Abstract

The aim of this paper is to contribute to the extant literature on expatriation by providing a more comprehensive picture of the combination of strategic, contextual, and operational factors that contribute towards the return on investment (ROI) that is sought from long-term international assignments. Systems theory and psychological contract theory are adopted in a revised conceptual framework which builds on frameworks established previously by McNulty and Tharenou (2004) and Welch, Steen, and Tahvanainen (2009). In doing so, the revised conceptual framework to explain expatriate ROI in global firms depicts a more complete picture of longterm international assignments than has been offered in prior studies. Implications arising from the conceptual framework are discussed for theory, research, and practice, including directions for future research.
