    Frequent Change and Turnover Intention: The Moderating Role of Ethical Leadership
    with Jeroen Stouten and Martin Euwema
    Journal of Business Ethics 134 (2): 311-322. 2016.
    In a multi-source study, we examine how frequent change interacts with ethical leadership to reduce turnover intentions. We argue that ethical leaders enhance employees’ state self-esteem, which explains the moderating effect of ethical leadership. Results from 124 employee-coworker-supervisor triads revealed that ethical leadership moderated the relationship between frequent change and turnover intention such that the relationship was positive only when ethical leadership was low. The moderatin…Read more

    The Mind is Willing, but the Situation Constrains: Why and When Leader Conscientiousness Relates to Ethical Leadership
    with Michelle C. Bligh, Babatunde Ogunfowora, Liang Guo, and Omale A. Garba
    Journal of Business Ethics 155 (1): 75-89. 2019.
    While previous research has established that employees who have a more conscientious leader are more likely to perceive that their leader is ethical, the underlying mechanisms and boundary conditions of this linkage remain unknown. In order to better understand the relationship between leader conscientiousness and ethical leadership, we examine the potential mediating role of leader moral reflectiveness, as well as the potential moderating role of decision-making autonomy. Drawing from social co…Read more

    Drawing from the group engagement model and the moral conviction literature, we propose that perceived leader ethical conviction moderates the relationship between ethical leadership and employee OCB as well as deviance. In a field study of employees from various industries and a scenario-based experiment, we revealed that both the positive relation between ethical leadership and employee OCB and the negative relation between ethical leadership and employee deviance are more pronounced when lead…Read more

    A Multilevel Analysis of the Relationship Between Ethical Leadership and Ostracism: The Roles of Relational Climate, Employee Mindfulness, and Work Unit Structure
    with Amanda Christensen-Salem, Fred O. Walumbwa, Liang Guo, and Everlyne Misati
    Journal of Business Ethics 171 (3): 619-638. 2020.
    Drawing on insights from social learning and social cognitive perspectives and research on the multilevel reality of leadership influences, we developed and tested a multilevel model that examines mechanisms and conditions through which ethical leadership deters work unit- and individual-level ostracism. Based on two field studies using multiple measurement points, we found that at the work unit level of analysis, relational climate partially mediates the negative relationship between ethical le…Read more

    Moral Burden of Bottom-Line Pursuits: How and When Perceptions of Top Management Bottom-Line Mentality Inhibit Supervisors’ Ethical Leadership Practices
    with Rebecca L. Greenbaum, Matthew J. Quade, Liang Guo, and Yun Chung Kim
    Journal of Business Ethics 174 (1): 109-123. 2020.
    Drawing on theoretical work on humans’ adaptive capacity, we propose that supervisors’ perception of top management’s high bottom-line mentality (BLM) has a dysfunctional effect on their ethical leadership practices. Specifically, we suggest that these perceptions hinder supervisors’ empathy, which eventuates in less ethical leadership practices. We also investigate, in a first-stage moderated mediation model, how supervisors high in trait mindfulness are resistant to the ill effects of percepti…Read more

    The Ethical, Societal, and Global Implications of Crowdsourcing Research
    with Shuili Du, Premilla D’Cruz, Edina Doci, Lucia Garcia-Lorenzo, Louise Hassan, Gazi Islam, Alex Newman, Ernesto Noronha, and Suzanne van Gils
    Journal of Business Ethics 1-16. forthcoming.
    Online crowdsourcing platforms have rapidly become a popular source of data collection. Despite the various advantages these platforms offer, there are substantial concerns regarding not only data validity issues, but also the ethical, societal, and global ramifications arising from the prevalent use of online crowdsourcing platforms. This paper seeks to expand the dialogue by examining both the “internal” aspects of crowdsourcing research practices, such as data quality issues, reporting transp…Read more
