- Moving from the developing to the developed: compensation disparities of Chinese expatriates
Kathy Ning Shen and Xuanli Xie
Article first published online: 20 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1744-7941.12113
- This research examines Chinese expatriates working in Chinese multinational companies (MNC) subsidiaries in the United Arab Emirates, who receive less pay than locals/self-initiated expatriates from the host country.
- Three salient social referents are used by Chinese expatriates to assess distributive justice, i.e. employees working in mainland China, locals/self-initiated expatriates from the host country, and employees working in developed country multinational companies in the host country.
- Compensation disparity vis-à-vis employees working in mainland China and in international multinational companies has a significant effect on perceived distributive justice regarding respective referents.
- Equity and non-monetary rewards are stable influential factors for perceived distributive justice, besides compensation disparity; however, compensation disparity is not used when it comes to assessing perceived distributive justice compared to locals in the host country.
- Only equity and non-monetary rewards have significant effects on expatriation satisfaction, not perceived distributive justice.
- The employability of newcomer self-initiated expatriates in China: an employers' perspective
Article first published online: 4 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1744-7941.12112
- The employability of newcomer SIEs is perceived as very low and the group is seen as offering a weak staffing alternative in China.
- Both organisational and contextual drivers define the value of the person-related factors that contribute to employability, and whether those attributes enhance or diminish the value of an employee.
- Some core characteristics associated with SIEs such as their high mobility, temporary employment status, protean attitude, and their individualistic approach to performing a job seem to diminish their employability.
- Devolving authority: the impact of giving public schools power to hire staff
Mihajla Gavin and Susan McGrath-Champ
Article first published online: 1 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1744-7941.12110
- Devolution allows school principals to augment staffing composition and deliver greater decision-making authority.
- Devolution affords principals greater power to hire teacher-specialists to cater to local needs.
- Devolutionary reforms affect ‘hard-to-staff’ schools in differential and geographically diverse ways.
- The impact of coaching orientation on subordinate performance: the moderating effects of implicit person theory and LMX
Wen-Jeng Lin, Chun-Yu Lin and Yu-Hsuan Chang
Article first published online: 22 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/1744-7941.12107
- Promotion-oriented coaching was positively correlated with subordinate performance, and promotion-oriented coaching relative to prevention-oriented coaching had a higher effect on subordinate performance.
- The better regulatory fit of individuals with incremental beliefs relative to those with entity beliefs had an additive effect on coachees’ positive performance.
- The subordinates in higher quality LMX relationships had better performance following a promotion-oriented coaching.
- LMX had a main effect on the subordinate performance following prevention-oriented coaching, which implies a compensatory effect between a high-quality LMX relationship and a prevention coaching orientation.
