Abstract (Summary)

Examining cultural differences in resilience among workers and how these differences are related to satisfaction and performance at work is a vital research area that may provide insights into the United States’ steadily diversifying workforce. Specifically, there has been limited research on cultural differences in the workplace and its impact on affect and performance. This study investigated the impact that cultural resilience has on an individual’s job satisfaction and work performance. Moderation analyses using cultural resilience were conducted to test the impact that minority status, immigration status, and stress have on job satisfaction and performance. Results of this study indicated a significant interaction between cultural resilience and stress on an employee’s job satisfaction. Although minority and immigrant status significantly contributed to an individual’s cultural resilience, there was no significant interaction between cultural resilience and group status on an employee’s job performance. This study highlights the importance of examining the perspective of cultural minorities in workplace settings and has implications on workplace dynamics.
