A significant proportion of expatriates quit their companies 1 year after their repatriation, despite a high and mutual commitment between companies and employees during the expatriation period.


  • Is repatriation an under-evaluated phase of the expatriation scheme?
  • What challenges do companies face when their expatriated employees repatriate?
  • How do the ex-expatriates experience the new situation in their home country?
  • What can be done to keep ex-expatriates on board? 

In this session, two perspectives are considered. Aude Beneton, Career and Leadership Coach will talk about the challenges of the expatriates faced before and during the repatriation. Minkyu Park, HRVP, SEA and Pacific, Air Liquide will share about the lived experience of his organization implementing international mobility and repatriation.
