Overseas Assignment Inventory (OAI)

The ability to adapt to other cultures is critical to the success of international assignments. Prudential Relocation's Intercultural Group can assist you in assessing this critical skill.

The Overseas Assignment Inventory (OAI) is our proprietary, web-based assessment tool that is designed to assess cultural adaptability for employees and spouses going on expatriate assignments. You can use the OAI to:
  • Assess potential candidates for international assignments
  • Integrate a cultural adaptability assessment tool into a candidate selection process
  • Further develop expatriates through inclusion in intercultural training programmes or coaching
