International assignments, while important to global companies, can be both costly and time-intensive for staff to manage. They can also take a toll on the assignee themselves, as well as their family members. This questionnaire provides a set of factors and comparison points that potential international assignees should consider before accepting an assignment. Human resources, benefits and mobility staff should use these questions to start conversations with assignees or build tools that that will help candidates make informed decisions. These questions are a starting point for the employee, family and company to use to understand whether an assignment will be a good fit for a particular candidate.
