Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay was to determine whether participative budgeting and achievable budget levels motivate employees to achieve the company’s budget targets. I chose an international perspective of this issue due to the fact that employees in different cultures view motivation differently and as organisations become increasingly international they need to find ways of motivating employees towards the company's goals and objectives. I presented various studies that have been conducted about the budget level and employees’ participation in setting the budget target and I also described traditional and contemporary motivational theories and discussed their effect in different cultures. Finally, I conducted an empirical study about the budget level and employees participation in the budget setting process as motivating factors. I came to the conclusion that achievable budget targets and participative budget setting do motivate employees toward achieving the company’s budget targets.
