Are Positive Firm Activities Equally Effective Across All Cultures? a Country Level Analysis of Well-Being

The present research investigates the moderating effects of firm activities on the relationship between cultural factors and well-being. Our results show that ethical behavior is more favorable in individualistic countries, and customer orientation is less favorable in cultures with higher uncertainty-avoidance scores. We also discuss important implications for firms and policy makers.
