New Survey: How easy it is for you get reimbursed for things at your school?
March 13, 2013
A new survey has arrived!
Topic: How easy it is for you get reimbursed for things at your school?
There is nothing good about not getting reimbursed for things that are a part of your contract/benefits. It is also not fun when you purchase things for the school and the process of getting reimbursed for those things is either nearly impossible or you must wait for 3-5 months to get your money back (or even longer at some international schools!).
When international school teachers are worried about the money that is owed to them by the school, things can get even more stressful when living abroad in a foreign country. Many international school teachers would very much appreciate a quick and easy system in place to get the money that is owed to them by the school. However, that is not always the case…as we all know all too well.
The issue with a quick reimbursement might be related to what country your school is in (or what city), whether your school is a for-profit one or non-profit, or it might be related to the competency and effectiveness of the business department.
It is also important to remember that there might also be a language and/or cultural barrier that delays your reimbursement. Some countries have specific ways of getting “official” receipts, and knowing about these specific ways can speed up the reimbursement process for you. If you don’t follow the guidelines of the school and country for getting the right receipt, you will soon find out those guidelines after you try and hand in your first receipts!
So, how easy it is for you get reimbursed for things at your international school?? Go to the homepage of International School Community and submit your vote today! You can check out the latest voting results here.
