Managing expatriates and other ‘traditional’ internationally mobile workers is a significant part of many academic programmes and the focus of some specialist ones. But we cannot answer the big questions about global mobility if we exclude from our teaching people who do not fit with our usual conceptions and assumptions about who it is that organisations employ.
Written by two of the most frequently published authors in the field, this is the only textbook to specialise on the widely-accepted types of employee mobility such as high-status expatriation, international business travel, short-term project work, and commuting, while also covering the management of low-status expatriates, qualified immigrants, economic and low-skilled migrants, and virtual global workers. Topics include global HR management, value and return on investment, talent management, compensation, digital HR, and duty of care – all examined from the differing perspectives of organisational practitioners and global workers and their families.
In twelve clear chapters, this book covers everything that a teacher or student of expatriation and global mobility needs to know. Each chapter outlines current research on the topic and includes cases, theories and frameworks, readings, exercises, and tests. This is the ideal textbook for any contemporary course in expatriate management or international HRM needing to take it to the next level.
