Cultural Issues in Organizations.
This document contains four symposium papers on cultural issues in organizations. "Emotion Management and Organizational Functions: A Study of Action in a Not-for-Profit Organization" (Jamie Callahan Fabian) uses Hochschild's emotion systems theory and Parsons' social systems theory to explain why members of an organization managed their experience and/or expression of emotion. "Communities in the Workplace" (Darlene Russ-Eft) discusses a study that analyzed 401 critical incidents from 119 employees in 22 organizations in the United States and Canada and identified factors affecting the development of communities in the workplace. "Show Me the Money: Moderators of Satisfaction for University Administrators" (Jamie Waclawski, Allan H. Church) analyzes organizational survey data collected from 870 members of the administrative staff in a large university setting and demonstrates that workers with prior experience in academia are significantly more satisfied with their current jobs than their counterparts are. "Questioning the Viability of a Women's Network as a Management Development Activity" (Linda M. Hite, Kimberly S. McDonald) draws upon qualitative and quantitative data to show that, despite their benefits, structured networks with meeting times and membership lists may be less viable in the current climate than they were a few years ago.
