Ready to hire but concerned about language skills?
Country of Origin Training programmes – or COOTs – are a unique concept for employers to train incoming foreign workers during the recruitment phase. COOTS ensure that new recruits who are relocating have at least basic language skills and cultural understanding of the target country, as well as knowledge on arrival of their future workplace’s working culture. Unlike anything else on the market, COOTs have been developed in close collaboration with healthcare districts, rural health centres and university hospitals.
Worried that foreign employees’ integration into the work environment is going to eat up your resources?
At the heart of the COOT programme is our in-depth understanding of the role of language and culture as a part of a successful relocation. Training is provided on the basis of the specific organization’s needs, jargon and working guidelines. This pre-arrival training saves considerable time spent on introductory periods and settling-in. It is also flexible and can be matched to fit different budgets and targets. The starting point in the development of a COOT is always the employing organization’s wish to make long-term and committed recruitments.
Want to attract specialists to your organisation?
Our COOT concept has been developed to cater to the specific needs of the healthcare sector, but can be applied to any industry. It can function as a support for an individual recruitment or as part of a bigger recruitment campaign. It also acts as a selling point for new employees, becoming part of the relocation package.
When the world is not enough…
A COOT can be executed cost-efficiently just about anywhere in the world. Our extensive network enables us to offer training almost anywhere in the world directly from the language of the country of origin into the target language.
