ABSTRACT
The advantages of successful international experience in business are well known and growing. Those who have succeeded in the global environment are very valuable assets to their organizations. One of the significant challenges to organizations is retaining these highly sought after individuals after they complete their overseas assignments. The research and experience of many multinationals show that a formal repatriation and retention program plays a significant role in keeping these valuable resources in the organization. A four phase repatriation and retention program, which is supplemented with the experiences of several companies, is presented.
