One of the challenges assignees and their spouses feel today is that they are treated like a number: they don´t belong to the home country organisation or to the host country organisation. At the same time, an assignee’s experience is of crucial importance to the success of the assignment and it is therefore of equal importance to understand the process assignees (and their spouses, if any) are going through and how to support them in the various stages of their adjustment process. In other words, it is essential that there is a personal touch to the communication with assignees. In this lesson, your teacher, Angela Weinberger, will discuss the importance of a thorough assignee selection process and the nine phases of the assignment cycle, and show you the anchor points to align communication with your assignee.
