28th April 2011, Comments 0 comments

Welcome Day helps familiarize newcomers with the region and gives you your first official introduction to your new home.

The goal of the Welcome Day is to familiarize newcomers with the region and gives you your first official introduction to your new environment and its many facets. Various aspects of politics, economy, culture and tourism in Vaud and Switzerland will be presented in the hope of helping you answer the question - how to deal with everything here?

Welcome Day is an informal, friendly event where people from different companies and cultures can interact and discover the best way to truly feel at home here. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about anything that concerns you and receive useful documentation.

We will also present the advantages offered to expats through International Link, such as specific integration and career workshops.

We will conclude by enjoying a buffet lunch together to taste Vaud seasonal specialties.

The event is free of charge if your company is a member of International Link or in the process of becoming one.

Human Resources managers are also very welcome to attend and enjoy our presentation. We hope this Welcome Day will be a first efficient step in supporting expats. Please send the list of participants by 16 May to internationallink@cvci.ch.

Foreign individuals can also attend the Welcome Day. To register, please send an e-mail to internationallink@cvci.ch with your contact details.

The fee for foreign individuals or participants from non-member companies is CHF 200.
