Abstract

This study examined the influences of cultural origin and sex on intrinsic, instrumental, and systemic work values using an individual level analysis. Data on importance of work outcomes were obtained from a stratified sample of 111 Hong Kong Chinese, British, and American managerial employees of a multinational media company. Analysis of variance showed that compared to Hong Kong Chinese, British and American managerial employees scored significantly higher on intrinsic work values and lower on instrumental work values. Cultural origin did not significantly influence systemic work values. Sex differences in the three work values were also not significant. Implications for managerial practice are discussed.
