Description:Tinbergen Institute Workshop 'Economics of the Workplace: using insights from organizational psychology and sociology to enrich economic theory'
Location:Rotterdam, Netherlands
Subject:Most people do not work only for money. Self-development, status, and self-image are only some of the parameters that determine where people work and how much effort they invest. A key role of a manager is to make sure that his Ś‘workersŚ’ are motivated to contribute to the value of the organization. To achieve this goal, managers rely on incentive pay, but also on performance feedback, delegation of authority, confidence management, and status symbols. The aim of the two-day workshop is to bring together scholars who study the Ś“Economics of the WorkplaceŚ” and who want to incorporate insights from organizational psychology and sociology. Researchers are encouraged to submit theoretical, empirical or experimental work in this area. [gemŐ_ŐŔ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
