Utilize the Overseas Assignment Inventory (OAI) to select the right candidate for an international assignment.

The ability to adapt to other cultures is critical to the success of international assignments. BGRS can assist you in assessing this critical skill.


  • Assess potential candidates for international assignments
  • Integrate a cultural adaptability assessment tool into a candidate selection process
  • Further develop expatriates through inclusion in intercultural training programs or coaching

Performance Programs is a distributor as well as a research partner with the publisher.  We also establish local norms and conduct ongoing validation studies of the OAI.
