This case study explores the support that Bosch provides its employees during expatriate assignments. Through an interview conducted by the authors of the case study with Roger Eleutheri, an expatriate to Mexico, three essential factors for a successful expatriation experience are identified, which are individual, organizational, and contextual. The findings highlight Bosch’s effective support system, which plays a significant role in facilitating successful expatriations, whether directly or indirectly. However, companies need to strike a balance in the amount of support they provide, since excessive support can potentially have negative consequences. The insights gained from this case study offer valuable lessons for other companies aiming to enhance their own expatriation programs.
