'A construal-level theory of employment relationships and psychological contract fulfillment'

Principal speaker

Professor Jason Shaw

Abstract: In this seminar, Professor Shaw introduces and applies a new theory to the study of employment relationship policies and practices. Drawing on construal-level theory, he argues that employees evaluate their organizations' employment relationship policies at abstract levels, but evaluate employment relationship practices at concrete levels. From this theoretical view, he goes on to hypothesize that employees' psychological contract fulfilment perceptions would be highest when under mutual investment employee-organization relationship (EOR).

Shaw predicts further that supervisor organizational identification would strengthen (policies) or weaken (practices) the predicted EOR effects. The predictions are tested in multi-level tests among 1,593 employees and 284 supervisors in 44 South Korean companies.

Speaker: Jason D, Shaw holds various roles including Yeung Kim Man Professor in Business Administration, Chair of Management, and Director of the Centre for Leadership and Innovation in the Faculty of Business at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He received his PhD from the University of Arkansas. Jason's research interests include team effectiveness, the psychology of pay, and organizational turnover. His work can be found in Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and Journal of Applied Psychology, among others.
