Abstract / Description:We study the interaction of organizational culture and personal proso-
cial orientation in team work where teams compete against each other.
In a computerized lab experiment with minimal group design, we prime
subjects to two alternative organizational cultures emphasizing either self-
enhancement or self-trancendence. We …nd that e¤ort is highest in self-
trancendent teams and prosocially oriented subjects perform better than
proself-oriented under that culture. In any other value-culture-mechanism
constellation, performance is worse and/or prosocials and proselves do not
di¤er in provided e¤ort. These …ndings point out the importance of a
"triple-…fit" of preferences, organizational culture and incentive mechanism.
