Global Employees...Global Families
The purpose of this ebook on global employee families is to expand the conceptual and methodological boundaries of research in this area to enhance our understanding of the family experiences of the growing diverse portfolio of global employees.
The chapters in this ebook are conceptually and methodologically diverse. Grounded in a variety of theoretical frameworks, such as Hobfoll's Conservation of Resources theory (COR), embeddedness, and relational demography, the research focuses on different outcomes, including adjustment, work-family conflict, and negative consequences such as divorce. Methodologically, the studies represent both qualitative and quantitative approaches to research and the samples include diverse forms of global employees (i.e., corporate and self-initiated expatriates, international business travelers, and rotational assignees) from a variety of world regions (i.e., Europe, the Far East, and North America). They also target diverse family structures (i.e., dual career families, single earner families, and families with and without children).
