Bhagat Wins Eastern Academy of Management Best Paper Award

For release:  June 16, 2011

Rabi Bhagat, Professor of Management, and former Department of Management doctoral student Tej Billing, now an Assistant Professor at Rowan University, have won a Best Paper Award at the Eastern Academy of Management. The paper, "A Cross National Study on Work Overload, Work Family Conflict and Strain: The Moderating Role of Planning and Scheduling", involved the development of a theoretical framework using cultural dimensions of vertical-horizontal individualism and collectivism conceptualized at individual level to predict work-family conflict. The theoretical model also conceptualized a positive relationship between work-family conflict and turnover intentions. This model was empirically tested in four dissimilar national contexts. The findings of the multinational study emphasize the importance of understanding the role of cultural values as antecedents of work-family conflict.
