Re-entry and retention of employees returning from a posting abroad

Analysis of repatriates A Danish contractor faces the challenge of loosing up to 41 percent of its employees when they return home from postings abroad. Questions: – How do we retain our employees and managers after returning back home? (The company needs to know why they can’t retain their returning employees and managers – and they need to optimize the re-entry processes.) – What will work and what won’t work? – What do the repatriated think themselves? Their spouses, the HR-department, the colleagues, the home managers and the executive directors? LIVING INSTITUTE conducted a qualitative analysis investigating how to retain employees who have been abroad.
