Purpose – The determination of this research is to find out the impact of cross-cultural training (CCT) programs on the expatriates in multinational corporations (MNC) in Ireland for their smooth adjustment in host country. The research aims at studying the various CCT programs in practice to increase the success of expatriate assignments by increasing the quality of cross-cultural training programs.
Design/Approach/Methodology – A quantitative approach was adapted by the researcher by floating an online web-based self -completion questionnaire with the help of data collection software in order to understand various attributes, elements, types of CCTs the expatriates attended before departing to Ireland for their international assignment.
Findings – The findings strongly supported the fact that there is a positive relationship between the effectiveness of the CCT and the adjustment in host country and work environment which contributes to the success of the expatriate international assignment. The data collected showcased that the efficiency of these programs can be increased by focusing on the elements like training faculty, delivery, inclusion of various cultural parameters applicable on the field etc.
Value/Originality – This research is first of its kind which focuses on the expatriates in Ireland. Furthermore, this study is also built upon previous researches which have tried to establish a link between CCT and expatriate adjustment. Along with this, the research also values the expatriate perspectives and tries to understand their position on the field in a desired manner.
