Abstract: In order to meet the global demand and face the international competition it has become inevitable for the MNCs to send employees overseas and accomplish the targets. But one of the most important problems that MNCs are troubled with is that of expatriate failure and premature arrival. It is estimated that around 10 to 80 percent of the expatriates sent abroad return back home early. The main reason behind premature return happens to be the cultural diversity and the associated problems faced by the expatriate employees in the host country. Also the lack of proper training to adjust to the changed surroundings makes the employees return back quickly. The expatriate managers face many difficulties and challenges in different forms. They can handle these difficulties only when they are properly prepared for the same through sound cross cultural training. The study includes the qualitative in depth interview with a specific pattern of questionnaire approaching both the employees and their supervisors to understand the effectiveness of cross-cultural training programs on the performance and adjustment levels of the expatriates in the host country. It also focuses on the approaches in the cross-cultural training programs and on the skills needed for effective cross-cultural communication.
