Gender, Aging, Absence, Careers, and Work/Family


2000 John Flanagan Award for Best Student Contribution to
the SIOP Conference: Leisure, Social, and Volunteer
Activities as Sources of Work-Related Skills

Kristen Horgen, Personnel Decisions Research Institute/University of South Florida

Mary Ann Hanson, Personnel Decisions Research Institute /University of South Florida

Walter C. Borman, Personnel Decisions Research Institute /University of South Florida

U. Christean Kubisiak, Personnel Decisions Research Institute /University of South Florida

This poster describes the development of a taxonomy to organize leisure, volunteer and social activities and research to link these activities with work-related skills.  Results indicated that there are work-related skills involved in many of these activities.  By examining these non-work experiences, additional work-related skills can be identified and used to help match people with jobs.


Job Search Behavior, Turnover Intentions, and Voluntary Employee Turnover

Mark J. Somers, New Jersey Institute of Technology/Rutgers University-Newark

Dee Birnbaum, Rhodes College

The relative predictive efficacy of turnover intentions and job search behavior with respect to voluntary turnover was assessed.  Results indicated that only active job search behavior is directly predictive of turnover and raised questions about the use of turnover intentions as a surrogate for turnover behavior.


Predictors of Executive Job Search Across National Boundaries

Wendy R. Boswell, Cornell University

John W. Boudreau, Cornell University

This research investigates the influence of personality, motivational, human capital, and demographic variables on job search behaviors in a sample of employed Western European managers.  Results indicated that situational characteristics (e.g., tenure, compensation level) and enduring traits (e.g., extraversion) are important predictors of search behaviors.


Breaking the Glass Ceiling: The Effects of Powerful Communication

Lorraine K. Nettles, Illinois State University

Karen B. Williams, Illinois State University

Cynthia R. Nordstrom, Illinois State University

The glass ceiling was explored in an employment interview context.  Hotel employees viewed one of eight videotaped managerial interviews representing unique combinations of candidate race, gender, and communication style.  Respondents rated candidates managerial potential.  African American females using powerful communication were rated most favorably.  Implications for managerial development are discussed.


Legal Conceptualizations of Sexual Harassment:
Landmarks, Controversies, and Implications

Patrick M. McCarthy, George Mason University

While sexual harassment has received increasing attention, substantial confusion remains.  Its very existence as a topic of study and public policy is rooted in the law.  Further, this past year yielded an unprecedented number of Supreme Court decisions.  This paper examines ambiguities, potential paradigms, and implications of sexual harassment law.


Evaluating Sex Discrimination Claims: Is There a Same Sex Bias?

Teri J. Elkins, University of Houston

James S. Phillips, University of Houston

Robert Konopaske, University of Houston

Joellyn Townsend, Assessment Solutions, Inc.

A laboratory experiment examined same sex biases in mock jurors evaluations of discrimination allegations made by female and male plaintiffs.  Female jurors utilized information regarding the plaintiffs gender more than male jurors did in their evaluations.  This same sex bias among female jurors was greatest under conditions of evidential ambiguity.


Mental Disability Claims Under the Americans With Disabilities Act

Ted Shore, Kennesaw State University

Recent court cases that involved mental disability claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act were reviewed.  Overall, employers prevailed in the vast majority of cases.  Employees face several difficult challenges including demonstrating that they are both disabled and otherwise qualified.  Employer challenges and responsibilities and the role of human resources management were also discussed.


A Meta-Analytic Review of Gender Differences in
Perceptions of Sexual Harassment

Maria Rotundo, University of Minnesota

Dung-Hanh Nguyen, California State University-Long Beach

Paul R. Sackett, University of Minnesota

We report a meta-analysis of 66 studies of gender differences in harassment perceptions.  An overall d of .31 was found showing that women are more likely than men to perceive behaviors as harassing.  The male-female difference was larger for more ambiguous behaviors and when there was no power differential between harasser and harassee.


Internet Recruiting: An Agenda for Investigating Effectiveness and
Legal Implications

Stanley B. Malos, San Jose State University

Although the use of internet recruiting has expanded at a phenomenal rate in recent years, fairly little is known about its relative effectiveness for achieving desired organizational outcomes.  This paper offers a preliminary research agenda for investigating the effectiveness of internet recruiting from both legal and practical points of view.


The Role of Work-Related Factors in Retirement Adjustment

Mary Anne Taylor, Clemson University

Kenneth S. Shultz, California State University-San Bernardino

Peter E. Spiegel, California State University-San Bernardino

Robert F. Morrison, Navy Personnel Research & Development Center

Jenifer King Greene, Clemson University

Attachment to ones former occupation and expectations regarding retirement were proposed as predictors of the adjustment of military retirees.  While results suggested that occupational attachment had a minimal impact, expectations of civilian life emerged as significant predictors of satisfaction with life after military retirement.


Differences in Turnover Intentions Between First-Year Exempt and
Non-Exempt Employees

Robert Ball, Western Kentucky University

Alan G. Walker, First Tennessee Bank

Reagan D. Brown, Western Kentucky University

Research is presented revealing differences in determinants of turnover intentions between exempt and non-exempt employees.  Specifically, measured variable path analysis revealed overall satisfaction to be a direct determinant of turnover intentions for both groups.  However, differences were found for related support, pay, culture, training/advancement, leadership, and vision/mission.


Building an Employee-Friendly Workplace Through Climate
and Scheduling: Reducing Absenteeism

Adam Stetzer, Nucleus, LLC

Dru D. Fearing, Nucleus, LLC

Gary R. Cunningham, Nucleus, LLC

Edward L. Anderson, Nucleus, LLC

Recent literature has demonstrated that flexible scheduling and organizational climate interventions impact absenteeism.  In the current study, it was hypothesized that these factors would jointly influence absenteeism.  Data from 36 call center teams of a utility company suggest that an interaction between climate and flexible scheduling best predicts absence behavior.


After the Fall: Layoff Victims Trust and Cynicism in Re-Employment

S. Douglas Pugh, San Diego State University

Daniel Skarlicki, University of British Columbia

Brian S. Passell, University of Georgia

The impact of psychological contract breach by a former employer on attitudes toward a new employer was examined in a sample of layoff victims.  Breach was negatively related to trust in new employer, and positively related to employee cynicism.  Perceptions of contract violation fully mediated the relationship between breach and employee attitudes.


Exploring the Effects of Job Insecurity on Employee
Safety Motivation and Compliance

Tahira M. Probst, Washington State University

Ty LaRue Brubaker, Washington State University-Vancouver

Job insecurity research has primarily focused on attitudinal, behavioral, and psychological outcomes.  This study of 168 food-processing plant employees explores the relatively uncharted relationship between job insecurity and safety outcomes.  Results indicate employees who report high perceptions of job insecurity also exhibit decreased safety motivation and compliance.


Survivor Reactions to Organizational Downsizing:
An Application of Threat Rigidity

Amy L. Unckless, Towers Perrin

Survey methodology (N=74) was used to explore survivor reactions to downsizing from a threat rigidity perspective.  Psychological contract violation predicted job insecurity (i.e., threat), which in turn predicted attitudinal and behavioral rigidity responses (e.g., high organizational cynicism, low affective commitment, and low incidence of citizenship behavior).  Implications for research and practice are discussed.


The Effects of Outplacement on Reemployment of Laid Off Workers

Ans De Vos, Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School

Dirk Buyens, University of Gent/Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School

Although research on downsizing emphasizes the importance of counseling laid off workers in coping with their layoff, little is known about the effects outplacement programs can have.  Following an outplacement program after being laid off was found to be positively related to quantitative and qualitative indicators of reemployment. 


Gender Stereotypes and Leadership Effectiveness Ratings:
A Diagnostic Ratio Approach

Richard F. Martell, Montana State University

Aaron DeSmet, Columbia University

This study measured stereotypic judgments from a Bayesian perspective in an effort to identify the key leadership behaviors on which women managers are seen less favorably, more favorably and no differently than men managers.  To circumvent the changing standards problem endemic to evaluative ratings, diagnostic ratios were calculated.


Assessing the Nature of Perceptions of Disabled Workers

Adrian Thomas, Louisiana Tech University

Alison J. Donnell, Louisiana Tech University

Jerry K. Palmer, Southeastern Louisiana University

Past research and scale development assumes that perceptions of the disabled are unidimensional.  A modified policy capturing technique found that three dimensions (overtness, risk, and response) underlie students perceptions of the disabled.  These dimensions predicted various criteria across disabilities, but were much less predictive within disabilities.


Mid-Career Female MBA Graduates: Differences Between
Line and Staff Managers

Janice L. Kalin, MDA Consulting Group, Inc.

Differences between 253 mid-career female MBAs in line or staff positions were examined.  This study differs from most as it compares women only, examining differences in their work and personal lives and satisfaction derived from each.  A primary purpose was to examine the relationship between position and level attained.


Quiet Cooperator or Smooth Operator: Gender and OCBs

Chera L. Haworth, University of Akron

Daniel J. Svyantek, University of Akron

Scott A. Goodman, Saville & Holdsworth Ltd.

This paper examines gender-based differences in using climate variables to predict supervisor rated organizational citizenship behavior (OCB).  Some significant differences were found, and interesting trends are discussed.  Results are discussed in terms of social role theory (Eagly & Crowley, 1986).


Effects of Disability, Assistive Technology, and
Work Outcome on Performance Evaluation

Donald A. Hantula, Temple University

Christopher Winklespecht, Temple University

Steven E. Stern, University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown

Investigated disability, assistive technology, and outcome on attributions and performance evaluation.  Disability condition had mixed effects compared to non-disabled employees.  Technology use had a few weak effects on attributions and evaluation.  Successful outcome was strongly associated with higher ratings overall.


LMX Revisited: International Assignments and the Female Expatriate

Arup Varma, Loyola University Chicago

Linda K. Stroh, Loyola University Chicago

Stacey J. Valy, Loyola University Chicago

Over the years, researchers and practitioners have expressed concern at the low number of females in expatriate assignments.  Results of this initial empirical study suggest that LMX quality may play a major role in expatriate selection.  Implications for organizations and suggestions for future research are also presented.


Gay and Proud: A Field-Study Approach to Examining
Hiring Discrimination Against Homosexual Individuals

Jessica Bigazzi Foster, Rice University

Laura M. Mannix, Rice University

Michelle Hebl, Rice University

Much of the research documenting workplace discrimination against homosexual individuals has been through self-report data.  This research adopts a field study approach and examines the foundations of this discrimination.  Findings reveal that discrimination is present and detectable, but may be restricted to nonverbal indicators.


Effects of Sex Composition on Group Performance: Are They Experienced?

Jeffery A. LePine, University of Florida

Robert E. Wild, University of Florida

This study of 19 student groups examines effects of sex composition on group performance as a function of group experience (four projects over one semester).  Diversity in terms of members sex was negatively related to initial group performance.  Over time this effect was reversed such that diversity promoted group performance. 


Effects of Work Values on Interest-Job Preference Fit across Cultures

Star Soh, Ohio State University

Job preference and vocational choice studies have been dominated by person-vocation fit research based on Hollands (1959) vocational interest types.  Little is known about how work values and vocational interests compete to affect fit.  Cognitive/intrinsic work values were found to add incremental variance to fit across two culturally different samples.


Relations Between Coping and Important Work-Family Outcomes

Nancy B. McCarthy, George Mason University

Ted Gessner, George Mason University

Louis C. Buffardi, George Mason University

The relationships that exist between coping patterns and work-family conflict, general well-being, and job satisfaction were explored.  Significant differences were found among the coping patterns on all three variables.  Further, it was found that gender impacted some coping patterns and may moderate some relationships between coping and the outcome variables. 


Family Life Cycle and the Job Satisfaction-Life Satisfaction Relationship

Roy Gunnarsson, University at Albany, SUNY

Kevin J. Williams, University at Albany, SUNY

In this study, family life cycle was examined as a possible moderator of the relationship between job and life satisfaction.  Results showed that the job satisfaction-life satisfaction relationship was stronger for single workers than married workers with children.  This relationship was qualified by gender and geographic location.


The Effect of Work and Family Centrality on Role Boundary Permeability

Meredith A. Auerbach, University at Albany, SUNY

Kevin J. Williams, University at Albany, SUNY

This study examined the effect of role centrality on work and family boundary permeability and affective reactions to work to family and family to work intrusions.  Work centrality was positively related to family boundary permeability.  Role centrality also influenced the degree of positive and negative affect experienced during interrole conflict.


Career Success Differentials between Dual-Earner Males and Females:
The Importance of Family-Position Variables

Bryan S. Schaffer, University of Georgia

Christine M. Riordan, University of Georgia

Robert D. Gatewood, University of Georgia

Garnett S. Stokes, University of Georgia

The recent increase in dual-earner couples has prompted the need to examine career success differences between males and females within this group.  The current study identifies some specific family-position variables that are suggested to partially mediate the effects of gender on earnings and number of promotions.


Dependent Care Problems, Work Disruptions and Supportive Work Environment

Mary Ann Hannigan, Wayne State University

Donna L. Cochran, Wayne State University

Research on work/life supportive work environments and work disruptions is limited.   Demographic variables were differentially related to psychological and behavioral work disruptions for both child and elder care problems.  A work environment supportive of work/life balance was not related to different work disruptions for either child or elder care problems.


Change and Transfer of Change in Judgments of Workplace Dilemmas

Kelly Bouas Henry, Missouri Western State College

Judy Rouse Van Doorn, University of Oklahoma

Ethical dilemmas are frequently encountered in organizations.  An experiment examined the effect of persuasion on ethical judgments.  Results indicate persuasion produces change in the ethical judgments towards which it is targeted, and in other related ethical domains.  The amount of change depended on ones ethical ideology.  Organizational implications are discussed.


The Implications of Employee Turnover on Studies of Dynamic Performance

Charlie O. Trevor, Pennsylvania State University

Michael C. Sturman, Louisiana State University

We examine how the dynamic performance literature informs research on voluntary turnover.  We find that performance velocity (change from the previous month) and slope (trend over a longer time) had effects distinct from current performance.  We also find that velocity and slope interact with current performance to predict turnover.


A Qualitative Investigation of Job Relocation Intentions and Decisions

Cynthia A. Prehar, Colorado State University

Cindy Cindrich, Colorado State University

Relocation decisions and intentions were investigated using qualitative research methods.  Responses to open-ended questions about relocation decisions and future intentions to relocate were content analyzed.  The emerging categories were related to quantitative measures of actual relocation decisions and willingness to relocate one year later.


Coping with Sexual Harassment: Personal, Environmental, and
Cognitive Determinants

Adam Malamut, George Washington University

Lynn R. Offermann, George Washington University

The present study tested and supported the efficacy of a new multidimensional coping typology and a process model of coping. Choice of specific coping strategies used in response to sexual harassment varied significantly depending on gender, occupational status, climate, severity, and power differential; cognitive appraisal mediated the determinant-coping relationship.


Who Do We Help? Understanding Factors Influencing Success in
Seeking Reemployment

Shreya Sarkar-Barney, Bowling Green State University

Jeffrey M. Stanton, Bowling Green State University

Stephanie M. Kowal, Private Industry Council

The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the role of cognitive ability and environmental factors in predicting success in seeking reemployment.  Data were obtained regarding 425 individuals classified as economically disadvantaged or having barriers to employment.  Results suggest that reasoning ability, education level, and economic status predict reemployment outcomes.


Development of a Compact Measure of Job Satisfaction: The AJDI

Evan F. Sinar, Bowling Green State University

Jeffrey M. Stanton, Bowling Green State University

Amanda Julian, Bowling Green State University

Gwenith G. Fisher, Bowling Green State University

Shahnaz Aziz, Bowling Green State University

Paul Thoresen, Bowling Green State University

William K. Balzer, Bowling Green State University

Patricia C. Smith, Bowling Green State University

Luis F. Parra, William M. Mercer, Inc.

A national sample (n = 1512) and a sample of University workers (n = 636) supported development of an abridged version of the Job Descriptive Index (AJDI).  A systematic scale reduction technique was employed with the first sample to retain items in each scale.  The abridged scales were then validated in the second sample.


The Effects of Work-Family Coping Strategies on Work-Family Outcomes

Jeff Johnson, Portland State University

Leslie B. Hammer, Portland State University

Margaret B. Neal, Portland State University

Jonathan M. Mcleod, Portland State University

This study examined the relationships between coping strategies in response to work and family demands and corresponding work-family outcomes for dual-earner couples in the sandwiched generation.  Findings indicated that emotional coping strategies were positively related to work-family positive spillover and negative behavioral coping strategies were positively related to work-family conflict.


Relationship between Work-to-Family and Family-to-Work Conflict

Yueng-hsiang Huang, Portland State University

Leslie B. Hammer, Portland State University

Margaret B. Neal, Portland State University

Tina C. Lim, Portland State University

Relationship between work-to-family and family-to-work conflict was tested using a longitudinal research design with 221 dual-earner couples.  Results showed a direct causal relationship between the two forms of conflict for both genders, contrary to the indirect relationship suggested by Frone, Yardley and Markel (1997).


The Effect of Work-Family Conflict on Performance Ratings

Adam B. Butler, University of Northern Iowa

Amie L. Skattebo, Colorado State University

We examined the effect of work family conflict (WFC) on subjective performance ratings.  Overall, the experience of WFC was associated with lower performance ratings, and ratee sex moderated this relationship.  The results suggest that WFC may have a particularly negative effect on the performance ratings of males.


Anticipated Work/family Conflict: Effects on Applicant Attraction

Bradley J. West, Michigan State University

Ann Marie Ryan, Michigan State University

S. David Kriska, City of Columbus, Ohio

Joshua M. Sacco, Aon Consulting/Michigan State University

The influence of anticipated work/family conflict on job seeker opinions and family/applicant agreement was examined.  Further, the differing influences of multiple roles in the family, as well as gender were considered.  Many relationships appear and are discussed.  Applicant withdrawal decisions were not related to work/family conflict.


Perceived Organizational Family Support (POFS):
Rationale and Construct Validity Evidence

Eileen W. Jahn, St. Josephs College

Cynthia A. Thompson, Baruch College, CUNY

Richard E. Kopelman, Baruch College

Organizations offering family-friendly programs are not always perceived as supportive of employees family lives.  We present construct validity evidence for a measure of Perceived Organizational Family Support (POFS).  In addition to theoretical explication, empirical analyses were conducted.  Overall, there is solid evidence for the construct validity of the POFS scale.

The Cognitive Basis of Training

What impact has 30 years of research in cognitive psychology had on the way we design and conduct training? We argue that findings from cognitive research should have an impact on the way that we train.  Papers in this symposium address different cognitive theories and their implications for training.
