Because the Dahl and Pierce study finds only tiny effects of pay for performance on prescriptions, their analysis runs the risk of reinforcing organizational reluctance to address practices that ha...

This Special Issue of Academy of Management Discovery (AMD) examines how the Sharing economy can reshape the traditional management theories and practices. We define “sharing economy” as a socio-economic ecosystem that commonly uses information technology to connect different stakeholders – individuals, companies, governments, and other – to share or access different products and services and to enable collaborative consumption (Belk, 2014; Hamari, Sjoklint, and Ukkonen, 2016; Wosskow, 2014). We...

We examine how pay practices, such as hourly payment, that promote an economic evaluation of time affect people’s choices about with whom to socialize off the job. Using multiple waves of the Ameri...

Both individuals and organizations can (and do) engage in unethical behaviors. Across six experiments, we examine how people’s ethical judgments are affected by whether the agent engaging in unethical action is a person or an organization. People believe organizations are more unethical than individuals, even when both agents engage in identical behaviors (Experiments 1–2). Using both mediation (Experiments 3a–3b) and moderation (Experiment 4) analytical approaches, we find that this effect is e...

Competence and sociability (warmth) are fundamental dimensions of social judgment in organizations. However, these qualities are frequently seen as negatively related, with mixed evidence on which is more important. In three studies (N = 993) we investigated the effects of reward interdependence on the preference for sociability versus competence. We predicted that reward interdependence would elicit a more instrumental, calculative mindset, which in turn, would lead individuals to value compete...

Psychological stress can cause decreases in well-being, increases in disease, and faster cellular death. Because the workplace is one prominent source of stress, it is both practically and theoretically useful to comprehensively understand which workplace practices may be stress inducing. In two experiments, we found that people nudged to be in an “economic mind-set” (who thought of time in terms of money while working on a realistic “at work” task) self-reported higher levels of psychological s...

Three studies explored the effects of uncertainty on people’s time preferences for financial gains and losses. In general, individuals seek to avoid uncertainty in situations of intertemporal choice. While holding the expected value of payouts constant, participants preferred immediate gains and losses if the future was uncertain, and preferred future gains and losses if the present was uncertain. This pattern of preferences is incompatible with current models of intertemporal choice, in which p...
