Group and Organization Management announced the winners of their Best Micro Paper for 2013 and Best Macro Paper for 2013 at this year’s Academy of Management Conference!

Eric Lamm, Jennifer Tosti-Kharas, and Eric G. Williams all of San Francisco State University took home the Best Micro Paper for 2013 for their article “Read this Article, but Don’t Print It! Organizational Citizenship Behavior Toward the Environment” which appeared in the April 2013 issue of Group and Organization Management!

The abstract:

This article contributes to the growing research interest on sustainability-directed citizenship behaviors by helping to develop the construct of organizational citizenship behaviors (OCBs) toward the environment, defined as voluntary behavior not specified in official job descriptions that, through the combined efforts of individual employees, help to make the organization and/or society more sustainable. Hypotheses predict the extent to which employees’ beliefs about their organization and about sustainability in general will be associated with OCBs toward the environment. The hypotheses are tested via a field survey of 733 employees working in a variety of occupations. Regression results indicated that OCBs toward the environment were related to, yet distinct from, OCBs in general, perceived organizational support (POS), affective commitment (AC), and beliefs that sustainability is important both in general and for one’s current organization. The article concludes with theoretical implications for research on sustainability and extra-role behaviors as well as the practical implications for managers wishing to foster sustainability in their organization.

Patrick Dawson of the University of Aberdeen and Peter McLean of the University of Wollongong are the winners of the Best Macro Paper of 2013 for their article entitled “Miners’ Tales: Stories and the Storying Process for Understanding the Collective Sense-Making of Employees During Contested Change” from the April 2013 issue.

The abstract:

This article examines the extent to which the storying lens provides useful purchase in understanding the sensemaking processes that occur in the hegemonic struggle over collective identities during contested change. Our interest is in how stories are shaped within the context of workplace change; the limitations of existing story types for making sense of the data; temporality as it relates to change processes and story types; and the use of stories to legitimate identity in the power-political dynamics of change. The empirical material draws on a study of miners’ storied responses to the introduction of a performance appraisal system for underground workers at an Australian colliery.
