When do low-initiative employees feel responsible for change and speak up to managers?
This study focuses on circumstances when low-initiative employees feel responsible for change and speak up. We examine how the interpersonal work environment (i.e., transformational leadership and psychological safety) moderates the indirect relationship between personal initiative tendency and upward voice via felt responsibility. We collected multi-source survey data from 133 employees, their co-workers, and managers working in 41 automotive repair shops and hair salons. At the first stage of the indirect effect, managers' transformational leadership substituted for employees' personal initiative tendency in predicting t...

Work-family guilt as a straightjacket. An interview and diary study on consequences of mothers' work-family guilt
We examined consequences of work-family guilt with an interview study (N = 28) and daily diary study (N = 123). The interview study revealed that as a result of work-family guilt, parents tended to either reappraise the situation (e.g., emphasizing financial importance of work) or compensate for their guilt by adapting their parenting, adapting their work, and by sacrificing their leisure. Consistently, the diary study (where mothers completed online daily questionnaires over 8 consecutive days) revealed that higher work-family guilt was related to more traditional gender behaviors in mothers.

Train to retain: Training opportunities, positive reciprocity, and expected retirement age
This article contributes to research on older workers' sustainable employment by investigating the relation between training and expected retirement age. Past research has produced inconsistent findings, partly because studies rarely distinguish between the effects of training opportunities and actual training participation. To address this limitation, we examine the incremental effect of training opportunities over and above actual training participation. Grounded in social exchange theory, we argue that the effect of training opportunities on expected retirement age depends on employees' positive reciprocity orientation....
