The purpose of this study was to develop a universal set of scales that measures the valence or importance of different work aspects across cultural groups. To this end, a set of task-related and contextual scales, developed and validated in a U.S. sample of 2, 500 employees, was cross-validated on a sample of 5, 550 employees in 20 different countries, all of whom were working for a large, multinational corporation. The results indicated that different methodological approaches (internal consistency analysis, factor analysis, and convergent validity) all supported the pan-cultural validity of these constructs.
