"Trust and Culture" - RMI Research Seminar

"Trust and Culture" - RMI Research Seminar

Prof. Hwee Hoon Tan from Singapore Management University will present research findings on cross-cultural aspects of trust.

Drawing on a large-scale research project together with David Schoorman and Roger Mayer, Prof. Tan’s talk will focus on the development of a culturally valid scale to measure propensity to trust as well as a systematic examination of the impact of ability, benevolence and integrity on trust across 29 countries across the continents of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. While noting differences across cultures, it appears that the trustworthiness factor of integrity is fairly universal.

Hwee Hoon Tan is a tenured Associate Professor in Organisational Behaviour & Human Resources at Singapore Management University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Business. Her research focuses on interpersonal trust within organizations and across cultures. Hwee Hoon has published in many international journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Human Relations and many others.

RMI Research Seminars provide a forum for discussing latest findings in research areas matching or complementing those of the Reinhard Mohn Institute of Management at Witten/Herdecke University. Speakers are usually international, early-career and/or interdisciplinary-minded researchers.

The event is open to anyone interested. Please register by email.
