Abstract

While a substantial body of research exists with regard to expatriates and overseas assignments, relatively little is known about the differences between male and female expatriates. Male and female international assignees are likely to differ in important ways, such as in their career orientations and motivations, the perceived challenges they face while abroad, and their intentions to leave the company because of unsatisfactory company support, repatriation concerns or better career advancement opportunities with other employers. Using an international large-scale sample, we found that although men and women expatriates do not differ significantly in the levels of their satisfaction with company support, repatriation concerns, and turnover intentions, they do differ in their motivations to accept an international assignment. Also, the predictors of turnover intentions for male and female expatriates were found to differ significantly.
