  • Cross-cultural factorial validity of the academic motivation scale
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Edward Osei Akoto)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - The purpose of this study was to examine the factorial validity of the academic motivation scale, including mean structures and reliabilities across two culturally diverse samples. Thus, the study assesses the fit of the seven-factor conceptualization of AMS to a non-western context.Design/methodology/approach - Survey questionnaire was used to elicit responses from undergraduate business students from universities in the U.S. (267) and Ghana (262). The data was analyzed using the Multi-group CFA technique in LISREL 8.7, to assess measurement equivalency and the fit of the academic motivation scale to the non-western context. Findings - After baseline models were established, a hierarchy of successively restrictive models were specified and estimated. Support was found for factorial, metric, and scalar invariance across the two samples, but different levels of psychometric soundness exist. Research limitations/implications - In spite of the low reliabilities in the non-western context, the AMS has the potential to measure the same traits in the same way across diverse groups. Practical implications - Researchers, educators, and policy makers interested in this field of study may be confident in employing the AMS to investigate students’ motives, including cross-cultural motivational studies. Organizations may also use the AMS as a pre-employment tool to understand college graduates motivational profile for better person-organization match.Originality/value - The AMS has been developed and validated in the western context, but its validity in non-western contexts remains unexplored. This study provides a cross-cultural comparative test of the seven-factor conceptualization.

  • Collaboration Strategies for a Transition Economy: Measuring Culture in
           Albania
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Narasimha Rao Vajjhala; Kenneth David Strang)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - The researchers in this study reviewed the literature to locate the most relevant multicultural theories, factors, and instruments in order to measure Albania's national culture.Design/methodology/approach - An innovative combination of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis were used to fit the multicultural construct to the sample data, and then estimate the national culture (N=73). The multicultural indexes were calculated for five generally-accepted national culture factors to compare with the benchmarks published in the literature.Findings - The multicultural indexes were calculated for five generally-accepted national culture factors to compare with the benchmarks published in the literature. An asymmetric plot was created for critical comparison of Albania with five other theoretically selected countries, using the indexes for PDi, ICi, MFi, UAi, and LTi. Albania was found to be most similar to its Balkan and Turkish neighbors, as compared with Asian or Western cultures such as that of the USA.Research limitations/implications - The researchers discussed the implications of knowing Albania's national culture profile with reference to how other countries might collaborate and transact with this emerging transition economyPractical implications - From a business standpoint, the multicultural indexes for Albania provide general indicators of the national beliefs, norms and values, which foreign organizations may compare to their own cultural profile when interacting with professionals in this country. The best use for such indexes is for benchmarking and comparison. Foreign government, private corporations, or nonprofit organizations may compare their own culture profile with that of Albania to be aware of the similarities and differences.Originality/value - Albanian national culture was estimated for the first time in the literature, using a five-factor model adapted from the work of Hofstede.

  • Non-financial Employment Commitment: Some Correlates and a Cross-national
           Comparison
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Raphael Snir)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - To further explore the nature of non-monetary motivation for working, this study presents correlates of Non-financial Employment Commitment and a cross-national comparison. Design/methodology/approach - Data gathered from representative national samples of the adult population (i.e., employed and unemployed individuals) in 31 countries (N=43440), among them Nordic (e.g., Sweden and Norway), Western-European (e.g., Spain and France), Anglo-Saxon (e.g., the USA and Britain), former Communist (e.g., Russia and Hungary), Asian (e.g., Japan and South Korea), Latin-American (Mexico and the Dominican Republic), and African (South Africa). The source of the data is the 2005 ISSP module on work orientation.Findings - NFEC proves positively correlated with intrinsic job characteristics, education level, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment. Administrators, managers, and professionals have higher NFEC than blue-collar workers, clerks, service workers, and sales workers. Respondents currently working for pay have higher NFEC than those currently not working for pay. Respondents trying to improve job skills during the previous 12 months have higher NFEC than those not trying to do so. NFEC is higher in member countries of the OECD than in non-member countries. NFEC is also higher in countries where self-expression values are important than in countries where survival values are important.Practical implications - By assessing NFEC decision makers may be assisted in their selection and advancement decisions.Originality/value - This study conducts the most comprehensive cross-national comparison of NFEC to date, and its findings have high external validity. It is unlikely that the findings are biased by social desirability.

  • Cultural impact of human resource practices on job satisfaction: A global
           study across 48 countries
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Jeanine Karin Andreassi; Leanna Lawter, Martin Brockerhoff, Peter J. Rutigliano)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - To determine the effect of high performance human resource practices on job satisfaction across four cultural regions—Asia, Europe, North America, and Latin America. High performance human resource practices were used to predict job satisfaction for each region and then compared to determine significant differences. Hofstede’s cultural dimensions were employed as a basis for structuring hypothesized differences across cultural regions.Design/methodology/approach - Data was collected from a proprietary industry survey on employee work attitudes. The sample consisted of over 70,000 employees from 4 large multinational organizations with at least 4 offices in each of the 4 regions. Data was analyzed using regression analysis and comparison testing across models.Findings - There are significant relationships between job characteristics and job satisfaction across all regions of the world, with a sense of achievement universally the most important driver. Although job characteristics impact job satisfaction across all regions, there are significant differences in the relative importance of job characteristics on job satisfaction, consistent with Hofstede’s cultural dimensions.Practical implications - The findings have implications for tailoring human resource management practices across locations within multinationals.Originality/value - This research is believed to be the first cross-cultural study of human resource practices affecting job satisfaction using multiple organizations and industries.

  • Challenges and conceptions of globalization: An investigation into models
           of global change and their relationship with business practice
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Christopher Bond; Darren O'Byrne)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This paper, which is conceptual in both nature and approach, builds on a recent contribution to the theorization of ‘globalization’, and seeks to utilise the framework developed therein to help promote a more complex conceptual understanding of the potential implications of how business operates and responds to these challenges in a global environment.Design/methodology/approach - The paper draws primarily on a heuristic framework developed by O’Byrne and Hensby (2011) that reviews eight models of global change. In this paper we review and give consideration to the relationship between these models and business practice, and contend that this relationship is far more complex than the majority of the current literature in the business and management field represents. Within the paper we explore and discuss the dynamics of the eight models of ‘globalization’ and assess the potential implications for business practice of working within these often conflicting and contradictory paradigms of ‘globalization’. As part of this review we consider the strategic implications of ‘globalization’ for business practice and propose a conceptual model with eight strategic options which are aligned to the eight models of global change.Findings - The paper presents a tentative heuristic framework seeking to align the eight models of global change with strategic options that companies might peruse in response to the global forces for change. The paper concludes by advocating a more integrative and complex understanding of globalization than is currently the case and identifies potential for further research in this area.Originality/value - The paper develops a conceptual framework for assessing the challenges that processes of globalization present to business. The paper places a particular emphasis on considering the strategic implications of the various models of global change and offers a tentative framework for further debate and discussion.

  • Mentoring relationships among managerial and professional women in
           Turkey: Potential benefits?
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Mustafa Koyuncu; Ron Burke, Nihat Alayoglu, Jacob Wolpin)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - Although qualified women are still underrepresented at ranks of senior management in all countries, considerable progress has been made in identifying work experiences associated with career success and advancement (Morrison, White & van Velsor, 1992; Morrison, 1992). Studies of mentor relationships in North America have shown that women receiving more functions from their mentors reported benefits such as greater job and career satisfaction (Allen, Eby, Poteet, Lentz & Lima, 2004), and female mentors provided more psychosocial functions than did male mentors (Burke & McKeen, 1990) The present study examined antecedents and consequences of mentor relationships in a sample of managerial and professional women working for a large organization in Turkey.Design/methodology/approach - Data were collected from 192 women managers and professionals using anonymously completed questionnaires.Findings - The following results were obtained: having a mentor relationship had little impact on work outcomes, female and male mentors generally provided the same mentor functions, and mentor functions had little impact on work outcomes.Practical implications - Highlights the potential role of both organizational and societal values in mentoring programs.Originality/value - These findings are at odds with previously reported results obtained in Anglo-Saxon countries. Possible explanations for the failure to find previously reported benefits of mentoring are offered.
