360 degree, feedback, expatriate, modesty bias, leniency bias
The purpose of this study was to determine if expatriate employees in the U.S. and Japan engage in the same leniency and modesty biases in self-ratings that have been seen in nationals employed in their home countries. Archival 360 degree feedback ratings from a multinational company were analyzed. Results replicated modesty bias for all employees, and there was no effect of acculturation over time. Gender had a significant effect on self-ratings for expatriates.
