We explore e-mentoring as a tool for encouraging students to build developmental relationships early in their careers. Support received is related to career planning, mentor satisfaction, and intentions to continue the relationship, and these relationships are moderated by mentor–protégé similarity and communication patterns. Participation increased students’ levels of developmental initiation.

100-2 Design Control and Intelligent Agents: Effects on Training Outcomes

In this study, e-learners completed Microsoft Excel training after either designing or being assigned a predesigned intelligent agent tutor. Designing the agent’s appearance increased self-efficacy and the number of training modules completed. Designing both its appearance and interaction style increased declarative knowledge. No effects on reactions were observed.

120-1 Key Mediators of the Work–Family Conflict and Job Performance Relationship

Although few studies have examined the work–family conflict-job performance relationship, we found no studies that assessed why this relationship exists. In this study, concentration, task avoidance, and fatigue were examined as mediators. Results showed that in some cases, concentration and fatigue mediate the work–family conflict-job performance relationship.

121-15 Can Learning Goal Orientation Decrease Student Withdrawal?

This research explores how optimism, stress, and work engagement can mediate the relationship between learning goal orientation (LGO) and student withdrawal. Structural equation modeling was used to test the conceptual model on undergraduate college students. LGO was found to ultimately decrease student withdrawal levels. Significant relationships between variables are discussed.

121-16 Perceived Organizational Support, Affective Commitment, and Performance: A Meta-Analytic Mediation

This meta-analysis examined the relationships between perceived organizational support and 11 types of performance. Correlations were higher for self-rated (vs. supervisor rated) performance, particularly for organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs). Combining these meta-analytic results with a previous organizational commitment meta-analysis indicated stronger mediation effects of commitment for OCBs.

This study investigated the prediction of employees’ proactive discretionary work behaviors from their social motivational orientations. Results indicated that status striving had a positive and communion striving had a negative relationship with employees’ personal initiative and taking charge behaviors, beyond the effect of their accomplishment striving.

We investigated gender-based stereotypes for organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) using the Implicit Association Test (IAT). Although we found some results consistent with hypotheses across 7 OCB dimensions, there was also evidence of in-group favoritism for both genders that has not been as evident in past research using more explicit measurement.

Prior research suggests that proactive employees benefit both themselves and their organizations. Yet, relatively little work has examined the underlying mediating mechanisms driving this relationship. Data from 1,993 practicing managers suggest that supervisors’ ratings of managers’ promotability are strongly influenced by ratings of proactive behavior and interpersonal leadership skills.

Cross-level conceptual differences between OCB and collective citizenship behavior are explored. A cross-level examination of CCB, OCB, and cultural orientation suggests that CCB has a top-down influence on OCB; CCB does not moderate the relationship between cultural orientation and OCB; and that, in Lebanon, idiocentrism is positively related to OCB.

Data from 4,255 employees across one organization’s 115 stores indicate that for financial outcomes, only manager competencies matter, but for shrink, culture and manager competencies help predict performance.

This study analyzed whether organizational variables that differentiate violent and nonviolent ideological operations functioned differently according to an organization’s structure. In addition, this study examined the relationship between organizational structure and innovative performance outcomes. Multivariate analyses of covariance (MANCOVAs) were conducted to describe the overall patterns found.

We factor analyzed 4 O*NET surveys. Because each scale is meant to measure a distinct construct, evidence of discriminant validity would be seen in high-dimensionality solutions and low communalities. Results revealed the opposite. Although O*NET constructs may be conceptually distinct, raters are unable to make empirically distinct ratings of them.

Motivation is important to the success of organizations. ProMES was applied to a collegiate women’s basketball team. Results suggest that ProMES can successfully be implemented within a sports setting, and qualitative data suggest support for the system within the team. Theoretical contributions and future research ideas are discussed.

147-29 Evaluating Dynamic Performance: A Field Replication and Extension

We found that mean-level past performance predicts performance ratings more strongly than past linear performance trends. Moreover, the effects of mean performance on current performance ratings are enhanced under 2 conditions: (a) when past performance variability is small and (b) when the linear trend of past performance is more positive.

147-30 Meta-Analysis of the Influence of Rater Affect on Performance Ratings

This meta-analysis reviewed the relationship between rater affect (trait affect, state affect, and liking) and performance ratings. Results reveal (a) substantial overlap between liking and ratings, (b) objective performance accounts for part of this relationship, and (c) rater source and job complexity moderates the relationship between liking and performance ratings.

147-31 Maximizing Controllability in Performance Measures

Performance measures that tap behaviors that are controllable by individuals being measured are important for an effective measurement system. We suggest ways of improving the controllability of measures and argue that it is generally quite feasible to improve the controllability of measures with these techniques.

147-32 Development of a Competency Model for Entry-Level Selection

We use personality to forecast performance in competencies critical for entry-level jobs. Using job analysis evidence and existing research, we identified competencies required for success in entry-level jobs and developed algorithms to predict performance. We present meta-analysis results validating the utility of these competency algorithms for selection into entry-level jobs.
