Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

A study of white-collar workers in France has shown that when performance pressure was seen as a challenge, it had a positive effect on work engagement, but the oppositive was true when it was seen as a threat. Meanwhile, emotional stability moderated the effects as it made employees more likely to see performance pressures as a challenge.

Originality

The briefing saves busy executives, strategists and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
