Collie et al. Abdullah et al. This process was referred to as cross-cultural adjustment. Krishnan and Kirubamoorthy regarded cross-cultural adjustment as the interaction among people with a distinct culture. Such interaction behaviors were communicated through languages. According to Chen et al.
The expression of culture is different in various countries, and successful enculturation of expatriates includes four dimensions. Self-adjustment: Self-adjustment mainly reinforces the well-being of an expatriate who feels that they are being respected and trusted. An expatriate with better adjustment can more easily deal with contradiction, emotional depression, and loneliness among people.
Other adjustments: This is an essential factor in developing a permanent and stable friendship with local people and being glad to communicate with local people for better enculturation. Cognitive feeling: This factor refers to reducing uncertainty in interpersonal relationships, decreasing suspicions among people, and avoiding misunderstandings caused by cultural differences. Cultural toughness: Different countries present distinct cultural characteristics.
Expatriates of transnational enterprises in some countries show different forms of dissatisfaction, including job dissatisfaction, stress, medical insurance, entertainment, food, and working skills of colleagues. Li and Zizzi asserted that work stress was a unique reaction to the interaction between the attitudes toward supervisors and the frequent and strong workplace-related conflicts. Bijwaard and Wang reported that work stress has a bad physiological and psychological influence on a worker in an organization or an institution when individual capability cannot live up to the corresponding expectation.
Milbourne and Wilkinson defined work stress as the spiritual fatigue caused by being slowly exposed to heavy work stress; when the person felt exhausted and emptied, such physical and mental exhaustion at work would result in the lack of work enthusiasm, high frustration, nervousness, and even insomnia, headache, anxiety, and depression Song et al.
Gullo et al. According to Yu et al. Task relationship: Task relationship stressors include large workload, unclear tasks, and task conflicts. Organizational relationship: Organizational stressors are related to the organizational pattern, management model, and organizational support. Physical relationship: Physical and mental relationship stressors include daily life, inconvenient transportation, and unfair treatment. Job involvement refers to the identification of an individual psychologically at work, which is also a meaningful index of working attitude Honebein and Honebein, The job is the focus of an individual, and job involvement refers to the work attitudes and satisfaction with current work.
Ciocca et al. Reddington et al. For a group, job involvement reflects organizational commitment. Referring to Li , the psychological conditions of job involvement are classified into three types:. It is generally considered that the most important source of deriving meaning from work is to receive feedback after engaging in work activities. Each industry causes certain effects on society.
For this reason, it is important for employees to be comfortable with job involvement. Availability: Availability is defined as an employee perceiving actual, psychological, or emotional assistance at work. Chen et al. Jyoti and Kour indicated that an expatriate should be able to effectively navigate the cross-cultural environment, including through the maintenance of psychological health and well-being, as well as self-confidence and effective stress management. At the beginning of expatriation, an individual may be anxious about the strange environment.
Proper local guidance and necessary directions for work offered before the expatriation can be of great help for an expatriate Song et al. Yao et al. Sorrells concluded that higher work stress was correlated with lower job involvement. Work stress was correlated with a heavy workload and task contradictions, and heavy workload was shown to reduce job involvement Honebein and Honebein, Yu et al.
In research on the influence of overseas adjustment on performance in accordance with company expectations, the ability to work overseas until the end of the contract, the establishment of normal social relationships overseas, and successfully coping with stress, Li discovered that overseas adjustment would affect job involvement. Sharma and Juyal also showed that foreign workers with higher adjustment to the host country would present higher job involvement.
Consequently, an employee with higher adjustment showed better performance at work Shen and Jiang, Based on previous research ideas and results, the following research hypotheses are proposed in this study:. To obtain detailed information, a questionnaire was used for data collection. The questions used in the questionnaire were extracted from well-established foreign questionnaires see Appendix.
First, the standard translation was carried out; then, the translated content was modified and integrated, and after screening and sorting, a scientific and complete questionnaire was prepared. In addition, in the choice of questions, the relevant research of domestic scholars also played an important reference role. To enable the respondents to clearly specify their choices and evaluations in response to the reference questionnaire, the questionnaire employed a 5-point Likert scale, which makes the final survey results more accurate.
Significant differences were found to exist between the years of work and cross-cultural competency, while no significant difference was found between the variables of job performance; other demographic variables exhibited no significant differences on the basis of two research variables. Therefore, in the subsequent analysis and tests, the working years were selected as the control variables for research. Since the research results of cross-cultural competence carried out by Koester and Olebe were widely accepted and influenced the academic community, in this study, the results of their research were used to conduct a survey on cross-cultural competency.
The specific content can be divided into abilities such as cross-cultural communication, professional knowledge, professional skills, and interpersonal skills. The specific measurement entries for cross-cultural competence are shown in Table 1. Job performance includes task performance and contextual performance, which are separately measured. The task performance can be reflected in the aspects of task quantity, task quality, and completion efficiency, while the contextual performance can be measured by the research results of scholars Van Scotter et al.
The scale has high validity and reliability. The specific entries for job performance measurement are shown in Table 2. The entries of the questionnaires in this study are based on the research results of domestic and international researchers; consequently, the questionnaires have shown certain content validity.
Measurements of cross-cultural adjustment, work stress, and job involvement are tested for overall structural causation, and the analysis results of the linear structural relation model LSR model reveal the overall fitness of the LSR model, which shows good convergence and predictive validity. The item-to-total correlation coefficients are used to determine the construct validity of the questionnaires, i.
The item-to-total correlation coefficients are calculated and applied to evaluate the content of questionnaires. In this study, the item-to-total correlation coefficients of the measurements were higher than 0. To further verify the reliability of the questionnaire, reliability analysis was performed. Based on the negotiations with the relevant persons responsible for given enterprises, the questionnaires were mainly issued and circulated by the enterprises in a direct manner.
In response to the high-tech industry, questionnaires were distributed to foreigners in high-tech industries in Zhejiang Province, and questionnaires were collected. The screening of invalid questionnaires was carried out in strict accordance with the standards. The criteria adopted were as follows: First, the questionnaires were not carefully filled out; for example, the same answer was selected for all questions in the questionnaire or two answers were alternately selected.
Second, the questions in the questionnaires were incomplete, with many short answers and blanks. The final response rate of valid questionnaires was Many of the variables involved in social and psychological research are often not accurately and directly measured, and these variables can be used as latent variables, such as work stress and job satisfaction. Therefore, these latent variables can only be measured with observable indicators, such as the detection indicators of work autonomy latent variable , of work mode selection and work target adjustment, as well as indicators of job satisfaction such as work interest, work pleasure, and work preference observable indicators.
When exploring the relation between external work pressure and the factors arising from external and internal sources, the traditional linear regression model can only deal with the problem with one dependent variable; it cannot measure and deal with subjectively strong variables. There is a certain relation between the variables, and this relation can be calculated. The calculated value is called the parameter. The size of the parameter value indicates the impact of the indicator on the pressure of the employee.
Therefore, the parameter can guide the enterprise to achieve the purpose of quickly improving the personal and business efficiency of employees. Therefore, in this study, the work pressure of expatriate employees was analyzed and discussed by constructing a structural equation model SEM. The structure of the SEM model is shown in Figure 1. The design of the pressure source of the expatriate employee based on the linear structural relation LISREL model is shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2. The LISREL model, combining factor and path analysis in traditional statistics with a set of equations including two or more variables for which there are values that can satisfy all the equations simultaneously in econometrics, can calculate multiple factors and causal paths at the same time.
The fitness of the model can be evaluated with primary fitness criteria, including the overall model fitness and internal structural fitness of the model. The data are classified as below, and the primary fitness, internal fitness, and overall fitness of the model are demonstrated as follows. Apparently, the primary fitness of the overall model is good. Table 3. Analysis results of the overall linear structural relation LSR model. In addition, the value of the root mean square residual RMR is 0.
Furthermore, the chi-square test is sensitive to sample sizes; therefore, it is not applicable to the direct determination of fitness. Therefore, better fitness indexes are proposed. Table 5. Analysis results of the overall fitness of the linear structural relation LSR model. During their first experience with expatriation, employees often encounter unexpected situations, which are often accompanied by cultural setbacks and the risks of failure to complete assignments, while increasing the anxiety and distrust of expatriate employees.
Whether an expatriate employee can successfully navigate the setback period and overcome the anxiety and dissatisfaction will directly affect their adaptation in the cross-cultural environment, thus affecting their job performance in the host country.
Individuals who have strong cross-cultural competence can take advantage of relevant knowledge and skills to promote the smooth development of cross-cultural employment. Improving their acceptance of an unfamiliar culture and integrating it with the cultural environment can enable expatriate employees to fully adapt to the new environment and get along with relevant personnel; the ability to recognize the differences between the old and new environment as soon as possible can help the expatriate process the possible conflicts to achieve the goal of integration with the cross-cultural environment and meet the requirements for high job performance.
In this study, the control variables of respondents were collected, such as gender, age, working years, and jobs. However, in data processing, in addition to the influence of working years on cross-cultural competence, other variables are associated with independent variables. There are no significant relations between dependent variables, control variables, and independent variables. Cross-cultural competence is positively related to the performance of expatriate employees.
The stronger the cross-cultural competence of an expatriate employee is, the better the performance in the host country is and the higher the corresponding job performance is. The research results have shown that the ability of expatriate employees of high-tech industries to adjust to the customs in the host country improves their job involvement. This effect might occur because employees in high-tech industries who are able to adjust to life in the host country can more easily find ways to release work stress, e.
This skill would help employees in high-tech industries reduce job stress and achieve greater involvement in the job. Generally, local people, expatriates, and local employees all have stress-releasing methods after work. Expatriates in the high-tech industry who feel enjoyment in life experience reduced work stress and perform better on the job. Expatriates in the high-tech industry who are able to easily control their work appear to experience lower work stress and more easily exhibit job involvement.
In general, expatriates in the high-tech industry who are able to adjust to their work contexts feel less frustration and work stress, allowing them to reach higher achievement and higher job involvement. The success of expatriates is a classic topic in international practices and academic research on human resource management.
Pressures of expatriate tasks on employees can be positive and negative. There are many studies on negative factors, such as cultural differences, lifestyle changes, language communication barriers, and other factors that will impose psychological burdens upon employees. However, positive pressures can play a dynamic role and can support expatriates to take multi-objective initiatives to pursue individual success at the individual, work, and organizational levels.
Based on the findings analyzed in this study, the following practical suggestions and recommendations are proposed:. Knowing the main purpose of his posting, the expert was able to focus his energy on downloading his knowledge to other managers. Moreover, he did not build up unrealistic expectations that he would be promoted after returning home.
Companies with foreign operations will always face unexpected crises from time to time. Just as managers often send people abroad for the wrong reasons, they frequently send the wrong people. Indeed, technical skill is frequently the main reason that people are selected for open posts. But managers often send people who lack the ability to adjust to different customs, perspectives, and business practices. In other words, they send people who are capable but culturally illiterate.
After all, successfully navigating within your own business environment and culture does not guarantee that you can maneuver successfully in another one. We know, for instance, of a senior manager at a U. What was worse, the man was unwilling to change his way of doing business. How do you weed out people like the man who failed in Korea? The companies that manage expats successfully use a variety of tools to assess cultural sensitivity, from casual observation to formal testing.
Interestingly, however, almost all evaluate people early in their careers in order to eliminate some from the potential pool of expats and help others build cross-cultural skills. Although the companies differ in how they conduct their assessments, our research shows that they seek the following similar characteristics in their expats:. To identify such people, the most effective companies in our research scanned their ranks for employees who were both enthusiastic and extroverted in conversation, and not afraid to try out their fractured French or talk with someone whose English was weak.
The tendency for many people posted overseas is to stick with a small circle of fellow expats. By contrast, successful global managers establish social ties to the local residents, from shopkeepers to government officials. There is no better source for insights into a local market and no better way to adjust to strange surroundings. But the expats who add the most value to their companies—by staying for the duration and being open to local market trends—are those who willingly experiment with different customs.
In India, such people eat dal and chapatis for lunch; in Brazil, they follow the fortunes of the local jai alai team. Expats with a cosmopolitan mind-set intuitively understand that different cultural norms have value and meaning to those who practice them. Companies that send the right people abroad have identified individuals who respect diverse viewpoints; they live and let live.
When expats negotiate with foreigners, the potential for conflict is much higher than it is when they are dealing with compatriots. Different cultures can hold radically different expectations about the way negotiations should be conducted. Thus a collaborative negotiation style, which can be important enough in business at home, becomes absolutely critical abroad.
Over the last five years, Jon Huntsman, Jr. During such trips, he takes the managers to local restaurants, shopping areas, and side streets and observes their behavior. Do they approach the strange and unusual sights, sounds, smells, and tastes with curiosity or do they look for the nearest Pizza Hut? Do they try to communicate with local shopkeepers or do they hustle back to the Hilton? Huntsman also observes how managers act among foreigners at home.
In social settings, he watches to see if they seek out the foreign guests or talk only with people they already know. He is able to assess candidates before the pressures of an impending international problem make a quick decision necessary. Consequently, he makes fewer expensive mistakes when choosing whom to send abroad.
Early in their careers, candidates complete a survey of about questions designed to rate their preparation for global assignments and their cross-cultural skills. Afterward, LG employees and their managers discuss how specific training courses or future on-the-job experiences could help them enhance their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. From this discussion, a personalized development plan and timetable are generated. Other organizations develop them in-house, with the help of their training or HR departments.
In either case, the survey questions generally ask people not to evaluate their own characteristics but to describe their past behavior. For example, they might be asked when they had last eaten a meal from a cuisine that was unfamiliar to them. To fill its entry-level marketing positions, the company recruits students from universities or business schools who can demonstrate an ability to handle cross-cultural situations. They may have already worked or lived abroad and will at the very least have traveled extensively; they will often be able to speak a foreign language.
Colgate-Palmolive takes a similarly cautious approach once such promising young people are on staff. Instead of sending them on long assignments abroad, it sends them on a series of training stints lasting 6 to 18 months. These assignments do not come with the costly benefits that are provided to high-level expats, such as allowances for housing and a car. This strategy means the company can provide young managers with a broad range of overseas experience.
One manager hired in the United States, for example, spent time in the Czech Republic and the Baltic states and recently became country manager in Ukraine—all before celebrating his thirtieth birthday.
Companies face a trade-off between the accuracy and the cost of expat assessment. That approach is probably most appropriate for a multinational that needs a large cadre of global managers. For companies with lesser workforce requirements, the less costly approaches of Huntsman and LG may make more sense.
In any case, the key to success is having a systematic way of assessing the cross-cultural aptitudes of people you may want to send abroad. Virtually every effective company we studied took the matter of repatriation seriously. Most companies, however, do not. Consider the findings of our research: about one-third of the expats we surveyed were still filling temporary assignments three months after coming home.
We know of one company that over a two-year period lost all the managers it sent on international assignments within a year of their return—25 people in all. The story of a senior engineer from a European electronics company is typical. During those four years, he learned fluent Arabic, gained new technical skills, and made friends with important businesspeople in the Saudi community. Not surprisingly, the engineer left to join a direct competitor a few months later and ended up using the knowledge and skills he had acquired in Saudi Arabia against his former employer.
International assignments end badly for several reasons. First, although employers give little thought to their return, expats believe that a successful overseas assignment is an achievement that deserves recognition. That disappointment can be particularly strong for senior expats who have gotten used to the independence of running a foreign operation.
As one U. Changes in and out of the office can also make homecoming difficult. The company may have reshuffled its top management, reorganized its reporting structure, or even reshaped its culture. Old mentors may have moved on, leaving the returning employee to deal with new decision makers and power brokers. Friends may have moved away, figuratively or literally. Children may find it hard to settle back into school or relate to old playmates. The effective companies in our research used straightforward processes to solve these problems.
At Monsanto, for example, the head office starts thinking about the next assignments for returning expats three to six months before they will return. As a first step, an HR officer and a line manager who is senior to the expat—both with international experience—assess the skills that the expat has gained during her experience overseas.
They also review potential job openings within Monsanto. At the same time, the expat herself writes a report that includes a self-assessment and describes career goals. In the six years since it introduced the system, Monsanto has dramatically reduced the turnover rate of its returning expatriates. Along with finding their returning expats suitable jobs, effective companies also prepare them for changes in their personal and professional landscapes. For example, the oil and gas company Unocal offers all expats and their families a daylong debriefing program upon their return.
The program focuses on common repatriation difficulties, from communicating with colleagues who have not worked abroad to helping children fit in again with their peers. The participants watch videos of past expats and their families discussing their experiences. That sets the stage for a live discussion. In many cases, participants end up sharing tips for coping with repatriation, such as keeping a journal.
The journal is useful, many returning expats say, because it helps them examine the sources of their frustrations and anxieties, which in turn helps them think about what they might do to deal with them better. Although participants find repatriation programs useful, it is seldom cost effective for a company to provide them in-house unless its volume of international assignments is heavy. Most companies that offer such programs outsource them to professional training companies or form consortiums with other companies to share the costs.
Effective companies have realized that the money they spend on these programs is a small price to pay for retaining people with global insight and experience. Companies that manage their expats successfully follow the three practices that make the assignments work from beginning to end. They focus on creating knowledge and developing global leadership skills; they make sure that candidates have cross-cultural skills to match their technical abilities; and they prepare people to make the transition back to their home offices.
Some companies, however, are committed to one or two of the practices, and so the question arises, Do you have to follow all three to see a payback on your expat investment? The answer, our research would suggest, is yes.
The practices not only reinforce one another, they also cover the entire expat experience, from assignment to return home. Consider the dividends reaped by Honda of America Manufacturing, perhaps one of the best examples of a company that implements all three practices.
Honda starts expat assignments with clear strategic objectives such as the development of a new car model or improved supplier relations. Assignees then complete a survey to identify personal strengths and weaknesses related to the upcoming assignment. Six months before an expat is scheduled to return home, the company initiates an active matchmaking process to locate a suitable job for that person; a debriefing interview is conducted upon repatriation to capture lessons learned from the assignment.
Most important, its expats consistently attain the key strategic objectives established at the beginning of each assignment.
Visual features indexing affective states include colour, gesture, facial expression, and composition. Sometimes it serves as an affective disclaimer, allowing them to lean on their privilege in a more socially acceptable way. Sometimes it appears to express genuine distress, in the form of searing linguistic insecurity. Sometimes it performs a distancing function, enabling them to oppose themselves to the stereotype of the monolingual English speaker. The affective intensity of the drawings suggests the ideology of global English does have costs for Anglophone migrants.
Fundamentally, though, monolingual cringe reinforces privilege, allowing participants to apologise for their monolingualism even as they continue to benefit from it. Expatriate time to proficiency: individual antecedents and the moderating effect of home country.

They do not sever ties with their homeland, and form strong attachments in their new land. Fieldwork conducted in reveals that despite their international mobility, cosmopolitanism does not characterize how these migrants belong in the world. Instead, they practice privileged transnationalism in which their economic, political, and cultural power relative to that of their hosts facilitates both their mobility and their comfortable sense of rootedness in their sites of origin and settlement.

Nevertheless, the quantity Career decision making of global careerists. The challenge of expatriate compensation: the sources of satisfaction and dissatisfaction among expatriates. Expatriate compensation has been commonly said to be a very complex and challenging issue both for expatriates and for companies. As a result, dissatisfaction with compensation is reported to be very high among expatriates. In the light In the light of this, the present study provides new Lives of female expatriates: work-life balance concerns.
The roles of expatriates' spouses among dual career couples. The interview Self-initiated expatriation: Case study lessons from Africa and the United States. Organisations today generally have a more diverse workforce, in terms of country of origin, than in the past. As the capital and labour markets continue to globalise, growing numbers of people move across national boundaries to work in As the capital and labour markets continue to globalise, growing numbers of people move across national boundaries to work in different parts of the world.
The aim of this chapter is to introduce and explore the conditions and dynamics that characterise this self-initiated expatriation also known as self-initiated migration. We start by discussing the concepts of migration and self-initiated expatriation.
Next, we explore the factors affecting mobility decisions and identify the challenges of moving and working abroad. In the final part of the chapter, we offer two case studies from different national contexts: the United States and South Africa. The case studies focus attention on the perspectives and lived experiences of globally mobile workers themselves and highlight the challenges of cross-border migration and the barriers to integration both within and outside the wo Migration policies and practices at job market participation: perspectives of highly educated Turks in the US, Canada and Europe.
Purpose This study aims to clarify the labor market participation of highly educated Turks who moved or were exiled to the Western countries after the July 15th, Coup attempt in Turkey. These recent Turkish flows create a compelling This study aims to expand the discussion on migration policies, practices, job market participation, how highly skilled migrants perceive them in various contexts and understand the complexity of highly educated migrants' incorporation into destination countries and their perspectives and lived experiences with policy practice.
The qualitative data have been transcribed, coded and analyzed according to the grounded-theory design from this vulnerable community. The high education was determined as graduation from 4-years colleges, which was recognized by destination countries. Our methodological tools were driven by the obstacles to collect data from politically sensitive, forced, or exiled migrants. Erin Rider. Expatriate workers play an important role in economic development both for their home country and a foreign country.
The purpose of the study is to analyze the happiness and satisfaction of expatriate workers as well as to reveal the The purpose of the study is to analyze the happiness and satisfaction of expatriate workers as well as to reveal the reason behind the remittance transfer interest of expatriate workers in other ways instead of banking channels.
The study is conducted based on primary data. The data is collected by using a questionnaire including different satisfaction issues such as banking service, working environment, etc. It is found in the study that expatriate workers have to spend more time on their work but their disposable income is very low because they have to spend almost half of their earnings in their housing, food, and other costs including the Iqama renewal fees.
This phase is best described by feelings of excitement, optimism and wonder often experienced when you enter into a new environment or culture. While differences are observed, expatriates are more likely to focus on the positive aspects of the new environment. This phase is also known as Euphoria stage which usually starts during the first week in the host country. In general, it is a term used to describe the anxiety and feelings of surprise, disorientation, confusion, etc.
It grows out of the difficulties in assimilating to the new culture, causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not. Often, this is combined with strong disgust morally or aesthetically about certain aspects of the new or different culture. The length of time a person experiences culture shock depends on how long they stay in the new environment, as well as their level of self-awareness.
Culture shock manifests itself in different forms with different people but some symptoms can be:. Flexible, open to new experiences, better understanding of host environment, developing social network. It is a stage where people start understanding the culture, environment and tries to adopt host country culture, norms, values start communicating with local people.
Recovering from culture shock is handled differently by everyone. We each have our unique circumstances, background, strengths and weaknesses that need to be taken into consideration. Able to maintain home cultural practices, beliefs accept or incorporate new cultural practices, beliefs. With time and patience, we can experience positive effects of cultural adjustment, like increasing self-confidence, improved self-motivation and cultural sensitivity. As you gradually begin to feel more comfortable in and adjusting to the new environment, you will feel more like expanding your social networks and exploring new ideas.
You will feel increasingly flexible and objective about your experience, learning to accept and perhaps practice parts of the new culture, while holding onto your own cultural traditions. Accepting the adjustment process through this model is tempting, as it makes the process predictable and the symptoms recognizable. Should we consider this adjustment cycle to apply universally?
Do all expatriates undergo the same stages in the same order? Or is it possible that some of the stages reoccur? Black and Mendenhall, ; Bhaskar-Shrinivas et al. Thus, not everyone may experience all the stages, not everyone may experience them in the same order, and not everyone may experience them only once. Also, if this process is not universal, how could expatriates prepare themselves individually to cope this emotional and psychological shock? How could they adjust to their new culture more efficiently?
It is clear that an expatriation may bring a block or in other words emotional responses such as for example:. To release those feelings that affect the clarity of the vision and ultimately the achievement, sometimes people have to explore things that are not necessarily at the forefront of their minds. Often, they do not see that they have a block but just feel ambivalent by the goal. The coach will encourage expatriates to observe and become aware of their own way of interacting.
Once they are self-aware, they will be asked to compare their chosen way of interacting with another behavioral model, to see what other possibilities might exit. The coaching conversations can help to resolve, reconcile and establish a new path as the coach assists the coachee to explore his or her story. Click HERE.

Later, Punnet in , will define it as: Culture is learned. This means that it is not innate; people are socialized from childhood to learn the rules and norms of their culture. It also means that when one goes to another culture, it is possible to learn the rules of a new culture. Culture is shared. This means that the focus is on those things that are shared by members of particular group rather than on individual differences. Culture is compelling.
This means that specific behavior is determined by culture without individuals being aware of the influence of their culture, as such; it means that it is important to understand culture in order to understand behavior.
Culture is interrelated. This means that although various facets of culture can be examined in isolation, they should be understood in context of the whole; as such, it means that a culture needs to be studied as a complete entity. Culture provides orientation to people. This means that a particular cultural group tends to react in the same way to a given stimulus; as such, it means that understanding a culture can help in determining how group members might react in various situations.
Acculturation Acculturation is the process by which group members from one cultural background adapt to the culture of a different group Rieger The culture in which we are raised deeply affects our behavior and thinking. Intercultural dimension Crossing Cultures Understanding the culture of the host country will help the expatriate to make this mission a success.
