In our modern and highly dynamic business world, dealings with employees pose a considerable challenge to managers and the decision-makers of almost every organization. Understanding how to help employees deliver their best for the betterment of the organization in a competitive environment has become the focus. Hence, most companies have placed human capital as the most critical asset. This study used documentary approach to explore the factors that affect engagement levels of foreign employees and career mobility. The study posed two fundamental questions that have often been avoided as the world is becoming quickly globalized, and job mobility is on the rise: 1) what are the possible challenges to be encountered by foreigners who choose to work in countries other than their home countries? 2) How will those challenges affect their engagement levels in their workplaces and their career mobility objectives? 3) This study used 50 peer-reviewed articles on engagement and career mobility, retrieved from the Siam University, Scientific Research online library, Wiley Online, Research Gate, and Sci-Hub academic search engines based on relevance to the topic. Eight factors that affect engagement and career mobility were identified from the literature cited, and a conceptual framework was established based on the identified factors. Recommendations were offered to managers and CEOs of corporate societies and non-profit organizations.
