Abstract

Organizations operate globally. Workers are transferred between local and international offices as they are selected for international assignments. Regulatory frameworks, designed to control the inflow of foreign workers, exist in most countries. Rules and regulations exist regarding the presence of temporary foreign workers on their soil. Some countries’ systems appear to be more efficient and generous than others. As part of this program two pieces of research have been conducted on this subject. The qualitative piece evaluated the apparatus that regulates the inflow of workers. The quantitative piece measured the satisfaction of employers with the respective apparatuses. Both of these pieces of research considered the intra-company transfer process from an institutional perspective. This document will maintain the research theme but consider the implications of and satisfaction with the intra-company transfer process from the individual perspective. The research findings will then be evaluated against the findings of the previous research documents. The findings of the papers will be triangulated and mutual conclusions recognized.
