Unit 5 Assignment – Cultural Differences in Job Satisfaction and Motivation Page 2 of 6 Cultural Differences in Job Satisfaction and Motivation In the late 19702, Geert Hofstede surveyed IBM employees in 40 countries in an analysis that pinpointed variations between countries on work values (Robbins & Judge. 2013. P. 150). In these analysis, 5 dimensions stood out as values that have a strong impact on whether an organization’s staff gains satisfaction and is motivated in their jobs. The results of these surveys indicate that job satisfaction and motivation vary greatly according to the different aspects a culture values over others. The five different dimensions that rose from this study included Power Distance (the degree to which uneven distribution of power in organizations is accepted) , Individualism versus Collectivism (the degree to which acting independently is valued in an organization over team consciousness) , Masculinity versus Femininity (the degree to which a society prefers men in roles of power over women in those roles) , Uncertainty Avoidance (the degree to which a society feels threatened and avoids uncertain conditions) , and Long-term versus Short-term orientation (the degree to which a society values long-term over short-term benefits) (Robbins & Judge.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
