The development of high-speed, global travel and the concomitant spread of information and communication technologies have considerably changed the way people work across borders. This contribution investigates the roles and functions of flexpatriates, who include business travelers and short-term assignees, compared with long-term expatriates. Face-to-face interviews with 77 expatriate managers in charge of the subsidiaries of 47 French multinational companies (MNCs), located in 10 countries across Asia, reveal that French expatriation to Asia is contained but not declining. In specific cases French MNCs continue to expatriate considerably. Although the use of flexpatriation is increasing, this trend is not systematic in all MNCs. Finally, expatriates have more strategic, long-term roles, whereas flexpatriates complement expatriates by taking over more operational and functional roles. We conclude our talk with managerial recommendations as well as implications for further research.
