Short-term international assignments and their performances: A conceptual framework for future researchers
Significant research has been undertaken on expatriates, but comparatively little is available on short-term international assignees (SIAs) (Conroy, et al., 2018, Vance et al., 2017) [5, 19, 33]. Limited coverage of SIAs within the literature encouraged this conceptual paper which seeks to not only understands the concept of SIAs but also that to offer a direction for future researchers to carry out research with a holistic approach. The purpose of this paper is to propose a model to increase the adjustment and performances of SIAs. This conceptual model has integrated a series of activities: organizational support and social support that is expected to take place at three-time stages to make sure SIAs adjustment and performance. The outcomes of the paper will come up with adequate indicators to measure the integration and effectiveness of the job performance of SIAs. The literature-based data compilation was done to develop this model.
