    Description: Dr. McCallum's study, with 335 managers and professionals in a health system, demonstrated that networking behavior focused within a workplace was positively related with both affective commitment and normative commitment. Why? Perhaps people who network this way develop better relationships with colleagues they can call on for work-related assistance or social support if needed. Having trusted coworkers improves their attachment to the organization as well as their desire to reciprocate when others seek their help. In contrast, networking with people outside of work was negatively related to normative commitment. Perhaps the relationships with professional peers puts workplace obligation into a different context. Networking, either at work or outside of work, was not related with continuance commitment, meaning they are no more or less likely to feel they have to stay.

2013
  • Bennett, B., & Zama A. (2013, October). Organizational Structure and Strategy: Analysis of the Fleet Functions of a Mid-size Midwestern City. Paper presented at the Midwest Academy of Management meeting Milwaukee, WI.
  • Coe, M. & Delaney, J. (2013). Trabeck Prepares for IFRS: An IFRS Case Study. Journal of Accounting Education, 31(1), 53-67.
    Description: Dr. Coe studied factors that influenced students' intentions to take the CPA exam. He surveyed 235 upper-division accounting majors from Iowa and Illinois in both public and private colleges and universities. Surprisingly, cost to prepare and take the CPA exam was not related to intentions to take the CPA exam. However, social support and having a role model who was a CPA were both positively and significantly related to intentions to take the exam. The results indicated that more work needs to be done to provide accounting students with role models who are CPAs, to inform students of the benefits of being a CPA, and to educate students that the CPA exam can be taken in a 120 credit hour jurisdiction.
