Abstract

The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore how employees with different national identities experience a geocentric organizational culture of a global corporation. Twelve participants were selected using criteria, convenience, and snowball sampling strategies. Data were analyzed inductively. The participants experienced a geocentric organizational culture of a global corporation as one in which they felt connected, valued, and could grow in personally and professionally. Based on the findings from this study, a model of employee perspective of a geocentric organizational culture of a global corporation was proposed. The study concludes with implications for research and practice.
