Abstract: The arrival of the knowledge economy and a non-stopping globalization process has led companies and organizations not only to expand to new markets but also to globalize their workforce. With the goal of facing an increasing and international competition, businesses are trying to source the best talent, wherever it is located. For citizens, technological improvements have eased mobility and it is now easier than ever to move towards other areas of the world for a wide variety of reasons (professional, economic, political, etc). In this context, the global mobility of the workforce becomes relevant. The number of people relocating to other countries and regions for working and non-working purposes is increasing and Catalans are not an exception. This can become a challenge for organizations, states and citizens, as they have to adapt to a new environment, in which working and living with people from different cultures is no longer the exception, but the rule. Nevertheless, cultural adaptation is not always an easy task, particularly, when it involves a job and housing change, and there are several factors that can contribute to a successful adaptation. This research has examined the cultural adaptation of the labor mobility at an international level, by studying the Catalan expatriates who work for organizations abroad.
