Resumé

Estimates of the number of expatriates who return early from an international assignment vary considerably, but the fact remains that international assignments are not always fail proof. Early return incurs both direct and indirect costs, such as money invested in the training of the expatriate and possible damage to the company image in the host country. A failed assignment can cost up to one million US dollars. It can also lead to disappointment and a loss of self-esteem for the expatriate.
