Country and organizational-level adaptation to foreign workplace ideologies: a comparative study of distributive justice values in China, Russia and the United States
AbstractDrawing from concepts of cultural distance and cultural propensity to change, we predict the convergence, divergence or crossvergence of distributive justice values in China and Russia, as compared with US managers. Using institutional theory, we predict responses by organizational type (joint ventures/foreign-owned vs state-owned enterprises (SOEs)). Lastly, we develop predictions based on the interaction of culture and organizational type. Results indicate divergence in China, regardless of organizational type. In contrast, differences by organizational type were observed among Russian managers, with convergence among managers in joint ventures, but continuing divergence among managers in SOEs. Implications for theory are discussed. Journal of International Business Studies (2003), 34, 389–406. doi:10.1057/palgrave.jibs.8400040
