Insights from Thought Leaders

Employees help each other less during economic downturns

Associate Professor Marko Pitesa
Nov 2016

In this podcast, Assoc Prof Marko Pitesa discusses his research which found that people are less willing to help each other at work when the economic outlook darkens. This is due to a behaviour termed ‘zero-sum construal of success’ - a view that one person’s success requires someone else to fail. Assoc Prof Pitesa highlights how managers can strengthen workforce cohesion to mitigate this behaviour.
