Hr Performance Auditing: An Australian Story, Chris Andrews 2015 Bond University

Hr Performance Auditing: An Australian Story, Chris Andrews

Faculty of Business Publications

Extract:

This explanatory paper covers some of the background to an Australian HR Performance Auditing Case Study (2005 – 2007). The case study was undertaken as a formal component of the 2005 Internal Audit plan for the host organisation, QUT University, located in south-east Queensland, Australia. The literature on human resource performance evaluation identified HR Auditing as an existing (but unpopular) method of evaluating human resource activities. In reality most commentators had difficulty in explaining what HR Auditing actually involved and few differentiated the topic based on an independence criterion.


Firing Threats: Incentive Effects And Impression Management, Brice Corgnet, Roberto Hernan-Gonzalez, Stephen J. Rassenti 2015 Chapman University

Firing Threats: Incentive Effects And Impression Management, Brice Corgnet, Roberto Hernan-Gonzalez, Stephen J. Rassenti

Economics Faculty Articles and Research

We study the effect of firing threats in a virtual workplace that reproduces features of existing organizations. We show that organizations in which bosses can fire up to one third of their workforce produce twice as much as organizations for which firing is not possible. Firing threats sharply decrease on-the-job leisure. Nevertheless, organizations endowed with firing threats underperformed those using individual incentives. In the presence of firing threats, employees engage in impression management activities to be seen as hard-working individuals in line with our model. Finally, production levels dropped substantially when the threat of being fired was removed, whereas on-the-job ...

The Easy Expensive Way Doesn't Work. Why Not Try The Difficult Cheap Way?, Karl A. Koehler 2015 Consultant

The Easy Expensive Way Doesn't Work. Why Not Try The Difficult Cheap Way?, Karl A. Koehler

Global Policy Research Institute (GPRI) Policy Briefs

Smokestack chasing and related ad hoc efforts to create techno/commercial clusters are examples of failed economic development activities, because they are generally poorly integrated into the networks of interactions that support a local, state, or national economy. This is a general problem because it is difficult to characterize and understand such complex webs of interactions. Thus, it is the dynamic complexity of combined state innovation systems, related policy systems, and the broader economy that stands between state governors and legislators, their piecemeal enactment of ‘economic development initiatives’, and the economic growth they desire. This brief describes the social, governmental ...


Narcissism And Leadership: A Meta-Analytic Review Of Linear And Nonlinear Relationships, Emily Grijalva, Peter D. Harms, Daniel A. Newman, Blaine H. Gaddis, R. Chris Fraley 2015 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Narcissism And Leadership: A Meta-Analytic Review Of Linear And Nonlinear Relationships, Emily Grijalva, Peter D. Harms, Daniel A. Newman, Blaine H. Gaddis, R. Chris Fraley

P. D. Harms Publications

Past empirical studies relating narcissism to leadership have offered mixed results. This study integrates prior research findings via meta-analysis to make four contributions to theory on narcissism and leadership, by (a) distinguishing between leadership emergence and leadership effectiveness, to reveal that narcissism displays a positive relationship with leadership emergence, but no relationship with leadership effectiveness; (b) showing narcissism’s positive effect on leadership emergence can be explained by leader extraversion; (c) demonstrating that whereas observer-reported leadership effectiveness ratings (e.g., supervisor-report, subordinate-report, and peer-report) are not related to narcissism, self-reported leadership effectiveness ratings are positively related to narcissism; and (d ...


How Functionalist And Process Approaches To Behavior Can Explain Trait Covariation, Dustin Wood, Molly Hensler Gardner, Peter D. Harms 2015 Wake Forest University

How Functionalist And Process Approaches To Behavior Can Explain Trait Covariation, Dustin Wood, Molly Hensler Gardner, Peter D. Harms

P. D. Harms Publications

Factors identified in investigations of trait structure (e.g., the Big Five) are sometimes understood as explanations or sources of the covariation of distinct behavioral traits, as when extraversion is suggested to underlie the covariation of assertiveness and sociability. Here, we detail how trait covariation can alternatively be understood as arising from units common to functionalist and process frameworks, such as self-efficacies, expectancies, values, and goals. Specifically, the expected covariation between two behavioral traits should be increased when a specific process variable tends to indicate the functionality of both traits simultaneously. In 2 empirical illustrations, we identify a wide array ...

Workplace Factors As Determinants Of Job Commitment Among Senior Non-Teaching Staff Of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, Olukunle Saheed Oludeyi 2015 Tai Solarin University of Education, Ogun State, Nigeria

Workplace Factors As Determinants Of Job Commitment Among Senior Non-Teaching Staff Of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, Olukunle Saheed Oludeyi

Olukunle Saheed, OLUDEYI

Studies have focused on workplace environment in relations to health and safety of workers in health industries. There is however scanty empirical research on workplace environmental factors and employee job commitment in universities. While others showed the connection between work environment and job attitude across organisations, studies on workplace environment which are conducted in the university setting seem to focus on the influence of university environment on job performance of teaching staff and not on job commitment among senior non-teaching staff. Others focus their study on job commitment among lecturers. In a bid to fill this gap, this research work ...
