IC University of Organization Assistant Professor Dr. John Vongas to publish experimental analyze in Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences
Congratulations to Dr. John Vongas and his co-authors, Dr. John Fiset of Saint Mary’s College (Halifax, Canada) and Raghid Al Hajj of the Gulf University for Science and Technological innovation (Kuwait City, Kuwait), who lately had their paper, Aiding an Desirable Team that Ostracized Me: An Experimental Vignette Examine, recognized for publication in Canadian Journal of Administrative Sciences.
What occurs to us when we are socially excluded or ostracized by a bodily desirable group in the office? In this posting, we take a look at the affect of an ostracizing group’s actual physical attractiveness on the romantic relationship involving place of work ostracism and a victim’s organizational citizenship behaviors directed toward the group (or OCBG). Study has very long ignored contextual functions of ostracism at work. Utilizing an experimental vignette methodology (N = 312), we located that bodily attractiveness was important in determining the system by which ostracism affected OCBG. The victims’ social stress served as a mediator via which ostracism influenced OCBG when the ostracizing group was considered to be very low on attractiveness. On the other hand, the destructive direct effect among ostracism and OCBG was noticed only when team attractiveness was significant. Our conclusions have implications for comprehension the interaction in between victims’ individual dissimilarities and the context in which place of work ostracism is manifested.
