The objective of this Incubator is to stimulate research in the area of multiple jobholding (MJH), a long-neglected topic in organizational behavior. We first discuss the prevalence of, and motivation for, MJH and then discuss possible dangers and benefits of MJH. Throughout, we discuss ideas for future research.
