Abstract [en]

Today national corporations become multinational corporations on a global market. When corporations move across borders they all face new cultural surroundings. Knowledge of cultural differences is important in succeeding with business in a global market. It is not only companies that are being internationalized, but also staff and personnel. This global market for individuals affects companies’ salaries and reward systems in many different ways. We have investigated if cultural differences have an impact on reward systems. We conducted one case study of an American corporation, VIGILANTe. The data were gathered through telephone interviews and a survey, which we sent to the employees at VIGILANTe in Scandinavia. Our findings are that cultural differences have an impact on reward systems. The most important factors affecting the design and implementation of a reward system, are according to our findings, cultural differences referring to Individualism vs. Collectivism and Laws and Regulations.
