Swiss businesses: Establish a connection with the over 22,000 Americans living in Switzerland and those coming soon
Switzerland is one of the American expat's favorite destinations. The high standard of living, excellent schooling facilities both private and public, superb healthcare, a great work-life balance, breath-taking landscapes...the list is long.
Today, more than 1,600 American companies operate in Switzerland, from early stage innovators to well-known multinationals. American firms employ more than 88,000 people in Switzerland from the US and all over the world; 3M, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Maxwell Technologies, MedTronic, Procter & Gamble, just to name a few.
New and challenging needs
When American executives, researchers, engineers etc. and their families move to Switzerland, they have many new and challenging needs. Relocating, home-hunting in Switzerland, completing immigration requirements, schooling for the children, finding a job for spouses, learning the language, opening a Swiss bank account, fulfilling Swiss insurance needs, getting Swiss and US tax advice (to make sure they get things right, right from the beginning) and meeting new friends...again the list is long.
American companies require all kinds of corporate services to get established and run their day-to-day operations, from start-up support, legal advice, real estate requirements, employee recruitment, just to mention a few. American companies also like to assist their American employees in relocating smoothly.
Wouldn't it be great if...?
As an American, wouldn't it be great to find a resource listing Swiss companies and service providers, happy to work with Americans with an understanding of the challenges and needs in the new world? As a Swiss company and service provider, wouldn't it be great if there was a way to establish a connection and tap into the specific group of expat Americans and their families living and working in Switzerland?
