Most HR professionals believe companies should review expatriate employees’
pay at the end of each assignment to help decide whether to move staff onto
local pay contracts.
The majority of HR professionals surveyed by Mercer Human Resource Consulting
said pay should be reviewed, while a third thought expatriate employees should
receive local pay – which is often lower – at the end of their contract if they
decide to stay in the host country.
Around one in 10 thought expatriate terms should apply indefinitely and 8
per cent felt local pay should be mandatory at the end of a contract.
