Personal lives? The effects of nonwork behaviors on organizational image Academic Article uri icon


  • Organizational leaders may respond to employee nonwork behaviors because of the possible influence on organizational image. We describe a typology of nonwork behaviors and discuss their potential implications for organizational image. We explore conditions under which organizational leaders may attempt to control employee nonwork behaviors and review the available alternatives for organizational control. We conclude by discussing the theoretical and practical implications of research on nonwork behavior.
