Singh publishes research on performance management in Journal of Business Research

Barjinder Singh, assistant professor of management, researched the relationship between three dimensions of performance appraisal fairness, leader-member exchange, and motivation to improve performance.

Management professor Barjinder Singh’s research on performance appraisal fairness, leader-member exchange, and motivation to improve performance was recently published in the Journal of Business Research.

Barjinder Singh, assistant professor of management, published his research in Journal of Business Research.

The paper, “Performance appraisal fairness, leader member exchange and motivation to improve performance: A study of U.S. and Mexican employees,” was co-authored by Singh, T.T.  Selvajaran, associate professor of management at California State University, and Stephanie Solansky, associate professor of management at Texas State University. 

The authors researched three fairness dimensions in relation to leader-member exchange, and motivation to improve performance and proposed that national culture would moderate fairness dimensions-leader-member exchange and leader-member exchange-motivation to improve performance relationships. The researchers used a survey of employees in the United States and Mexico to gather data.

The paper was published in Volume 85 of the journal.

Prior to joining Elon, Singh was an assistant professor of management at School of Business Administration, University of Houston-Victoria, where he was also promoted to associate professor with tenure. Singh's teaching interests include organizational behavior, human resource management, and business ethics.

The Journal of Business Research applies theory to actual business situations.  It aids the application of empirical research to practical situations of the business world.
