Abstract

This research tests the linkage between cultural intelligence, expatriate adjustment to the host country's environment and expatriate performance while on international assignments.The investigation is carried out with data from 134 expatriates based in multinational corporations in Malaysia.The results highlight a direct influence of expatriates’ cultural intelligence on general, interaction and work adjustments.The improved adjustments consequently have positive effects on both the expatriates’ task and contextual performance.The research findings have implications for both international human resource management (IHRM) researchers and managers.
