Applying the Social Network Approach to I-O Psychology

Social network theory and methods have been applied to a wide range of organizational topics across various levels of analysis. However, the field of I-O psychology has paid limited attention to the network approach until recently. The purpose of this symposium is to enhance researchers awareness of social network studies.

Multiphase and Single-Phase Management Models: A Comparison of Traditional and Tribal Management Processes

In our work with tribal-run gaming organizations, we have observed management differences that provide striking contrasts to those of traditional operations. Results of these studies will interest all who consult in organizations, for the new insights and understanding provided, as well as the questions raised about traditional approaches.

Bringing the Implicit Personality Into I-O Psychology

Research has focused on explicit personality, as commonly assessed by self-reports. However, the indirect measurement used to assess implicit personality (e.g., conditional reasoning) has shown efficacy in explaining organizational behavior. This symposium features the integration of implicit and explicit personality and the contributions of this integration to theory and practice.

Antecedents of Proactive Behavior: The Role of Person-Related Variables

This symposium presents 4 studies on the role of person-related variables in proactive behaviors at work. The research designs include cross-sectional and longitudinal designs; self-, coworker and costumer reports of proactivity; and different approaches to data analysis. Results indicate that dispositional, motivational, and affective variables are associated with proactivity at work.

Use of Time Series in Leadership Research

Time series analysis (TSA) has a history in such fields as clinical, social, and child psychology, but leadership researchers have not used it despite a common call for longitudinal studies. This interactive session focuses on conceptual foundations of TSA, leadership applications, and potential solutions to TSAs practical constraints.

274-1. The Implications of Frequent Appliers on Adverse Impact Analyses

Technological advances have notably reduced the applicants investment required to apply for a job. This study demonstrates the implications of allowing the same unqualified applicant into multiple pools for adverse impact analysis. Simulations indicated that frequent appliers can bias analyses of statistical disparity.

274-2. Broad Versus Narrow Traits: Advantages for Adverse Impact Against Women

We investigated the effect of using Big 5 versus narrow personality traits with respect to adverse impact on women in a selection context. Generally, there was less adverse impact when using Big 5 traits. Using broad traits for selection is discussed as a way to deal with male/female differences.

274-3. Modeling Adverse Impact Via Organizational and Applicant Characteristics

This study examined adverse impact across a number of organizational interventions and applicant pool characteristics. Adverse impact was modeled via linear regression from different selection ratios, subgroup representation, criterion weighting schemes, predictor mean differences, variance differences, and normality differences. Results indicated meaningful adverse impact reduction under some conditions.

274-4. Effects of Veterans Preference on Adverse Impact and Job Performance

Using Monte Carlo simulations, we manipulated key selection system characteristics to test the effects of veterans preference (VP) across a range of situations encountered in practice. Results suggest VP may reduce adverse impact against racial minorities but result in lower job performance and present an obstacle to female applicants.
