Abstract

Saudi and Indian managers are compared on attitudes towards work and work‐related variables. Cultural differences were found to play the most important role in determining managerial orientation. Demographic and organisational variables were less important. Managers from both nations were found to be highly committed to work. However, Indian managers showed greater commitment to work obligation and entitlement, and were more individualistic, than Saudi managers.
