- ItemCategorizing supervisor reflections on risks of hiring persons with disabilities(2017) Annett, MichaelAlthough legislation prohibits employment discrimination related to disability such discrimination is regularly perpetuated and contributes to underemployment of persons with disabilities. I make the assertion that decision-maker's perceptions of risk shape their intention to hire, and actual hiring of, persons with disabilities. There is minimal qualitative research published regarding supervisors ' views on hiring persons with disabilities. This shortcoming is addressed though my solicitation and of supervisor reflections on hiring and declining to hire persons with disabilities. I also map these reflections to categories of risk perception to generate insight on the nature of and form of supervisor risk perceptions.
- ItemHuman resource risk and knowledge workers: propositions for theory and research(2019) Annett, MichaelThis article advocates further development of Human Resource Risk as an area of study in human resource management and offers related propositions in the context of knowledge workers. While human resource management practices have traditionally been characterized to improve efficiency through scientific management principles or employee optimization practices, the strategic risks knowledge workers remain less addressed. To address this gap, this paper discusses Human Resource Risk as an emerging and useful area of study, elaborates upon literature that address risk, and offers recommendations for theoretical development and further research.
- ItemThe moderating effect of situation strength on the relationship between personality and provision of effort(2006) Withey, Michael J.; Gellatly, Ian R.; Annett, MichaelIn this research, we examine whether effort‐allocation decisions are influenced by the strength of the situation, the personality characteristics of the people involved, and the interaction between these factors. Two role‐playing scenarios were created using contextual information (e.g., availability of suitable alternatives) that varied in situation strength. We measured the Big Five personality factors (emotional stability, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness) of 418 students prior to the role‐playing task and assessed effort‐provision decisions after they were exposed to one of the role‐playing scenarios. As predicted, our results showed that the effect of personality on provision of effort depended on the strength of the situation. The implications for personality research are discussed.
