Work and non-work adjustment. Are there differences between assignment expatriates and self-initiated expatriates?
The result of globalization in the area of human resource management (HRM) is the fact that more and more people work outside their country of origin and more and more people working in their home country are employed in foreign subsidiaries or branches operating there (e.g. Gomółka, et al., 2020). For enterprises, this means the need to adapt to the international context of their operations, including adaptation in the area of personnel activities (Stor, 2011).
Therefore, the main purpose of the descriptive-empirical article is to present the results of the pilot study, which aimed to reveal factors significant for the process of adaptation in the workplace and outside of two groups of expatriates- assignment and self-initiated. It is also worth noting that the study is part of a wider project entitled “Adaptation of expatriates over time. The pre-departure stage during and after arrival in the home country”.
