What is it about?

When a manager assigns an overall performance rating, most like they consider not only a employee's performance on work tasks but also the employee's organizational citizenship behaviors, such as helping out a fellow employee, and the employee's counterproductive work behaviors, such as harming an organization's reputation with their actions. We show that to what extent these different types behaviors are considered when assigning an overall performance rating is partly a function of the manager's cultural values, specifically collectivism and individualism.
