Abstract:

In this study the mediating effects of expatriates' operational capability on the success of expatriation were examined. The moderating effects of social support were also tested in this study. Two hundred and twenty-two expatriates of Taiwanese multinational companies (MNCs) participated in the survey. Results reveal that expatriates' personality has direct effects on perceived adjustment and operational capability. The expatriates' operational capability was found to be a mediating variable for both expatriates' personality and adjustment on performance. Moreover, social support moderated the effects of expatriate personality on perceived adjustment, operational capability, and performance. The practical implications as well as academic contributions of the research are presented.
