This research was supported by a research grant to Ulrich Wagner from the German Science Foundation (WA 1150/5-1, WA 1150/5-3). Purpose – Social loafing is described in the literature as a frequent problem reducing individuals' performance when working in groups. This paper aims to utilize the social identity approach and proposes that under conditions of heightened group salience social loafing can be reduced and turned into social laboring (i.e. increased performance). Design/methodology/approach – Two experimental studies are conducted to examine the impact of participant's group membership salience on task ...
The SIDE model provides an alternative explanation for effects of anonymity and other "deindividuating" factors that classic deindividuation theory (e.g., Diener, 1980; Zimbardo, 1969) cannot adequately explain. The model suggests that anonymity changes the relative salience of personal vs. social identity , and thereby can have a profound effect on group behavior.

Theory,” which states that identity is used “to refer to common identification with a collectivity or social category … thus creating a common culture .... therefore “role choices are a function of identities so conceptualized, and that identities within self are organized in a salience hierarchy reflecting the importance of hierarchy as an organizational principle in society.”26 ... market research, surveys and trends
india's budget: the good, the bad and the ugly
It’s been a week since India’s Union Budget was presented to Parliament, but it’s not too late to reflect on what it promises. The budget process follows the British model, and is a constitutionally required disclosure of the planned receipts and expenditures of the national government. At one stage, budget speeches by the Finance Minister began to be used for articulating the government’s economic reform agenda, but that practice has receded. Part of the reason for that has nothing to do with the salience of economic reform policies, but rather with the power of individual ministers – education reform was being discussed by the ... market research, surveys and trends

The following paper presents the social identity approach as a theoretical background for the understanding of organizational identification. The aim of the present paper is to examine how identification is affected by contextual salience and how it, in turn, affects extra-role behaviours. We manipulated the contextual salience of work-related categories (i.e. career, school, occupation) and compared them to a non-manipulated control group. Furthermore we measured identification to these categories and self-reported extra-role behaviours and tested for direct effects of contextual salience of these categories on identification ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Using diaries to explore the characteristics of work-related gossip: methodological considerations from exploratory multimethod research.(Special section) Article Excerpt The method problem that led to this paper was that of how to best capture and describe the concept of gossip in organizations, arising during exploratory research into the characteristics and function of gossip in nursing and health care organizations.

The importance of race is simply categorization of people. How do you visually identify another person. Ethnicity, what is the origin of all of these people you have assigned a racial category to? Culture, what are the societal values of these different categories of people. Cultural Identity, even though groups may be within a particular region, do they have an additional belief system, or identification which makes them different from society as a whole. The point is to develop a standard for sociological and anthropological research and studies. It is supposed to simply provide guidelines, but it is often misused as a ...
