Send an Employee on an International Assignment

Key Points

  • Sending an employee on an international assignment is one way an organization can establish its presence overseas. This arrangement is beneficial to an organization because it can explore opportunities overseas without incurring the costs, or taking the risk, of creating a new business abroad.
  • An employer can help ensure the success of an international assignment by communicating with an employee on an assignment abroad, providing relocation assistance, offering family support and planning for the employee's return.
  • An important consideration when an employer arranges an international assignment is how to structure the employee's reward package.
