ABSTRACT
The article relates the results of the annual Global Relocation Trends Survey of GMAC Global Relocation Services regarding the demographics of the total expatriate workforce in the U.S. as of May 2006. The survey finds that women accounted for 23 percent of international assignees in 2005. Other survey findings indicate that expatriates are increasingly younger and that retaining expatriate talent remains problematic.
