Beyond Status: Relating Status Inequality to Performance and Health in Teams
Christie, Amy M.; Barling, Julian
Journal of Applied Psychology, v95 n5 p920-934 Sep 2010
Status structures in organizations are ubiquitous yet largely ignored in organizational research. We offer a conceptualization of team status inequality, or the extent to which status positions on a team are dispersed. Status inequality is hypothesized to be negatively related to individual performance and physical health for low-status individuals when uncooperative behavior is high. Trajectories of the outcomes across time are also explored. Analyses using multilevel modeling largely support our hypotheses in a sample of National Basketball Association players across six time points from 2000 to 2005. (Contains 2 footnotes, 5 tables, and 4 figures.)
