Job Performance Issues

 

186-1 Exploring Facets and Correlates of Counterproductive Computer Use at Work

Counterproductive computer use (CCU) was operationalized through 41 items administered online. The 169 participants responses link indecent CCU with the novelty of Internet access and with being a male employee. Younger employees engage in more socially connecting and personal task-oriented CCU, and only the latter is related to compulsive use.

Inhibition was hypothesized to mediate the relation between memory and skill acquisition. After completing individual difference measures, participants performed a simulation five times. Data partially support the mediating role of inhibition, and illustrate that static mediation models often described in the literature may not apply to all skill acquisition situations.

Although the prevalence of employee monitoring and surveillance systems is increasing, little research has investigated employees compliance intentions and behaviors towards these systems.

One hundred twenty-six (126) employees in positions involving customer interactions completed surveys of personality, emotional demands of the position, job satisfaction, and emotional exhaustion. Main hypotheses predicted that emotional dissonance mediates the relationship between emotional demands and emotional exhaustion (burnout). Results primarily supported these hypotheses. However, moderating effects of personality were not found.

186-36 A Taxonomy of Individual Team Member Performance: An Inductive Approach

The purpose of this research was to identify and specify the dimensions of individual performance in the role of team member. An inductive approach was used: twenty subject-matter judges sorted 200 critical incidents into categories they created. Data were analyzed using principal components analysis, and results yielded eight dimensions.

Relationships among affective constituency commitment and aspects of contextual performance were examined. Two organizations, a drilling corporation, and a banking institution, were surveyed. Affective commitment to the global organization was positively correlated to organizational participation/loyalty, and more positively related to organizational participation/loyalty than affective commitment to supervisor or work team.

186-38 Collectivist Antecedents of Organizational Citizenship Behaviors:  The Russian Case

The extent to which collectivist attitudes, values, and self-construals predicted organizational citizenship behavior was studied in a Russian working sample. Multiple regression analysis showed significant unique prediction of collectivism indicators above the personality and organizational factors for both self-reported (N = 175) and supervisor-reported (N = 120) OCBs.

186-39 The Impact of Performance Appraisal on Knowledge Sharing Among Employees

This experiment found that recognition of knowledge sharing in an appraisal system had strong effects on employees willingness to share knowledge with coworkers and friends. However, these effects were moderated by dispositional factors. Machiavellians responded instrumentally, whereas impression managers responses were consistent with a desire to maintain a public image.

186-40 Exploring a Dimensionality of Situational Judgment:  Task and Contextual Knowledge

This paper investigated the suggestion that situational judgment is a multidimensional evaluation methodology that assesses task and/or contextual job knowledge. Results from 233 subjects supported the hypothesis suggesting personality significantly predicts contextual knowledge over and above cognitive ability. Implications and directions for future research are suggested.

Survey data about experiences with mentors were collected from 95 workers. Whereas much existing research has focused on mentors impact on technical or organizational knowledge, this analysis focused on the shaping of proteges work interests. The strength of attributed influence was associated with the proteges experience of flow at work.

Customer ratings as a criterion of customer service performance in validation studies was examined using biodata validity estimates from 4,548 employees. Results show biodata predicts customer ratings (r = .31), however number of ratings impacted observed validity. These results indicate that insufficient numbers of customer ratings will result in lower coefficient estimates.

Respect for task performance and respect for interpersonal facilitation were manipulated in task groups (N = 159) working within an individualistic or collectivistic organizational culture.

To investigate the relationship between polychronicity (propensity to perform multiple tasks simultaneously) and task performance, 50 resident assistants completed a polychronicity inventory. Supervisors rated performance on several tasks. As hypothesized, disciplinary duties were significantly correlated with polychronicity. However, correlations between polychronicity and administrative and programming duties failed to support hypotheses.
