Launching Organizational Learning at the Frontlines: Evidence From Hospitals

One important way that organizational learning can occur is through engaging front-line employees in problem solving and learning activities. Yet, engaging frontline employees in improvement and  learning efforts is often challenging. The research presented in this symposium thus seeks to inform issues on organizational learning at the front lines.

9-3.  Views of Managerial Derailment From Above and Below

Managerial derailment can harm managers, coworkers, and organizations. We used data from 2,050 managers and bosses and direct report ratings of characteristics that lead to derailment. Managers working effectively with higher management related positively to their warmth exhibited to direct reports, resulting in lessened boss and direct report ratings of derailment.

9-4.  A Multilevel Examination of Corporate Identity Promotion

This research examines the cross-level relationship between management–employee relations and intentions to promote one’s corporate identity and the mediating role of employee attitudes. Results supported our hypotheses in that management–employee relations positively relates to individual intentions  to promote corporate identity, and this effect is mediated by employee attitudes.

9-7.  A Multilevel Analysis of Pilots’ Situation Awareness During Weather Threats

Researchers examined pilots’ situation awareness as they approached simulated weather threats, considering the distance to the weather cell, mental workload, and rank as captains or FOs. A multilevel analysis revealed that, consistent with prior research, SA decreased as pilots approached weather and as mental workload levels increased, particularly for captains.

Submitter: Ernesto A. Bustamante, ebustama@odu.edu

9-8.  Person-Situation Predictors of Work Competence and Typical Performance

We examined the effects of general mental ability (GMA) and perceived organizational support (POS) on typical performance and work competence. Data from 2 field samples supported that GMA related to work competence, and POS was related to typical performance. Interactive effects of GMA and POS were detected for work competence.

9-10.  OCB and the Interplay of Organizational and Managerial Values

We investigated the extent to which managerial values and organizational values influenced the expression of organizational citizenship behaviors by employees. Results indicated that although both value sets are related to OCB, organizational values exert a stronger influence. Implications for theory and future research are presented.

Christie H. Burton, Clayton State University

Submitter: Christie H. Burton, christieburton@clayton.edu

9-11.  Turnover, OCB, and Counterproductivity: Affective Events Theory and Part-Time Employees

Affective events theory (AET) predicts organizational citizenship behaviors, counterproductive behaviors, and turnover as a function of employees’ judgments and affective states. The current study assesses the usefulness of AET for part-time employees.  Results from structural equation modeling support the value of modifications to AET when predicting behavior among part-time employees.

9-12.  Perceptions of Politics and Organizational Citizenship Behaviors:  Identifying Mediating Variables

Potential mediators of the relationship between politics perceptions and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) were examined, including justice perceptions, perceived organizational support, organizational concern, prosocial values, and impression management motives. Measures of OCB included self-, coworker, and supervisor ratings. Results suggest perceived organizational support mediates the politics perceptions–OCB relationship.

9-13.  Investigating Absenteeism From a Social Perspective: A Multilevel Examination

Ninety-three dyads participated in a study that examined the effects of leader–member exchange and attendance climate on employee absenteeism. As hypothesized, subordinates in good quality relationships were absent less frequently than those in poor quality relationships.  In poor quality relationships, absenteeism was much higher in negative/weak attendance climates than in positive/strong attendance climates.

9-14.  Big Halo, Little Horns: Reexamining Halo Error in Performance Ratings

It is assumed that halo (a tendency to rate performance dimensions based on a global impression) is a source of systematic error in managerial ratings. However, we found that global positive impressions (halos) and global negative impressions (horns) have differential relationships to real-world outcomes like rehire intentions and performance ratings.

9-15.  The Impact of Environment and Individual Differences on Performance Determinants

Research has not comprehensively assessed the influence of individual difference and environmental performance antecedents within the context of an overarching model of performance.  Using the  Army Project A dataset, it was demonstrated that performance antecedents, both environmental and individual differences, relate to performance determinants in complex but theoretically reasonable patterns.

9-16.  The Effects of Self-Concept on Foci of Commitment and Performance

This study examined the effects of self-concept on foci of commitment and job performance. Relational self-concept was related to supervisor and workgroup commitment, and collective self-concept was associated with organizational commitment. The different self-concepts and foci of commitment were also found to be differentially related task performance, OCBIs, and OCBOs.

9-18.  Achievement Goal Dimensionality: Should Mastery-Avoidance Be Included?

We demonstrate that the most recently conceived achievement goal, mastery-avoidance, may play an important role in understanding feedback-seeking behavior and job performance. Our results support the use of the 4-factor model of achievement goals to best understand work-related behaviors, rather than the more traditional 2-factor and 3-factor models.

9-20.  How Modeling Voluntary Turnover Decisions Increases Ability to Predict Turnover

We examined whether voluntary turnover decisions could be modeled, groups with homogeneous turnover decision processes could be identified, and whether the decision simulation predicted actual turnover.  Results suggest simulation-based turnover estimates were strongly related to subsequent turnover and significantly more correlated with turnover than traditional intention-to-quit scale scores.

9-21.  The Impact of Political Skill and Fairness on Interpersonal Facilitation

We evaluated the impact of political skill as a moderator of the relationship between interactional justice and interpersonal facilitation. Results indicated that interactional justice was more strongly related to interpersonal facilitation among employees who possessed high rather than low levels of political skill.

9-22.  Effectively Supporting Your Coworkers: Conscientiousness Is Not Enough

We investigated the joint effects of Conscientiousness and unrealistic perceived control on task-focused and person-focused interpersonal citizenship behavior (ICB). Conscientiousness had main effects on both forms of ICB, but unrealistic perceived control was related to neither. Conscientiousness was related to person-focused ICB only among workers low in unrealistic perceived control.

9-24.  Work Ethic and Job Performance: A Multidimensional Perspective

An understanding of predictors of both task and contextual performance is vital, as each is essential to organizational effectiveness. We proposed work ethic would predict performance and that personality could explain this relationship. Results suggest dimensions of work ethic are related to performance, and these relationships are mediated by Conscientiousness.

9-25.  Predicting Job Performance: Does the Work Context Matter?

It is widely accepted that behavior is determined by person and situation characteristics. However, research in the domain of job performance often excludes work context. This study demonstrates the incremental validity of work context in the prediction of performance. Work context should be further examined as a predictor of performance.

9-26.  Negative Implications for the Inclusion of Citizenship Performance in Ratings

Numerous researchers have demonstrated performance ratings include both task and citizenship performance, however the implications of this for the performance rating, employee, and organization have not yet been investigated. The purpose of this paper is to conceptually explore the potential negative consequences of including citizenship performance in formal performance appraisals.

9-28.  Identification, the Formation of Group Affect, and Organizational Citizenship Behavior

We propose that identification, the perception of belongingness to a group, is a key-determinant in the formation of group affect, a collectively shared pattern of homogeneous affective states among group members, and its influence on organizational citizenship behavior. We present and discuss 2 studies that clearly support our hypotheses.

9-29.  Elucidating Hope’s Role at Work: Results From a Scenario Study

Past research has linked hope and job performance but has failed to explain why such a relationship exists. Using a scenario study, we examined how hopeful employees think differently about work-related problems than do those with less hope. Higher hope executives produced more high-quality solutions to a work-related problem.

The Daily Affective Experience: Its Antecedents and Consequences

Results from experience sampling studies of affect are reported. Daily or momentary affect is shown to be influenced by mechanisms such as work stressors, unfair treatment, cognitive appraisals, and emotion contagion. Affect is also shown to impact satisfaction and behavior. Dispositional variables (motivation, affectivity, and self-efficacy) moderate the effects.

We explore the relationship between self-evaluations and in-group evaluations. We compare predictions from cognitive consistency theories to social identity theory. Overall, we support a consistency approach to understanding in-group evaluations, but show predictions of cognitive consistency theories are moderated by whether people think they can change (i.e., their implicit self-theories).

27-5.  On the Perils of Polychronicity: Multitasking Effects in Nuclear Crews

In situations requiring intense monotask concentration, teams whose members prefer not to multitask—that is, members who are less polychronic—should outperform teams populated by more polychronic  members. A study of 17 nuclear power plant crews supported this suggestion, as the polychronicity of team members negatively predicted performance.

30-1.  Academic Integrity and the HPI Employee Reliability Scale

Research by McCabe has focused on the role of integrity culture in academic misconduct.  The combined effects of academic culture and personality were examined using a sample of approximately 275 business students.  Results revealed a significant interaction between personality and culture for reporting cheating but not for intention to cheat.

30-2.  The Effect of Supplier Ethics on Buyer Trust and Commitment

We suggest that suppliers’ ethical reputations influence buyers’ trust in suppliers, which, in turn, generates commitment to suppliers. We draw on side-bet theory to suggest that switching costs moderate these relationships and also determine when ethical reputation factors into buyers’ decisions to commit to suppliers.

30-3.  Unethical Performance Appraisal: Effects of Political Motives on Performance Ratings

An experimental study investigated the effects of political motives on performance appraisal ratings. Participants rated a “subordinate’s” performance subsequent to receiving lenient or harsh goals, and normative performance information (present or absent). Lenient goals resulted in higher performance ratings than harsh goals; normative information had no effect on performance ratings.

30-4.  Unethical Acts in Organizations: What’s the Cost?

This study attempts to place perceived financial costs on unethical behaviors by using conjoint analysis. Unethical behaviors are compared across different levels of severity and losses in revenue. The results provide a deeper understanding of how individuals’ judge unethical acts. Benefits of this research and conjoint analysis are discussed.
