  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Employees' perceptions of organisational justice -
           implications for job satisfaction in Nigeria
    • Abstract: Ogbechie, Rose; Adefisayo, Olubunmi
      This study investigated the ability of organisational justice to predict job satisfaction in the Nigerian context. Sample data were obtained from alumni of a Nigerian business school. A confirmatory factor analysis and hierarchical regression analysis approach were adopted as methods for analysis. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis showed that a three-factor model of organisational justice - distributive justice, formal procedural justice and interactional justice - provided a good fit for the dimensionality of justice in the context of this study. Hierarchical regression was used to test the ability of each justice dimension to predict job satisfaction. The result showed that interactional justice was the only significant predictor of job satisfaction. Theoretical and practical implications for the study are discussed.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Impacts of workplace bullying on workers' free will to
           communicate
    • Abstract: Sheikh, Abdullah Z; Akoto, Tuaneri
      Restructurings and downsizings have the potential to increase workplace bullying. This study looks at the impact of workplace bullying on victims' free will to communicate, during a large-scale restructuring process. The data were collected through semi-structured qualitative interviews. The findings suggest that managers are the predominant bullies and that they attempt to control employees by silencing them and by impacting on victims' free will to communicate. The study revealed that workplace bullying impacts on a victim's free will to communicate and bullies often achieve this through exploitation of a victim's insecurities and vulnerabilities. Lack of senior management support, retribution, distrust and exploitation of hierarchical position are some of the other factors which exacerbate bullying in the workplace. The findings have significant implications for managerial practices in regard to allowing victims of workplace bullying to exercise free will to communicate.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Drivers of employee commitment: Evidence from the 2011
           workplace employment relations survey of employees
    • Abstract: Bonau, Sarah
      This study explores determinants of three measures of employee commitment - shared values with the organisation, loyalty, and pride in working for the organisation - using data from the 2011 UK Workplace Employment Relations Survey of Employees. Variables represent employees' attitudes towards the job, the workplace and working at the workplace. Outcomes of descriptive modelling (ordered probit analysis) are contrasted with predictive modelling (decision trees using Gini-index and Gain-ratio splitting measures). Findings show two types of influence: aspects that encourage employee involvement, and those that foster development of the employee's skills. Pay satisfaction has been found to be negatively correlated to commitment. Findings are discussed and specific opportunities for leaders to leverage these insights are provided.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Perceived over-qualification and organisational
           cynicism: The role of work-related boredom and empowering leadership
    • Abstract: Gkorezis, Panagiotis; Vatou, Anastasia
      Recently, organisational cynicism has attracted increasing attention in the literature. However, we know little about how employees' experience of over-qualification relates to organisational cynicism. To address this gap, this study investigates the relationship between perceived over-qualification and organisational cynicism through the mediating role of work-related boredom and the moderating role of empowering leadership. Data were collected from 207 Greek employees in a retail organisation. Results offered support to our moderated mediation model indicating that work-related boredom mediates the link between perceived over-qualification and organisational cynicism and further that this indirect relationship is contingent on empowering leadership.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Change management and managerial subjectivity in an
           Indian commercial vehicle manufacturing plant
    • Abstract: Venkataraman, Anuratha
      This paper is an outcome of my doctoral ethnographic fieldwork spanning over ten months in TKDWAG9, a constituent of VehicleCo, one of India's oldest and largest commercial vehicle manufacturing firms. The primary goal of the paper is to understand the interplay of managerial subjectivity with context and infrastructural constraints, including the reception of transplanted templates of change management and work reorganisation by senior and middle-level managers in brownfield plants. It also seeks to explore how competing priorities and managerial subjectivity negatively impacted corporate management's change management program at various levels of plant management. It also registers that this reluctance to embrace the change rhetoric extended to workers as well. The paper integrates managerial sense-making with the conception and operation of change management and lean manufacturing in brownfield automotive plants.

  • Volume 18 Issue 1 - Starting from Scratch: Skilled Dual Career Migrant
           Couples and Their Search for Employment in South East Queensland
    • Abstract: Ressia, Susan
      Immigration policy in Australia consists of skilled, humanitarian and family reunion based intakes. In recent years the main policy focus has been on skilled migrants, who are critical to filling gaps in the labour market. However, there is little research on what happens to migrants and their families after arrival. This article focuses on the job seeking experiences of skilled migrant couples, including those who have children. It reports on exploratory research with 12 skilled migrants from Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) countries. The key findings show that barriers such as language and lack of local work experience persist, and that skilled dual-career migrant couples have to make a range of difficult choices as they seek employment. Therefore the additive effect of the various barriers and the complexities of negotiating them as a couple further impede migrants' successful engagement with the labour market.

  • Volume 18 Issue 1 - Is Diversity Management Past Its 'Use-by Date' for
           Professional and Managerial Women'
    • Abstract: Johnston, Sue; Teicher, Julian
      The concept of diversity management (DM) emerged in the US context and became a mechanism to facilitate workforce management in a way which would bypass the politically charged issues of affirmative action and equal opportunity. However despite DM initiatives having been in place in Australia for twenty years and progress in anti-discrimination legislation and an ongoing public policy debate, achieving equality at work for women in professional and managerial positions remains problematic. This paper commences with an overview of the development of DM, before moving onto a discussion of the institutional and organisational obstacles that women in professional and managerial positions face, when using flexible work practices as a means of balancing their work and home responsibilities. The paper concludes that DM is yet to deliver equity for professional and managerial women using flexible work practices in Australia and suggests that a new paradigm is needed.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Social support and expatriate spouses' wellbeing: The
           mediating role of cross-cultural adjustment
    • Abstract: Ramos, Hazel ML; Mustafa, Michael; Haddad, Anisa Rae
      International assignments constitute a significant life-changing and stressful event for the spouses of expatriates. Social support and cross-cultural adjustment has consistently been identified as critical determinants of overall expatriate assignment success. Social support constitutes a critical component of individuals' daily lives and can affect an individual's wellbeing. For expatriate spouses on international assignments, such social support can have added significance. However, to date little is known empirically of how the sources of expatriate spouses' social support affect their wellbeing. The current study seeks to address this issue from a cross-cultural adjustment perspective, by proposing a model which examines the mediating effects of cross-cultural adjustment on the relationship between sources of social support and expatriate spouse wellbeing. Based on a sample of 280 expatriate spouses we find that social support from family, friends and significant other effects wellbeing. However, cross-cultural adjustment only mediated the relationships between social support from friends and wellbeing.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Selecting staff for creative industries: The case of
           UK theatre companies
    • Abstract: Pritchard, Claire; MacVaugh, Jason
      This paper presents a study of the managerial use of Person-job and Person-organisation fit in the selection of non-artistic staff (such as technical, marketing, or front of house) in the creative industries. Using qualitative methods, senior UK theatre company recruiting managers were interviewed about the practices, values and rationales used during selection. Analysis was conducted using a narrative approach. Values congruence, assessed through interviews and pre-offer socialisation, is the decisive selection criterion due to the distinct working environment of the theatre, regardless of employment relationship, contract, or role. Person-organisation fit is applied during selection in this context to ensure cultural conformity to theatre in general, and to the current performance specifically.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Locum doctors - curse or blessing for hospitals'
    • Abstract: Ruiner, Caroline; Apitzsch, Birgit; Hagemann, Vera; Salloch, Sabine; Schons, Laura Marie; Wilkesmann, Maximiliane
      Against the background of healthcare reforms in Western European countries, hospitals increasingly engage locum doctors. As independent contractors, they work at the organisational core and are key players in the provision of high-quality healthcare services, making their engagement vital for organisations. Since little is known about locum doctors, and the effects of engaging them at the organisational core, we analyse the work attitudes and behaviours of locum doctors as independent contractors using the example of German hospitals. The analysis is based on a mixed-methods approach combining (1) a qualitative interview study of 21 interviewees, consisting of locum doctors, permanently employed physicians, and hospital representatives to explore the locum doctors' work engagement and to derive testable hypotheses, and (2) an online survey (n = 96) with a between-subjects experiment (group 1 n = 53, group 2 n = 49) as a formal test of the hypotheses. The results indicate that locum doctors are more engaged than permanently employed physicians and have the potential to significantly elevate the organisation's performance.

  • Volume 25 Issue 2 - Convergence or divergence: The impact of globalisation
           on employee relations in India and china
    • Abstract: Jha, Jatinder Kumar; Varkkey, Biju
      This paper explores the underlying principles of employee relations and the pattern of their evolution in India and China, in the context of globalisation. Globalisation has deeply influenced the way economies function and altered the national patterns of employee relations. Using evidences from available extant literature, we mapped the approaches taken by both India and China to highlight the impact of globalisation on employee relations and found that competition, followed by globalisation, and changes in the trade union structures, have prompted the introduction of the 'human' element to employee relations practices, particularly at the enterprise level; besides, a lucid convergence in employee relations patterns is also witnessed, alongside some divergences in the approaches. The points of convergence include the introduction of the human element in employee relations, labour flexibility, reduction in union membership and increased focus on individual employment contracts. Divergence is primarily witnessed in the degree of involvement of trade unions and governments in employee relations. The differences in patterns observed between the countries can be attributed to the unique institutional factors of each country.
