Overseas assignments were once considered career-ending experiences; but they are now viewed as a very useful, perhaps essential, step in the development of a managerial career.

Dear student,

 In this scenario; one of the challenges faced by the managers is that they are forgotten when they transferred in other countries. What should managers do in this situation? 

yahan manager ki shifting py bt ho rahi hai superio. 


sidrah sis, we are talking about overseas assignment which is made by multinational company or organization.  Its not about a person go or not to abroad, Its about when he came back to its home country what problems/risks he may face and we have to define solution of the problems/risk

some Risks: after years abroad, manager return to an organization that may have undergone significant changes in strategy, structure, information and assessment systems, and in formal and informal processes. If the communication during the assignment was insufficient, the expatriate may feel a loss of connection with the home office, which can enhance an impression of isolation and encourage the repatriate to leave the company.  

I think u r right.i like your answer thanku :)

mujhey bhe risks ka pata nhi chal raha
