ABSTRACT
The authors discuss research by Thomas Ng and others into whether cultural factors are related to the relationship between job satisfaction and job performance. The authors note Ng's findings that, in cultures that value high individualism, low power distance and high masculinity, there was a stronger relationship between job satisfaction and performance on job-related tasks. Fewer moderating effects between job satisfaction and contextual job performance, including such behaviors as altruism in the workplace, were found.
