This exploratory study investigates the work-family experiences of Airbnb host...

Furthermore, we explore the extent to which employee experiences of different levels of government effectiveness (GE...

Purpose While studies have established that networking is an investment in an individual's career that pays off, recent research has begun to examine the potential costs of networking.

An extensive body of research has studied the antecedents and outcomes of gender differences at the workplace. The differential returns in objective career success (defined by promotions and salary) have been primarily attributed to individual and organizational factors. Yet, other than the effects of national culture and state interventions to pro...

This paper examines how family-supportive supervisor behaviours (FSSBs) are associated with employees' in-role job performance and perceived promotability, and how prosocial motivation moderates these associations. Drawing on the norm of reciprocity from social exchange theory; we propose that FSSBs are positively associated with employees' in-role...

The topic of work-to-family is not new to researchers or practitioners, but what is not yet known is what affects the degree to which people are tolerant of work to family interruptions, and whether this matters for individual and organizational outcomes.

As postulated by career theories, studies have established that networking is an investment into an individual’s career that pays off. We suggest that this research has neglected potential negative consequences of networking and develop a framework to examine costs of networking. In elaborating a cost-benefit approach that draws upon conservation o...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to suggest a comprehensive framework to elucidate the relationship between personality and networking. Using the Five Factor Model as a framework, the paper aims to argue that traits tapping into social (i.e. extraversion, agreeableness) and informational (i.e. openness to experience) features are relevant in...

We introduce motivation theory as a way of understanding the decision-making process in the work and family context. We use core concepts from motivation theory - extrinsic, intrinsic and prosocial motivation - and link them to motivational learning to build our framework. We then propose a framework illustrating motivational factors that influence...

This conceptual paper proposes a model of how networks, instrumental for careers, are developed. In general, research in social networks and careers has taken a social deterministic stance. However, people select with whom to network and whether or not to pursue the relations. Thus, networks which are composed of multiple relationships require expl...
