Expatriación: cuando la conciliación familia-trabajo … CO2-101
As a result of globalization, companies are increasingly operating on an international scale and must therefore be prepared to operate in culturally diverse locations. One of the ways in which companies make their way out of their country is through the expatriation of employees. There are a number of factors that can influence whether the expatriate's adaptation process is more or less successful.
The expatriation experience is a process that includes several phases: selection, training, adaptation and repatriation. Both the person and the company must know what these phases are and act appropriately in each of them to ensure the success of the expatriation.Academic Area:Organisational Behaviour | Human Resources
