Career Anchors and Cross-Cultural Adjustment Among Expatriates in a Non-Profit Organization (2017). 

Abstract

Based on a sample of 189 expatriate managers working for a non-profit organization (NPO), we pursue two objectives in this paper. First, we address the lack of knowledge on expatriates working in the non-profit sector by exploring their dominant career anchors. Our analysis reveals that the dominant anchors are internationalism, dedication to a cause, and lifestyle. Second, we draw on person-environment fit theory to theorize and test the previously unexplored linkages between expatriates’ career anchors and cross-cultural adjustment (CCA). Our analysis shows that different career anchors are positively associated with different dimensions of CCA: autonomy, security,dedication to a cause, and pure challenge with general living adjustment; dedication to a cause,pure challenge, and internationalism with interactional adjustment; and functional competence,managerial competence, pure challenge, and internationalism with work adjustment. Overall, the study is one of the first attempts to explore career anchors and their linkages to CCA among expatriates in NPOs.

In this study, we use socioemotional selectivity theory to shed light on the role of expatriates’ age in the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and cross-cultural adjustment (CCA) of expatriates on assignment. 

Overall, our analysis is one of the first attempts to provide a more detailed theoretical understanding of the relationships between age, expatriation experience, EI and CCA in the context of
expatriation. (2014)

Unlike the West and Japan, China remains a target market for foreign multinational corporations (MNCs). Challenges and opportunities for global talent management are all the more significant as young Chinese talents are much less eager than before to join non-Chinese MNCs. This article addresses the issue through an overview of the Danone talent management and leadership program in China. (2013) 


Article 3 Asia.jpg

Western MNCs are currently facing new HR challenges in Asia. For years, they were accustomed to being considered very attractive for local talent, who saw them as good potential employers. Basically, the perception was that they offered comparatively better benefits and career opportunities than local companies. Unlike the West and Japan, China remains a target market for foreign multinational corporations (MNCs). Challenges and opportunities for global talent management are all the more significant as young Chinese talents are much less eager than before to join non-Chinese MNCs. This article addresses the issue through an overview of the Danone talent management and leadership program in China. (2012)
