Abstract

The international construction industry is one of the most strategic sector driving the global economy. To make construction industry organizations, groups and project teams more efficient and effective, it is imperative to understand the role that culture plays within them. Hence, this study aims to investigate the impact of cross cultural competence on employee performance, mediated by global mindset, in overseas construction projects. This study applied a quantitative approach and used primary data sources obtained directly from respondents, which involves 100 employees of PT Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk, who have work experience in overseas projects dominantly located in the regions of Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa as well as projects in Algeria, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Timor Leste, Niger and Taiwan, as respondents. Dissemination and the data collection are carried out from July 8, 2019 to July 12, 2019. The analysis technique used in this study is Partial Least Square (PLS) Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), with the help of SmartPLS program. The findings indicated that cross cultural competence has positive impacts to both global mindset and employee performance. Global mindset also has positive impact on employee performance in overseas construction projects. The direct relation between cross cultural competence and employee performance is stronger when it is compared to indirect relation between the two through global mindset. This study provides empirical evidence on the roles of cross cultural competence and global mindset on the employee performance over overseas construction projects.
