- About Brainport
The municipality of Eindhoven has set up a Living In Program aimed at improving the living environment for internationals in the region by means of specific initiatives, which are divided in the following six themes:
The HUB Eindhoven is a meeting place for expats, knowledge workers and locals. The HUB is organizing various events to allow new arrivals to build their own network so they will feel more at home in the region. The HUB’s objective is to help the integration of internationals in Eindhoven, something you as employer can also benefit from. Internationals that feel at home here are more likely to stay.
Sports program for spouses
The International Spouse Program is a supervised and customized sports program for the partners of international knowledge workers or students. The partners can try various different kinds of sports in a safe and personal environment under supervision of female instructors. The program is suitable for all ages and levels: from beginners to experienced athletes. The program aims at helping partners to develop a healthy routine in a new environment by offering them qualitative recreation options against an affordable price. Furthermore, it offers them the opportunity to extent their social network.
Expat Spouses Initiative
An international knowledge worker is often accompanied by an equally high-qualified and driven partner, who would like to continue his or her career in the new environment. Resulting in a promising talent pool for organizations, especially for the small and medium-sized companies in Brainport Eindhoven. The Expat Spouses Initiative (ESI) helps partners of internationals create a relevant and valuable network and puts them in touch with the regional industry.
Get In Touch Spouse support programma
This program specifically focuses on spouses of international knowledge workers and offers them the opportunity to meet small groups of other international spouses on a weekly basis. To allow them to discover various locations in Eindhoven and to build their own network in their new living environment.
Fight Like a Woman
This foundation bridges the gap between female (inter)national knowledge workers who haven’t worked for a long time and companies that would like to increase the diversity of their staff and would like to meet highly qualified, experienced and motivated professional women. Therefore, candidates of Fight Like a Woman may be a valuable addition to the talent pool of your company.
