Abstract This article explores the evolution of international staffing in an increasingly globalized and hypercompetitive marketplace. As the issue of staff retention becomes critical in global organizations, it is important to understand the types of managers that may be on or assigned to overseas assignments. The purpose of this article is to present a conceptual model of types of expatriates and explore key decision making points along their potential evolution into global staff. This model emerges from several bodies of literature.
