In this presentation Professor Paul Gooderham presents findings from two recent research projects that both address the issue of employee
motivation. The first project investigates the work-related values of graduating students at elite business schools in Scandinavia and North America. It addresses the issue of whether they are materialists or post-materialists. It also examines whether Americans are more materialistic than Scandinavians. The second paper asks the question, what governance mechanisms promote knowledge sharing in multinational companies? In particular it addresses the issue of whether bonuses are more motivating than collegial acknowledgment.
