Talent Management Strategies To Improve Assignment Effectiveness

According to widely acknowledged industry standards, between 20 and 45 percent of international assignments fail. What this means, generally speaking, is that the organization’s objectives were not met by a particular employee on a particular international assignment. In a number of instances, a failed assignment results in the employee leaving the organization altogether. This can become expensive, as sending an employee on assignment typically costs a company two to three times his or her annual salary. Organizations assume it makes good business sense, but sometimes it doesn’t. They often have a limited view of the assignment process, focusing more on immediate business needs than long-term employee development and strategic organizational objectives such as return on investment.
