Expatriate vs. Self-initiated Expatriate in the Multicultural Workplace of MNCs

Sylwia Przytuła


The 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)
