Ajustamento intercultural de executivos japoneses expatriados no Brasil: um estudo empírico Outros Idiomas

ID:
10006
Resumo:
O ajustamento intercultural tem sido considerado fator determinante do sucesso em missões internacionais e o conceito-chave do modelo de ajustamento internacional de Black, Mendenhall e Oddou (1991a). O objetivo deste artigo é analisar o ajustamento intercultural de executivos japoneses expatriados. Realizou-se uma pesquisa qualitativa com 37 executivos japoneses expatriados, em 21 empresas de diversos setores no Brasil. Apesar de a literatura considerar os expatriados japoneses exemplos de sucesso, devido às baixas taxas de falhas em missões internacionais, os resultados mostram que eles não se ajustam, pois recebem pouco ou nenhum treinamento intercultural, permanecem distantes dos locais, além de acumularem estresse no trabalho e não poderem falhar. Este artigo contribui para o melhor entendimento do construto do ajustamento intercultural e reforça a necessidade de rever o modelo de Black, Mendenhall e Oddou (1991a) para outras nacionalidades.
