Lennart Reinhold Job Motivation and Culture. A Cross-Cultural Comparison of Germany and the United States


Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: B, Heilbronn University, language: English, abstract: Thesis paper about the cultural differences in motivating and managing human resources between the German and United States workforce and managers.Outstanding leadership performance of today's very culturally diversified workforce is, if not the, one of the most important challenges for organizations. One very important aspect of leadership is the ability to motivate; this is a much needed skill in order to allow co-workers and subordinates to use their full potential. Motivation is an essential part of any profession, not only for the employer or leader but also for the employee. This paper researches the differences in job-motivation that exist across cultures, particularly the cultural differences between Germany and the United States and presents a comparative analysis of these two cultures. Not every cultural difference seems directly linked to job-motivation, but on a deeper level many inconspicuous differences do affect motivation after all. The aim of this work is to find the discrepancies and similarities of values, beliefs and attitudes in the workplace and to come to an explanation of these influences and to conclude the implications they have. In pursuance of demonstrating the implications of culture on motivation, understanding of the concepts behind motivation and culture is absolutely necessary. Ther...

Christian Dienes On the Behaviour and Attitudes of Firms and Individuals Towards Resource Efficiency and Climate Change Mitigation


This book empirically examines environmentally related behaviour and attitudes of firms and individuals. The main part of the book is on the investigation of energy and material efficiency increases in firms. It deals with the relation between energy and material efficiency innovations and firms' process innovation strategies - an investigation which has not been addressed by studies until now. Moreover, the author also asks if entrepreneurs exhibiting pro-environmental attitudes are also more likely to envision energy and material savings in the future. Normally one should expect consistent results, because the use of both input factors can negatively affect the natural environment. The results, however, point to intriguing differences between energy and materials as input factors.The subsequent part of the book examines the level of the individual. In particular, it investigates the association between an individual's concerns about climate change and one's actions towards reducing the effects of climate change and intentions to pay for mitigating such effects. The author also contributes to the existing literature by investigating the role of economic factors that may serve as contextual factors influencing these relationships.

Benedikt Zinn Tax Accounting in Germany


Book-tax conformity is an old issue in Germany. For decades, the determination of taxable income is characterized by the authoritative principle governing the traditionally close relationship between financial and tax accounting. However, book-tax differences have been growing throughout the last decades. In particular, the German Accounting Law Modernization Act (BilMoG) is seen to set a new cornerstone in the development towards an increasing divergence between financial and tax accounting.Despite the unanimous agreement of growing book-tax differences, little is so far known about the actual relationship between financial and tax accounting in Germany. In contrast to international research that has developed a variety of approaches to measure the reporting gap and investigated the information content of book-tax differences for corporate reporting behavior, empirical research on book-tax differences and their implications is rare in Germany.Based on two unique data samples the author aims to close this gap in research and, for the first time, provide empirically valid estimates of the sources and magnitude of book-tax differences in Germany. In doing so, the author also calls the information content of tax-related disclosure requirements under German GAAP into question and develops reform options that do not only take the German perspective into account, but also consider the ongoing discussion on a Common (Consolidated) Corporate Tax Base for Europe.
