Immediately after the vacancies are announced, the people with high talent and potential are considered and preferred for these vacancies. This is because of the HRIs Technology influence, according to which,

The vacancy in an organization should be matched with the pool of programmed skills obtained by a candidate, and such a candidate is being selected for the opening.

In the past it was considered that the career of the manager has gone into banish when the manager was sent overseas on project. But in today’s business world, the manager when sent to overseas on project is most likely to reach the top of his career.

Global Business Environment is the main reason behind this drastic change in the career.

Organizations would always prefer for identifying the best internally from HR rather than searching out the candidates outside.

Global Business Environment

The most talented and highly qualified managers are multinational levels are of huge demand and this demand has laid out some of the revised principles of internal career management. They are as follows -

  • The employees are selected who are willing to contribute to the organizations and whose career will be beneficial to the organization.
  • The selected employees are trained only for some of the specific and important international assignments. The training before the employees leaves overseas is usually on the aspects such as technical expertise, cross cultural social life, religion, language etc.
  • The experience gained overseas should help him in directing towards the career planning. The essential part of success is where the overseas plan will take the employee to, in terms of his career. This is very important for the employee to get over the feeling of demotivation and quit.
  • All the changes and updates about the company such as changes in policies, current projects being worked by the company and the changes in the staff are to be communicated to the employee. This enables the manager to have all the updated information about the company and makes his job easy when he re-enters.
  • For the manager to re-enter the organization looks for the value added skills and experience which has being gained by the manager and would be useful for the organization in the due course of action. The manager can be examined on those lines by conducting discussions with forum where manager is allowed to share the experiences.
  • The managers should be trained on a continuous basis. Training should not be a one time activity. As training facilitates the manager to learn the value of the experience he gained overseas and the different ways in which he can make use of the experience.

The principles are not put into execution. The reason behind this is that, it is being found that most of the managers once go overseas are following a trend of leaving the companies. To overcome this situation, managers who have been identified for overseas projects, a thorough evaluation should be done by the higher management to ensure that there should not be any negative impact by sending the managers to international assignments.

What to check before opting for a Foreign Assignment?

There are some important factors that are to be considered before opting a foreign assignment. They are as follows -

  • Geographical Location
  • Culture
  • Customs and
  • Political Status of the place

All these factors are meant to ensure the adjustment of the manager to the new geographical region. Even international careers are not left with some of the contradictions. The main contradiction is that the demand for the managers who understand business from the perspective of different nations is being increasing, while on the other hand the terrorist attack of 2011 lead to hesitance with respect to sending the US citizens overseas.

Also there are many uncertainties like whether the migrant manager works effectively and efficiently. This has made the organizations to look out for the local managers in countries in which they operate. This will reduce the cost and uncertainties associated with the managers being sent to overseas.
