The spoilt expat spouse / Share the Love Blog

Share the Love Blog wondered why it is so hard to change the image of the expat spouse. What can be done to become more recognized as what we are: amazing, brave, solution-orented globe trotters with a wide skillset?

“The definition of a successful career is way outdated and it is time to get rid of some tiring misunderstandings about expat spouses.” 

A beautiful, spot-on opinion piece on Share the Love Blog triggered by the comments below a German newspaper article about the career ambitions of Expat Partners in the Spiegel, Link: “When the career ends with the age of 27…” (click here to access). Interestingly enough those have been even more prejudiced than the article itself…

HR Sandbox goes Vienna

We are super excited! Hosted in the recently opened Talent Garden Vienna, VIE LESA co-facilitated a great kick-off of HR Sandbox goes Vienna on 29 May 2019.

HR Sandbox goes Vienna
HR Sandbox goes Vienna

HR Sandbox is a new, invitation-only HR format which was successfully introduced by here we are  in Copenhagen. It offers an experimental and experiential (hands-on) space for considering, exploring, discussing, developing and sharing alternative approaches, innovative possibilities and best practices for today’s diverse, flexible, mobile, “portable” and digital talents.

In line with VIE LESA’s vision of connecting like-minded spirits, we gathered a dozen stakeholders – from academia, international organisations, HR professionals and reps from other topic-related associations – around one table (set up in form of a sandbox) to  *co-develop fresh, creative perspectives *co-create new, practical solutions for (Global) Dual Career(s) and Talent Management in Austria.

It was inspiring to see that everyone participating was open to share their expertise, insights, best practice, pain points etc. and interested in co-creating (even more) opportunities / turning dual career challenges into opportunities.

After 1.5hrs of intense brainstorming, we agreed this advocacy type of event should become a regular one to contribute writing a new dual career narrative in Vienna/Austria. And Talent Garden’s tables branded CHANGE – INNOVATE – SHARE – PROGRESS were perfect to capture the essence of the “outcome”.

To be continued….
