Dual Organizational Identification and Expatriates’ Adaptation

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Along with the globalization of business markets, the number of employees who are assigned to their oversea offices has been increasing. These employees are called expatriates who engage in complex roles to fulfill both needs of their headquarters and the subsidiary, and they often experience organizational identification with these two entities. Because they are expected to be successful in their oversea assignment immediately and for a limited time period, we investigated if the development of dual organizational identification can assist their success. The results of self-report data collected from 204 Japanese expatriates who are sent to their subsidiaries in the U.S. indicated the significance of the development of identification with the subsidiary. Expatriates who identify with the subsidiary are more likely to adapt to the assignment and less likely to have stress. In addition, the results revealed that local language proficiency is important to develop the subsidiary identification.
