moving to or living in the same destination. Connecting in advance of a major relocation can benefit the whole family and lead to a more successful assignment.
By making the latest self-help tools available to assignees and their families, companies can spend less time and money toward on-the-ground support services, and assignees get a quicker, smoother start acclimating to their new surroundings.
Empowered by the knowledge they tap into via corporate and destination networks, employee demands on HR and other resources are eased. Younger assignees maintain the connections they thrive on, and enjoy the tools and services that help the whole family adjust to the new home. Happy families translate to successful assignments.
OurWorldConnect is HR’s one-stop spot for assignee communication. Load company documents, forms, and policies online and they are just a click away from assignees and spouses. Post announcements on users’ home pages.
Users can create their own blogs, join in a selected list of relocation forums, and exchange private messages with HR and other users. Questions are posed to the OurWorldConnect community for answers.
Deliver Integrated Information
Our 170+ destination International Relocation Center is fully integrated into OurWorldConnect and existing clients can seamlessly migrate this service to OurWorldConnect. Integration means when a user chooses a new destination, their entire home page updates to that location, includes access to other users in that destination.
Our administrative software gives HR complete control over authorizing users, setting employee limits on network reach and access to various tools, such as blogs and forums. Unlike free sites, OurWorldConnect has no advertising, no open membership, and spam is blocked.
