The aim of this exploratory research is twofold. First, it examines the level of work ethic among the full-time working people in a highly under researched non-western country: Azerbaijan. Second, through a cross-cultural comparison between Azerbaijan and its two cultural allies, Russia and Turkey, it explores the possible effect of the communist past, economic development or religion on the people’s perception of the work ethic. The study uses the data of the last wave of the European Values Survey (EVS). The total sample is comprised of 1507 people. The findings show that Azerbaijan converges with Turkey on the majority of work ethic items, whereas it totally diverges from Russia on all items. The effect of Islam, communist ideology and market economy on the findings are discussed at the end of the chapter.
