Due to the continuous growth in the globalization of business, an increasing number of people are taking on roles and responsibilities that reach beyond the domestic work context. Even the recent financial turmoil does not seem to have changed this trend (e.g., Brookfield, 2011). As a result, an increasing number of people are directly collaborating cross-nationally (Hinds, Liu, & Lyon, 2011). At the same time, the context in which this global work occurs is becoming more and more complex and the forms through which people engage in global work increasingly fragmented (Tharenou, 2005). First, while it has been common to view an international relocation as a single career event, more and more employees engage in repeated staff transfers, thereby increasing the intensity of global mobility over the course of employees’ careers (Shaffer, Kraimer, Chen, & Bolino, 2012).
