Decreases in COLA - How are your assignees reacting?
The Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) is a central part of an international assignee’s package. What happens when this highly visible allowance decreases?
While a number of factors contribute to changes in one's COLA, exchange
rate fluctuations are significantly influential. Due to home and host
location economic conditions, expatriates need to be educated on what
the impact of these changes will be to their COLA and their overall
purchasing power in the host country. (To learn more about currency
