E-Mentoring as a Means to Develop and Retain Expatriate Managers
Wood, Evan D.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
As globalization increases, many corporations are faced with sending managers to foreign countries. With the increase in expatriate managers, a critical issue must be addressed--the high failure rate of expatriates. The literature shows mentoring to be a critical component in developing and retaining expatriate managers. The growing discipline of e-mentoring is proposed as a possible means to satisfy the need for mentoring, ultimately playing a role in the reduction of the failure rate. (Contains 2 tables.)
