Abstract

Focusing on international transition of repatriation, this paper contributes to the recent debate on repatriate turnover intention (TI), and in particular, offers a novel approach for the adjustment to the Social Exchange Theory in relation to Perceived Organizational Support (POS). The study demonstrates how the organization creates a cooperative social context by which to foster multiple equilibria and create stable equilibrium within the Multinational Corporations (MNC). The empirical study draws on a sample of recent returnees from international assignments directed (or sponsored) by MNC. The analytical results show: i) social determinants significantly affect employee POS and TI, ii) MNC by fostering multiple equilibria can render repatriate preferences such as a taste for teamwork and cooperation, and iii) social learning and knowledge transfer in creating a multiplier effect help with reducing levels of repatriate TI within the home MNC.
