Nicklin Publishes Two Papers in 2013
Jessica Nicklin, assistant professor of psychology in the the College of Arts and Sciences, recently published two papers in peer-reviewed journals.
The first, entitled "Work-family enrichment, support, and satisfaction: A test of mediation," found that supervisor and family support are positively related to work-to-family enrichment and family-to-work enrichment, respectively. In turn, enrichment is positively associated with job and family satisfaction. Finding ways to promote work-life balance has important implications for organizations and individuals.

The second paper, entitled "Expertise, counterfactual thinking, and fairness perceptions: A test of fairness theory," found that a decision-maker's perceived level of expertise is related to would and should counterfactual thinking, which is related to perceptions of fairness. Understanding what leads to perceptions of fairness at work is essential, as fairness perceptions are related to a number of important variables such as organizational commitment, employee satisfaction, and turnover intentions.
