New Publication on Abusive Supervision at Work

Abused followers would often be better off if they were able to end the abusive relationship. Yet, doing so can be extremely difficult and many people end up being trapped at work with an abusive supervisor. In this paper, we (Kimberley Breevaart, Barbara Wisse, & Birgit Schyns) examine what makes it so hard for followers to leave and as such, what enables the abuse to continue over time. Specifically, we address barriers that prevent followers from escaping an abusive supervisory relationship on a societal (e.g., laws), organizational (e.g., organizational policies and practices), and personal level (e.g., beliefs and values), and explain how these barriers can be overcome. Boudewijn Wisse designed the model.

Roundtable discussion 'Corona Dialoog' of the Dagblad van het Noorden

Roundtable discussion 'Corona Dialoog' of the Dagblad van het Noorden

Susanne Scheibe was a guest in the Corona Dialoog of the Dagblad van het Noorden about corona's impact on work and careers. In the roundtable discussion, two 'career switchers' talked about the way in which Corona put a hold to their job and challenged them to seek new career paths. The conversation then touched workplace trends - such as working from home, and moving from traditional careers (where people work for one organization throughout their working life) to 'boundaryless' careers (where working life is split into different career episodes) - that were already present pre-Corona but intensified ever since the pandemic hit.
