Repatriation involves the return of company or organizational employees who are returning from international engagements. There are many ways for a company to retain this talent and prevent them from moving, some of tactics that can be used include:

  1. Proper communication of repatriation plans, to include the details of assignment and employee status upon return.
  2. Employee recognition.
  3. Appreciation of employee’s service.

Serving on a foreign assignment may provide and exciting opportunity for many individuals but it may also be a burden for some. It is essential the employer provides adequate support for both phases of the transition, especially for longer term engagements.
