Abstract

The global marketplace increasingly demands that culturally diverse people work together but studies have documented important barriers to cross-cultural relationships. Researchers have argued the need to study cross-cultural interaction directly in order to develop knowledge that diverse people can use to overcome obstacles and work productively. This study proposes and findings support the theorizing that collectivist values promote quality co-worker relationships and that quality relationships facilitate employee job performance and confidence in future collaboration. Results suggest that collectivist values can be an important basis for Korean and Chinese employees to develop a common platform where they help each other work productively across cultural boundaries.
