Although firms have been sending employees on international assignments for decades, systematic understanding is sorely lacking. This volume looks at such critical aspects of the assignment process as the selection process, the training required, factors that affect adjustment, performance and commitment, and how to retain and capitalize on the international experience once employees return home.

This book is written for human resource managers and executives whose focus includes the global economy and the strategic role of people in achieving international competitiveness. It can be used as a textbook for courses in International Human Resource Management.

Review:

This book is an important addition to the management literature on globalization. It weaves practical examples and theory to provide new insights on the critical importance of developing the right staffing and human resource strategies to support global strategies. Managers and scholars alike will find this book insightful and valuable.
Ellen Ernst Kossek
School of Labor and Industrial Relations, Michigan State University

The book is written by really top-notch people in the field, all of whom have very strong credentials. The use of real examples and best practices is excellent. I especially like the use of quotes from experts that are sprinkled throughout the book. The book makes good use of scientific research to support its concepts.

This is a thorough and useful book. The book provides research-based suggestions for policies and practices. The attention to repatriation is particularly important and offers direction for companies to avoid mistakesas well as warning for individuals to heed. The authors go beyond the Western viewpoint to describe how organizations based in other cultures manage their expatriates. There are numerous examples, quotes, and in-depth cases written by executives. Also, excellent charts and figures convey and explain concepts....This book deals with an issue many companies have struggled with for some time.
