Abstract: Corporate culture is a term commonly used abroad as an indication of principles, values, rules and behaviours that are creating the essence of organization. However, in Slovakia it is a phenomenon that it slowly adapts to academic level and even slower in business practice. Article deals with the corporate culture of Slovak companies. The attention is paid to the type of corporate culture model and consequently selected factors are examined such as (the field of business, company size and residence region of maternity company) which influenced the type of corporate culture. For categorization of corporate culture commonly very good known Perlmutters EPR theory is used. This was applied on the sample of 145 companies which are single business entities in Slovakia, though they are somehow connected with at least one foreign company (as subsidiaries, affiliations, franchises, ect.). This connection is a prerequisite for examining a relationship between the culture of maternity and daughter company and therefore for application of selected types of corporate culture.
