Abstract

This multi country study of the IT occupational culture builds on US data to examine differences in IT occupational perceptions in the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Australia. In this research in progress we present survey data about the adaptation to the cultural characteristics of the IT occupation and its relationship with occupational commitment. This paper presents the initial data results collected in the above five countries. So far, our preliminary data supports previous findings in that adaptation to the occupational culture in the information technology field predicts occupational commitment and more significantly affective occupational commitment. While no significant differences were found across countries, further analysis is currently being conducted to evaluate possible differences by gender and nationality.
