Project title: Repatriation experience and the factors that influence its success
I am seeking repatriates who have returned home from an international assignment within the last two years. They must be currently employed by the same employer who sent them on their last international assignment. This international assignment must have involved relocation (i.e usually 6 months or more) rather than regular international shifts or short assignments.

I would like repatriates go to my web survey - http://boro.psychology.uwa.edu.au/ssnet4/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=98KI8o2 to fill in the questionnaire, which won't take longer than 20 minutes. Participation will be entirely anonymous and answers will be treated confidentially. No personal data will be used for other than statistic purposes. Participants are free to withdraw at any time.
This research is concerned with the repatriation experience. Unlike the adjustment of expatriates into their international assignments, there is comparatively little research in this area. This is despite evidence that suggests that for some, coming home from an assignment can be as difficult as the initial move away. This research aims to examine what factors influence the success of the repatriation experience.
