Abstract

Despite the exorbitant costs associated with the sending of expatriates on international assignments, the practice seems to continue in the foreseeable future. Therefore, Multinational Corporations and other expatriate hiring organisations are continuously taking steps to ensure that expatriates are able to fulfil their assigned tasks with minimum distraction and able to contribute significantly to the organisations' causes. In light of this, we examine the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) as a skill that is influential to facilitate expatriate adjustment and subsequent performance in the host country.Results showed the influence of CQ varies according to type of adjustment and performance in the host country. Path analysis was used to test the hypothesised relationships and the fit of the conceptualised model.
