Tie Content and Individual Outcomes in Organizations

SUNBELT Conference 2018
July 1, 2018
10:40 to 12:20

I organized a session during SUNBELT 2018 on tie content and individual outcomes in organizations. During the session, five authors presented their papers in which they explore the type of relationships that employees have with each other and their effects on outcomes such as creativity and conflict.

The broader goal of this session was to zoom in on the content of ties and explore how individual outcomes and network characteristics differ based on the type of relationship that people have with each other. Researchers acknowledge the fact that prior work has mainly focused on network structure at the expense of content, and that it is important to further develop our understanding of the different types of dyadic phenomena and their consequences.

The session took place on Sunday, July 1 from 10:40 to 12:20 in the Maskeradezaal room of the Academiegebouw in Utrecht.

I want to thank all participants for their presentations!
