Sustainability

Employee ethical behaviors are a critical criterion for organizations seeking to implement socially responsible, ethical business practices. In this article, we present a critical review of theoretical conceptualizations, taxonomies, and assessment of employee (un)ethical behaviors.

We present and provide support for a theoretical framework conceptualizing negative commuting-health relations as a stress-strain process. Stress strongly accounts for commuting-health relations, particularly among parents. We discuss implications for commuting research and interventions.

This chapter reviews conceptualizations of sustainability for organizations at both the individual and firm levels. We discuss the structure of sustainable actions, measurement issues, and antecedents and consequences of sustainability.

We examine the relation between employee age and green behavior in a meta-analysis of samples from 11 countries. Age shows small positive relations with some forms of employee green behavior.

We review the structure of employee green behaviors, their distinction from similar constructs, and their antecedents, as well as methods organizations can use to motivate environmental sustainability in their employees.

We meta-analytically examine the relations between age and a variety of environmental sustainability constructs, including environmental concern, attitudes, values, intentions, and behaviors. Age shows negligible to small relations with sustainability.

We review research on the association of demographic characteristics, including gender, age, education, and socioeconomic status, with environmental attitudes and behaviors.

There is an often-lamented gap between organizational sustainability and environmental sustainability. We examine the role of employee commitment in mutually supporting these two sustainability goals.
