Abstract

This study investigates the extent to which expatriate adjustment and work values influence the level of organizational commitment among academic expatriates in Malaysia. Data for this study were obtained from a cross-sectional survey of expatriates employed in six Malaysian universities. Based on a sample of 70 expatriates who completed the study questionnaire, the results indicate that the level of adjustment among academic expatriates in the six Malaysian universities is moderate (a level of adjustment at 3.50 on a 5-point Likert scale). Regression analyses results show that work values (in terms of money ethic, individualism and risk taking) and expatriate adjustment have positive and significant influences on organizational commitment. However, levels of job satisfaction among these expatriates do not show moderating effects on the relationships between work values and organizational commitment and between expatriate adjustment and organizational commitment. Implications of this study are discussed and suggestions for future research are also provided.
