On s’est demande dans cette recherche si les valeurs culturelles que sont l’individualisme et le collectivisme evaluees au niveau individuel avaient un impact sur le poids des differents facteurs de l’implication organisationnelle. Il est apparu que la satisfaction due au travail et a l’avancement etait le determinant primaire de l’implication affective et normative des salaries qui adherent a l’individualisme. Pour ceux qui s’orientent ver des valeurs collectivistes, etre satisfait du superieur etait le facteur essentiel de l’implication, devant la satisfaction relative au travail et a la promotion. Des resultats analogues ont ete obtenus pour l’implication a long terme. Bien que certains des antecedents de l’implication organisationnelle soient commun aux deux groupes, l’orientation vers la tâche ou vers les relations varie avec les individus relevant d’orientations culturelles differentes. This study investigated whether cultural values of individualism and collectivism measured at the individual level influence the salience of different antecedents of organisational commitment. The findings indicated that satisfaction with work and promotion are the primary determinants of affective and normative commitment for employees who endorse individualist values. For employees with collectivist values, satisfaction with supervisor was found to be an important commitment antecedent over and above satisfaction with work and promotion. Similar results were obtained for continuance commitment. The results indicate that although some antecedents of organisational commitment are common across the two groups, the emphasis placed on task versus relationships differs across individuals with varying cultural orientations.
