In addition to providing international assignees with cultural orientation programs targeting countries and regions across the globe, Across Cultures offers a range of destination services assisting companies and their international employees in relocating to Austin, Texas.
As ambassadors of our city, we can make all the difference in the decision making process of an employee to accept an assignment in what is continuously ranked as one of the best cities to live and advance one's career! As our local clients' advocates, we will help promote the Austin area as a great place to live and work while addressing any issues or concerns that the relocating employee and family may have.
Once the assignment has been accepted, it is crucial to ensure its success by helping the relocating employee and their family adapt to their new environment. As cultural experts we will provide assignee and family with a personalized intercultural training program which focuses on developing culturally appropriate business practices, a mindset and communications skills, that will allow them to thrive both professionally and personally in their new environment.
New expatriates face a number of adjustments all at once. They not only have to get used to a new job and adapt to a new culture, they also need to learn their way around, figure out how the system works, and take care of the many initial logistical and bureaucratic hurdles.

- Assistance with securing a home
- Assistance with finding a school, if applicable
- Assistance with obtaining a driver's license
- Assistance with opening of a bank account
- Providing information on vehicle registration and insurance
