Global HR Round Table Meeting

January 17, 2018
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Managing Expatriation Risk

In our increasingly globalized world, international businesses seek to fill their organizational needs by strategically shifting corporate talent from one place to another. However, a substantial percentage of international assignees fail to meet their company’s objectives. The high cost of relocating talent – and the high expectations resting on the shoulders of these talented women and men – require that companies minimize risk wherever possible. Five important aspects are:

Guaranteeing expat safety
Keeping expats healthy 
Providing psychological support 
Communicating cross-culturally
Supporting repatriation

Global mobility professionals can improve their strategies for mitigating risks and enhancing the assignee’s performance by exploring these five key concerns. 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Provide support and safety to relocated talent
  • Prepare employees for cultural communication and customs
  • Implement a plan to support repatriation
