Organisations increasingly employ managers in multicultural environments. Inevitably, this brings about interactions and relationships between people who are culturally different. The complexities of cross-cultural leadership, in which culturally-based differences play a role, are therefore important to study. This study examined the influence of the perceived supervisors' cultural intelligence and the perceived cultural similarity between the supervisor and the employee on employee engagement in a multinational company. Cultural intelligence (CI) is defined as the capability to interact effectively across cultures. It consists of four factors: meta-cognitive CI, Cognitive CI, motivational CI and behavioural CI.
