Expatriates Management- A 21st Century Challenge A Study among the Selected Expatriates from Indian IT Sector. International Journal of Research In Business Studies, 4-18.REVIEW OF ARTICLEThe purpose of this paper was to investigate the existing expatriate environment, the main objectives of expatriation and the difficulties and problems related to expatriation. The study indicates that the expatriate environment in the countries of expatriation is mixed in nature. The existing problems of cross-culture in the form of personal, cultural, social and environmental clearly shows the need for improvement of the level of awareness which can be possible only through training and understand the working conditions, language, culture, and behavior of the employees. This leads to boosting the confidence of the employees and enabling them to take up off-shore expatriation. Job safety, work experience, and money are the motivators while cross culture environment, workload and interpersonal factors are the demotivators of expatriation. Committed co-operation amongst all the employees and the employers helps in improving the expatriation management environment.REVIEW OF RESEARCH ARTICLE “FOREIGN MULTINATIONALS IN INDIA: ADAPTING TO INDIA’S WORK CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT PRACTICES”CITATION: Arora, D.

M. (2006). A new perspective on the female expatriate experience:. Journal of World Business, 112–120.REVIEW OF ARTICLEThe purpose of the study was to investigate host country national (HCN) classification of female expatriates in two samples – U.S and India. The study indicates that the female expatriates from the U.S were not discriminated in India but in fact were preferred by the Indian HCNs, therefore leading to an increase in the expatriate assignments. It leads to various outcomes like – 1) both sets of HCNs (India and the U.S) categorized expatriates from different countries as dissimilar in values and shows the critical role of pre-departure training and 2) the expatriates are not treated differently based on gender in the U.S. the research has also highlighted the issues faced by expatriates and the impact of perceived value dissimilarity on the potential for categorization. HYPOTHESIS:Hypothesis 1: The work culture present in India does not have a lasting influence on the expat’s perspectives towards the working environment. Hypothesis 2:Female expats face more issues than the male expats in getting accustomed to the Indian work cultureHypothesis 3:The nationality of the expats does not affect the appraisal of the Indian work environment.
