Testing a Multi-level Theory of Emotion in Organisations (2003–2005)

Affective moods and emotions at work are now recognised internationally as important determinants of employee attitudes and behaviours at work, including job satisfaction, turnover, and performance. This collaborative project involves research teams in Australia and the United States, and entails three studies of the role of emotions in organisations. Based on experience-sampling methods, where participants report real-time data using hand-held computers, the studies span within-person, between-persons, leadership, group, and organisational levels of analysis. The project also extends previous research by studying organisations as a source of depletion of regulatory resources that limit employees' potential to perform to their ability. ''
