Emerging Perspectives on Values in Organizations. Research in Social Issues in Management Series.
Gilliland, Stephen W., Ed.; Steiner, Dirk D., Ed.; Skarlicki, Daniel P., Ed.
This volume considers the central role of values inherent in fairness perceptions and offers new ways to view values related to fairness, as well as work-related values, their antecedents, and consequences. Values are important because they have been shown to predict preferences, attitudes, perceptions, and behavior in organizations. The first section of the book "Value-Based Theories in Organizations" addresses issues such as how to define, classify, and study values and how values and norms affect the way the people perceive or construe events. The chapters in this section are as follows: "When and Why are Values Important in Organizations?" (Maierhofer et al.); "Values and Deservingness in the Context of Organizations" (Feather); "Social Identity and Fairness Judgements" (Tyler, Blader); "Toward a Normative Model of Justice" (Leung, Tong). The second section "Impact and Applications of Values in Organizations" considers individual differences in values, the role of values in leadership, how values relate to passion, and the link between values and emotion. The chapters in this section are as follows: "The Importance of Money as an Individual Difference Attribute" (Mickel et al.); "Is Values-Based Leadership Ethical Leadership?" (Brown, TreviOo); "Passion at Work: Toward a New Conceptualization" (Vallerand, Houlfort); "Emotional Displays and Social Identity: Emotional Investment in Organizations" (Jones et al.). Chapters contain substantial references. (MO)
