Why is that important ?[edit]

Employees can get stressed and feel like the job isn’t what they expected.[4] Some of them even quit their job due to some ongoing dissatisfaction in the workplace, even if they like it, provided the working conditions aren’t appropriate. According to Herzberg, there are some hygiene factors used to determine the level of satisfaction in a company between the employees: development, stimulation, variety, recognition and responsibility are few of them.

Creating an international team can be a precious asset as well, an international workforce [5] can be complementary. But it is a risky process because international workforce can be harder to handle, as for the employees as for the managers.

Employee’s performance is a varying factor. Indeed, it includes three major dimensions :
