Factors affecting cultural intelligence and its impact on job performance

Factors affecting cultural intelligence and its impact on job performance PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of social intelligence (SQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) on cultural intelligence (CQ) and to further examine the mediating role played by cross-cultural adjustment (CCA) in the relationship between CQ and job performance. Furthermore, the role played by experience and perceived social support between CQ and CCA has also been assessed.Design/methodology/approachData were collected from 342 managers working in nationalized banks in J&K (India). Exploratory factor analysis was used for scale purification. Data were validated using confirmatory factor analysis and hypotheses have been tested through structural equation modeling.FindingsThe study reveals that EQ and SQ significantly affect CQ. In addition, CCA mediates the relationship between CQ and job performance. Finally, perceived social support and experience moderates the relationship between CQ and CCA. The implications and limitations of the study have also been discussed.Research limitations/implicationsThe study is cross-sectional in nature. The study has been carried out in the Indian cultural context, which can be extended to other Asian countries.Practical implicationsThe study enhances the knowledge about CQ as an effective intercultural competency. Organization can use the CQ scale as a selection tool.Originality/valueThis study empirically examined the relationship between the predictors and the outcomes of CQ. Further, the study examines the moderated mediation effect of the interaction of CQ and experience and CQ and perceived social support through CCA on job performance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Personnel Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of social intelligence (SQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) on cultural intelligence (CQ) and to further examine the mediating role played by cross-cultural adjustment (CCA) in the relationship between CQ and job performance. Furthermore, the role played by experience and perceived social support between CQ and CCA has also been assessed.Design/methodology/approachData were collected from 342 managers working in nationalized banks in J&K (India). Exploratory factor analysis was used for scale purification. Data were validated using confirmatory factor analysis and hypotheses have been tested through structural equation modeling.FindingsThe study reveals that EQ and SQ significantly affect CQ. In addition, CCA mediates the relationship between CQ and job performance. Finally, perceived social support and experience moderates the relationship between CQ and CCA. The implications and limitations of the study have also been discussed.Research limitations/implicationsThe study is cross-sectional in nature. The study has been carried out in the Indian cultural context, which can be extended to other Asian countries.Practical implicationsThe study enhances the knowledge about CQ as an effective intercultural competency. Organization can use the CQ scale as a selection tool.Originality/valueThis study empirically examined the relationship between the predictors and the outcomes of CQ. Further, the study examines the moderated mediation effect of the interaction of CQ and experience and CQ and perceived social support through CCA on job performance.
