More Than a Feeling? Understudied Emotions in Organizational Scholarship Conference Paper uri icon


  • The study of employees? emotions and affective experiences at work has been a burgeoning area of interest, with prior empirical work demonstrating its effects on various work outcomes, ranging from task and interpersonal performance (e.g., Staw Pelled Brief Gooty et al., 2009). The proposed presenter symposium aims to address this limitation of extant work, with each of the five papers focusing on the singular and distinct effects of varying discrete emotions (guilt, pride, boredom, envy, and loneliness). In doing so, we provide critical insight on the cognitive, motivational, and behavioral processes and outcomes associated with employees? experiences of discrete emotional states.
