Empirical research, however, scarcely addresses which country-level contingencies affect the EO-performance link. Building on two second-order factors of societal culture -- performance-based culture (PBC) and socially supportive culture (SSC) -- the present study proposes and tests such a contingency framework. Using a data set of 1248 SMEs from seven national contexts, multilevel analyses show that PBC positively moderates the relationship between EO and performance, whereas SSC has no moderation effect.
