Module 4 – SLP
Dealing with Repatriates
An expatriate is an employee living and working in a different country from where he or she is a citizen. Moving an employee to an overseas assignment for an extended period of time requires careful selection, training, and planning to make the experience a success.
The return of an expatriate (called repatriation) must be well planned and executed in order for the employee and organization to benefit from the overseas assignment.
Task: After doing some research, discuss how you (i.e., the VP of HR) would conduct the repatriation process for an employee who is returning from Saudi Arabia after 5 years. Use your creativity and discuss the entire procedure.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Your paper should be short (2-3 pages, not including the cover sheet and references) and to the point. You are expected to deal with these issues in an integrated fashion, rather than treating them as a series of individual questions to be answered one by one and left at that.
