An Empirical investigation on key factors influencing successful Employee Expatriation Management

Busse Ronald and Subke Alexandra

Page No: 1-26

Employee assignments cost organisations a multiple of local employees and can add value if successful, but up to 40% of international assignments fail. This study examines the factors that have a positive impact on the expatriate process and the role Lewin's three-phase model of change plays in supporting the organisation. The methodological approach includes a qualitative data analysis of ten interviews with expatriates. These showed that the factors of administrative and logistical support, training, mentoring, family support (if required) and career planning have the strongest influence and should be offered by the organisation.

Lewin's model helps to understand the change process that the expatriate is going through and to support him or her. The main limitation is the small sample size and the lack of transferability to other countries and cultures. For future research direction, the results should be verified using quantitative methods and be tested in practice.

This study conceptually analyses each of the seven elements of the 7-S framework individually with internal marketing and intends to discover the relationship between them. Many studies have shown a theoretical construct, Internal Marketing (IM), to be a good tactics for achieving successful development and implementation of strategies in organisations and a practical construct. McKinsey's 7-S framework is a valuable tool for diffusing a strategy throughout an organisation. Though both these aspects are seemingly close to each other, surprisingly, there is no study explaining the interaction between the two. The purpose of this study is to understand their relationship.

The conceptual examination of each of the seven elements of the 7-S framework individually with internal marketing has led to the development of a model that explains the relationship between them. The concept of this study will opened up new opportunities for further research and will give a new perspective to McKinsey's 7-S framework.
