Virtually-there is here!
Going-there'’s business model is to expand into locations where our clients need us and this is how we grow our global footprint. Similarly, our DC teams are often grown through networking and by developing connections. Tokyo GT veteran Izumi Koyabashi is one example of how our DC referral scheme led to a new career path.
Going-there Global Destination Services has over 340 trained Destination Consultants around the world. Working on the ground directly with assignees, our DCs have built a vast store of experience.
The spread of COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on everyday life. Many of us have already been confined to home and restrictions continue to tighten. But while assignees continue to move around the world or adjust to the changed conditions, Going-there remains 100% committed to the delivery of destination services to all assignees and their families.
With health and safety our priority and where support can no longer be delivered in person, remote assistance is being provided by all of our global teams. However, while the mode of delivery may have changed a little, our focus and passion hasn’t wavered. Our key services are now delivered as detailed below.
Emergency Departure Services to assist in the COVID 19 crisis
Going-there has developed a program for clients whose assignees are opting to depart their host cities with little or no notice, in some cases leaving their house keys under the front door mat.
If you have any assignees in a similar situation, and need help, contact Kelly Burtar, VP Global Operations, email address: email@example.com.
Arrival services have been suspended in the majority of locations. We continue to offer advice on local travel restrictions and conditions, market conditions and quarantine regulations where relevant. Where travel is permitted and safety can be maintained, we can also organise a secure pick-up from the airport and transport to the assignee’s accommodation.
We are also now ‘meeting’ assignees via Skype/WebEx conversations, Face Time interactions, telephone calls, email communications, for virtual tours, etc.

There has been much written in recent months about the potential impact on Corporate taxes by not monitoring business travellers and WHAT they are doing in specific jurisdictions (this author included)
Going-there has been lucky to have many excellent Destination Consultants who have worked with the company for long periods of time. They have brought energy, enthusiasm, imagination and compassion to their roles in helping relocating families and truly are the foundation of the Going-there quality service.
The Relocation Industry can be subject to external shocks and shifts that cause changes in assignment trends. For instance, the drop in oil prices in recent years most certainly affected numbers to Norway, Alberta, Canada, and Houston, Texas.
