In today's globalized world, the high rate of labor mobility brings new challenges for institutions. Especially expatriated staff may have difficulties in adapting to new conditions within the institution in a new cultural environment.The purpose of this study is to identify the internal problems faced by employees who come to an international higher education institution from a different country and offer related solutions. In this context, a research was conducted with a sample of employees from Turkey to Manas University (Central Asia). The sample of the study consists of 163 academic and administrative staff working in the institution. Internal problems faced by the participants were grouped under 4 factors. ANOVA test and independent sample T-test were conducted to see if there was a difference on the perceptions of possible internal problems according to the demographic characteristics of the participants. According to the results, according to variables such as age, gender, educational status, marital status, duration of stay in Kyrgyzstan, the number of languages they speak, whether they have previous experience abroad, whether they live with their family in Kyrgyzstan, their duty (academic and administrative), it has been demonstrated that they differ.

The results of the study are thought to be a highlight for both the human resources management policy of the institutions, the employees themselves, and also the researchers in the relevant field.
