Expatriate vs. Self-initiated Expatriate in the Multicultural Workplace of MNCs
AbstractThe purpose of this theoretical chapter is to enhance the conceptual coherence of the notions of assigned expatriate (AE) and self-initiated expatriate (SIE). The proposed definitions are based on a set of conceptual criteria, which differentiates these types of international movers. In this chapter, the terminology and definitions of AEs and SIEs are ordered; the chapter also presents the advantages and disadvantages of hiring AE and SIE, and shows the dissimilarities in selected areas of the expatriate management (socio-cultural adaptation, career development, motivation and compensation)
