Benchmarking Intl. Assignment Programs

The SHRMStore has moved its books to an affiliate model with Amazon. Your purchase of this book on SHRM's Amazon store supports the HR profession and SHRM's mission.


International Assignment Programs addresses the issues involved in benchmarking assignment policies against external competitive practice and the equally critical need to obtain internal feedback on the program from both the managers and the assignees. The importance of balancing the results of both types of benchmarking is a major theme of the book.

The book describes the latest and most effective methods involved in comparing assignment policies and the costs of those policies against those of other companies -- whom to benchmark against and how to go about it. In addition, Benchmarking International Assignment Programs also outlines various approaches that can be used to assess the satisfaction levels of expatriates and managers -- what types of survey approaches can be used and how to interpret and present the results.
