Abstract The present study examines the experiences of gender and sexual minority employees regarding their ability to secure decent work. Specifically, we extend psychology of working theory (PWT) by integrating social identity theory and incorporating psychological ownership into the model. We tested our hypotheses in a sample of 240 gender and sexual minority employees gathering data at three time points over a two-week period. Financial strain, work volition, and psychological ownership were...

Abstract In this paper we report a time-lagged study over six months analyzing the indirect effect of protean career orientation on changes in turnover intentions via personal work goal progress in a sample of millennial employees. Consistent with protean career theory and social exchange theory, we found that protean career orientation indirectly leads to decreases in turnover intentions over time and this effect was moderated by organizational career management practices. This effect was obser...

Abstract Requests for flexible work practices have become commonplace, with the aim of helping employees perform more effectively in both their private and work lives. One path for employees to secure flexible work is through the negotiation of individualized work arrangements, also known as “i-deals”. This study provides valuable insights into the nomological network of schedule-flexibility i-deals by drawing on the Conservation of Resources (COR) theory. We propose that, via resource accumulat...

Abstract Organizations aiming to help their employees in fostering their human capital offer training, but not all employees participate. Some organizations therefore experiment with training vouchers that typically offer financial means for training to motivate training participation. However, the effectiveness of such vouchers remains suboptimal, arguably due to lack of clarity on- and variation in the mechanisms of such vouchers. The present paper uniquely employs Conservation of Resources th...

Abstract Word-of-mouth (WOM) is a valued source of employment information for job seekers. Given mixed prior research findings, we do not yet understand when and why negative WOM affects applicant decision-making. Building on signaling theory and brand equity literature, we propose that the strength of the negative signal provided by negative WOM varies depending on applicants' knowledge of an employer and its image and reputation, conceptualized as employer brand equity. First, in an experiment...

Abstract Drawing on theories of self-regulation we propose that the nature of the activities performed at work, particularly those requiring self-control, can play an important role in the work-to-nonwork conflict process. We argue that because functional nonwork behavior requires continued self-control after work, occurrences of work-to-nonwork conflict will be more likely when one's limited self-control resources are expended during the day, and incidents of subsequent self-control failure in ...

Abstract This research aims to expand the understanding of how fathers' daily parental leave experiences are affected by the interplay of organizational influences and fathers' leave behavior. Using data from a diary study involving fathers on parental leave from Germany and Austria (N = 108), we examined the impact of family-supportive organizational perceptions and length of leave on fathers' daily work-related worries. With regard to within-person effects, we took a closer look at the relatio...

Abstract We integrate behavioral contagion and faultline perspectives to understand the association between workgroup context and individuals' coping with home demands. Our central contention is that workgroup members who are similar to one another come to adopt similar strategies for coping with home demands. To assess similarity, we use faultline techniques based on average silhouette width to differentiate an individual's workgroup into an in-group versus out-group based on a set of theoretic...

Abstract This study examines how employees assess demands-abilities and needs-supplies across their work lifespan, and how they better adjust to their work. Based on person-environment fit theory, the job design and the lifespan literatures, and using interviews with a sample of 40 professional ballet dancers, our research shows how the interplay between demands, abilities, needs, organizational resources, and regulation strategies contributes to a process of adjustment, and consequently enhance...

Abstract The vast majority of vocational research adopts a variable-centered approach. Implicit in this approach is the assumption that the population under study is homogeneous, and that therefore we can use a set of “averaged” parameters to describe it. Person-centered methods are a family of methods that relax this assumption of population homogeneity, viewing the individual as holistic and paying more attention to how specific configurations of variables, present in different subgroups of th...
