    Adjustment Reimagined!

    Expatriate adjustment has been extensively studied in the international business literature over the last 3 decades, and several reviews and meta-analyses have provided many good insights about this topic. Because of this progress, some scholars have suggested moving away from adjustment and focusing on other expatriate experiences. In this webinar, we argue for continued research on adjustment but from a reimagined perspective. After briefly reviewing what we currently know about adjustment, we will discuss opportunities for additional work in this area with implications not only for international HRM scholarship but also for the broader organizational behavior and management literature.
