Seeking Unpublished Studies on Workgroup and Organizational Identification

We – Nik Steffens, Alex Haslam, Jolanda Jetten, Sebastian Schuh, and Rolf van Dick – are currently conducting a meta-analysis on the relationship between organizational / workgroup identification and stress and well-being in the workplace.

We have already identified and analyzed a number of published studies and we are now seeking unpublished work in this area. With this in mind, we would appreciate if you could share with us any published data not listed on common electronic databases (e.g., book chapters). We also seek to include unpublished papers or data (e.g., work in press or in progress) that include statistical details on this topic. Specifically, the paper should report statistics concerning the relationship (negative, non-existent, or positive) between identification at work (with either a workgroup, a department, or an organization) and at least one measure of well-being or stress. We include correlational, longitudinal, and experimental examinations of this relationship. Correlates or outcomes could be one of the following:

  • Self-reported well-being (e.g., psychological comfort, work engagement)
  • Self-reported stress (e.g., exhaustion, strain, burnout)
  • Physiological indicators of stress or well-being (e.g., physiological functioning, heart-rate variability, cortisol levels)

If you do have relevant work, we would be grateful if you could send the relevant information — e.g., a standard report of the method and findings (via published papers, references, unpublished documents, etc.)—to Nik Steffens (n.steffens@uq.edu.au) by 30 April 2014.

Your help with, and contribution to, this project would not only make this meta-analysis more comprehensive but potentially also enhance the visibility and impact of your work. In any case, we hope you can help. We apologize for any potential cross-posting of this call and we look forward to hearing from you.

Annual Reviews announces launch of new journal: Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior

Palo Alto, CA – March 31st, 2014. Annual Reviews is proud to announce the launch of the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior. The purpose of this new journal is to provide distinctive reviews across the range of topics in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Human Resources Management, and Organizational Behavior, summarizing significant developments in the field.

This new journal results from growing coverage of these topics within the Annual Review of Psychology—one of the highest impact journals in psychology. The extensive level of interest in organizational psychology and organizational behavior clearly justifies a journal dedicated to this important area.

Editor Frederick P. Morgeson (Eli Broad Professor of Management in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University) commented, “Although we are cognizant of the numerous outlets for review articles, none are published annually focusing exclusively on research conducted in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Human Resources Management, and Organizational Behavior. We see this as a significant gap, particularly for such a diverse and vibrant domain. We believe that the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior will occupy a unique place in the field and contribute to the codification and advancement of our science by providing in-depth and extensive coverage of the domain.”

In this interdisciplinary field, it is challenging to keep up to date with the plethora of relevant studies published every year. The Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior will capture what is known as well as identify current trends and key areas in need of future investigation. The journal appeals to a diverse audience, including researchers and practitioners working in psychology departments, business schools, and public and private sector organizations across the globe.

Complimentary online access to the first volume of the journal is available until March 2015 at orgpsych.annualreviews.org. Interested institutions that do not have a current online account and would like to see their usage of the complimentary access to the journal may contact the Sales Department (sales@annualreviews.org) to register for usage statistics.

Please visit the Annual Reviews booth to learn more about this new journal at the following events:

  • SIOP Annual Conference: May 15-17, Honolulu, HI
  • Academy of Management Annual Meeting: August 1-5, Philadelphia, PA

Baby Boomers who are virtual team members needed for research study

Dissertation Study Title:  “The experience of working in a virtual team among baby boomers”

Description of Project: The purpose of this study is to investigate how baby boomer employees, ages 55-65, feel about working in a virtual team.

Purpose:  The findings of the study will help organizations, team leaders, and employees gain a deeper understanding of the experience of working in a virtual team, which may benefit those who are leading in a virtual setting and those who work for them.  Understanding virtual experiences specific to baby boomer generation workers may also help to reduce stereotypes associated with this generation.

What is a virtual team?  In a virtual team, members are typically geographically dispersed and   their primary method of communication is via computer-mediated sources.

To participate: This study will have two basic qualifying criteria, being between the ages of 55 to 65 and having experience working in virtual teams.  Your participation would involve a confidential online interview via Skype of about one hour.

First HR Division International Conference (HRIC), June, 2014, Beijing, China

June 15th-16th, 2014, in Beijing, China. The Conference Theme is ‘Convergence and Divergence in Human Resource Management’. Co-sponsored by the HR Division of the Academy of Management (AOM), The International Journal of Human Resource Management, and Renmin University, this conference will focus on trends of convergence and divergence of human resource management research and practice in different cultures and nations.

However, large gaps remain in understanding HRM processes in different cultural contexts.  The HRIC seeks to attract scholars from around the world to share ideas on all aspects of HR – not just international aspects of HR. We invite proposals for paper presentations, symposia and workshops sessions.

Submission Guidelines

HRIC will consider unpublished original papers in English. Proposals can be conceptual or empirical, quantitative or qualitative. Submission guidelines are avilable at the HRIC website: http://www.hric2014.org/ .

Research Study on Theses and Dissertations

If you are a graduate student working on your master thesis or doctorate dissertation, the State University of New York at New Paltz would like to invite you to participate in a research study. The purpose of the study is to examine the feelings graduate students have and the amount of progress they make toward completing their master thesis or doctoral dissertation.

If you are working on your thesis or dissertation this semester, please consider joining our study.

The study will use an experiential sampling method. Participants will be asked to complete a series of weekly surveys. The study will occur over a 10-12 week period and should take no more than a total of 4 hours. You will be asked to complete an initial set of surveys about your personal characteristics (about an hour). You will then be asked to complete a weekly survey about your feelings, goal progress and weekly goals (about 15 minutes a week). At the end of the semester, you will be asked to complete a survey on your productivity, and satisfaction with your progress.

If you complete all of the surveys, you will receive a gift card that can be used to buy a valuable resource related to thesis and dissertation writing. Your participation may also benefit you because you will be asked to monitor your weekly progress. You may be helping future graduate students because we hope that the results of this research project will provide insight into what works and what doesn’t work when writing a thesis or dissertation.

Please consider volunteering your time to help us address these important questions. We really appreciate your willingness to lend a hand and contribute to this research project.

Commitment and Organizational Behaviors SURVEY  - Your participation is needed!

Relationships between Organizational Commitment and Different types of Organizational Behaviors

Thank you for your interest in this study.  This study is being carried out by Pauline Hooten, a Doctoral student with Capella University.  This research has been approved by the Capella University Institutional Review Board (IRB) for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research.

About this study: This research stems from my interest in the levels of commitment of employees and the relationships to misbehaviors in the workplace.  You will be asked to answer a set of questions pertaining to both your commitment level(s) and engagement in misbehaviors within the workplace. 

Voluntary participation: You must be at least 21 years old in order to participate in this study.  Your participation in this project is voluntary and you can choose to exit the questionnaire at any time and any data will be deleted.

Confidentiality of information: The only personal information this questionnaire will ask is for your age and gender.  Your data will remain completely confidential and individual results will never be reported; only group data will be analyzed.  The results of this study will be presented in an academic dissertation and potentially in an academic journal, but, your identity will remain totally confidential.

Risks and benefits:  Filling in the questionnaire should take between 15 and 30 minutes. Participants may feel uncomfortable revealing information of a personal nature.  Hopefully you’ll find this survey beneficial and interesting as you may begin to think about your behaviors in relation to your own levels of organizational commitment.

Division Student Representative Network

APAGS, the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students, is striving to provide assistance and support to student leaders across all divisions through the DSRN, or Division Student Representative Network.

The DSRN is a virtual network of student leaders who are helpful to each other in terms of providing best practices and other suggestions to make the most of their service to a Division and hone their leadership skills.

Their main vehicle to communicate and learn from each other is via a closed group listserv.

  • We send out prompts; students bounce programming ideas off each other; they discuss how to give student voice some presence within their divisions; etc.
  • As we revamp and strengthen DSRN, we envision that we will offer webinars and other sources of support for students based on commonly identified needs.
  • The time commitment is minimal (maybe 1 hour per month, on average).
  • There are no travel requirements. Though we can't reimburse their convention expenses, we also offer members a free business luncheon at Convention.
  • There are no fees or costs to be involved, and APA membership is not required.

More information

Please visit http://www.apa.org/apags/about/get-involved/division-reps to learn more. Please contact Dr Eddy Ameen, Assistant Director of APAGS, at eameen@apa.org with questions.

To join

In order to officially become a part of the Division Student Representative Network (DSRN), students should  complete the form at this link (http://www.apa.org/apags/about/get-involved/division- reps/involvement.doc) and email it as an attachment to apags@apa.org. Upon receipt, the student will be added to the DSRN listserv and should feel free to make an introduction of themselves and their division and use the listserv as place to discuss/brainstorm/network with other student division leaders.

Preventing Violence Among Employees of the Same Work Organization – Evaluation of a Participatory Intervention

A new study published by the IRSST evaluates a participatory intervention aimed at reducing interpersonal workplace violence in three Québec detention facilities of different sizes (small/medium/large). In particular, the researchers sought to describe the intervention development and implementation process, and to evaluate the impacts of the intervention on organizational practices and on the prevalence of interpersonal violence. The population targeted by this study consisted of correctional officers.

This study identified organizational practices that help reduce violence among such employees. Many types of workplaces, as they too take action to address the problem in their own contexts, could draw inspiration from the proposed process and consider the organizational changes introduced in this project. The results of this study may therefore promote the implementation of joint participatory interventions for the purpose of improving the work situation of employees exposed to major tensions.

APA Division Student Representative Network Needs Students Representatives

APAGS – APA’s graduate student division – is looking to have student representatives in all Divisions take part in our DSRN (Division Student Representative Network).

DSRN is a virtual network of student leaders who are helpful to each other in terms of providing best practices and other suggestions to make the most of their service to a Division and hone their leadership skills.

  • Their main vehicle to communicate and learn from each other is via a closed group listserv.
  • We send out prompts; students bounce programming ideas off each other; they discuss how to give student voice some presence within their divisions; etc.
  • As we revamp and strengthen DSRN, we envision that we will offer webinars and other sources of support for students based on commonly identified needs.
  • The time commitment is minimal (maybe 1 hour per month, on average).
  • There are no travel requirements. Though we can’t reimburse their convention expenses, we also offer members a free business luncheon at Convention.
  • There are no fees or costs to be involved – although DSRN members must be APA student affiliates.

There is a small note about the DSRN in the latest Division Dialogue newsletter (http://www.apa.org/about/division/officers/dialogue/2012/05/apags-tips.aspx). The article provides a link for more information.

For a few years, we have not had anyone in SIOP represented on DSRN, but we hope that you will consider taking part. We believe the benefits are worthwhile. Division leadership generally decides the length of service for a student and which 1-2 students will serve.
