Successful repatriation is crucial for retaining the valuable international experience gained by the employee. It includes career planning, reintegration into the home office, and sometimes, personal support for the employee and their family.
Practical Example of Repatriation:
After a two-year assignment in Brazil, a manager is repatriated to their home office in Canada. The company provides career counseling, updates them on organizational changes, and offers cultural reorientation programs for the manager and their family.
