Moving abroad and becoming an expatriate pulls one out of his/her daily routines and the established work-life balance at home. The new environment, multiple stressors and challenges at work do not fit into the standard eight office hours per day anymore, and leave even less time for settling in with one’s personal side of life.
As a result, we would assume that expatriates have less work-life balance abroad than in their home country.
