Abstract

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.
