This study investigated the effects of objectives at work on employee regulatory focus. Previous research showed that employees with a promotion-focus orientation enhance cooperation at work, but those with a prevention-focus orientation do not.We focused on management by objectives (MBO) and hy-pothesized that promotive objectives drive employees to have a promotion focus, whereas preventive objectives drive a prevention focus. Data from 120 Japanese employees were analyzed based on Higgins's (1997) criteria for judging promotion and prevention focus. Participants rated their regulatory focus and described four levels of objectives(business,department,section,and individual)at work. Two independent raters classified the objectives as promotive or preventive. Correlation analyses revealed that promotive/preventive orientation of some levels of objectives correlated with employee regulatory focus. The significance and limitations of the present study are discussed.
