Abstract

The rapid internationalisation of companies has been one of the most significant economic and sociological developments in domestic, European and global markets over the last forty years. Growing numbers of British companies are intent on increasing their presence in both continental European and global markets in the 1990s. For example, 62% of a group of 171 UK organisations surveyed in 1990 planned to expand their business interests into Europe. At the same time, international careers are becoming increasingly common features of the working lives of British professionals, managers and their dependants.
