    Abstrakt

    Self-initiated expatriates are an important yet neglected talent pool in the healthcare sector. Organisations need to invest in attracting and retaining these valuable employees, even without having large budgets. We examined the impact of perceived adequacy of information before and after arrival on the adjustment, perceived organisational support, affective commitment and engagement of self-initiated expatriates. Forty-six newly employed international employees at a hospital in the Netherlands participated in this study. Results show that informing expatriates adequately before arrival significantly predicts General Adjustment and Perceived Organisational Support, while adequate information after arrival significantly predicts Interaction Adjustment and Affective Commitment. Informing international employees before and after arrival is an easy way for organisations to attract and support their international staff and, thereby invest in retention of these valuable employees.
