Living & Working in the United States

Employees of global firms who are on rotation need help adjusting to U.S. culture, managing a U.S. workforce, and communicating well in English. Working with families since the early 1990s, Varallo International helps employees and family members to:

  • Adjust to U.S. cultural norms
  • Integrate into U.S. workforce
  • Manage culture shock

Target Audience: International employees and families living and working in the U.S. on assignment.


U.S. employees and their families return from an international assignment and are sometimes not aware of reverse culture shock. A one-day program—prior to returning from the U.S.—can help them better understand the assimilation angst some will experience. We cover such topics as:

  • The stages of reverse culture shock
  • How has the U.S. changed
  • What are the new skills learned from a global assignment
  • Impact on children

Target Audience: U.S. employees and families returning from an international assignment.
