Bishop's Move are helping promote ‘The Expat Survey’ - with the aim to reach an audience of 10 million expats! We undertake hundreds of overseas moves for customers wishing to retire abroad, relocate due to work commitments, move nearer family or just keen to try a new lifestyle. Our International division also moves plenty of expats back to the UK. So whatever initiated your move, we are inviting you to share your opinions on a variety of different topics relevant to expats.
Whilst the survey has the usual questions requiring you to tick boxes, the research study breaks away from convention and enquires about your experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent. Your input will make a valuable contribution to understanding how those residing outside their country of origin can be supported, so that organisations and companies that specialise in servicing expatriate communities and individuals can understand their needs better.
In a world of rapid change and volatile economies, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, many have chosen to move overseas in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side. For some a permanent move, for others temporary; in many cases for a life-style change, for others there has been no choice. Whether it has proven to be the best or worst decision you ever made, your feedback is essential.
‘The Expat Survey’ is being conducted by i-World Research, an independent research company and is the largest and most comprehensive global study ever undertaken into migration and expatriate life. Led by the ex-head of research for BBC World and ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi, it does not share any information with third parties and has no links to Governments whatsoever. It is entirely independent and promoted, but not sponsored, by almost 100 publishers and reputable companies servicing expatriates around the world, such ourselves, the UK's largest family-owned removals company Bishop's Move, as well as international accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK and specialist expatriate insurance company Clements Worldwide.
Conducted as an annual rolling programme the study comprises three surveys – ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ start date 15th July, ‘Retail & Finance’ start date 10th September and ‘Travel & Health’ start date 5th November 2013. Whilst the main thrust of each survey lasts 8 weeks, all surveys will remain live until 31st December so that a continual collection of responses takes place.
The first survey is now live, so you can enter today!
*Those that complete all three surveys are automatically entered into a prize draw to win £1,000, which you can opt to donate to charity if you wish.
