|Title:||TIMING OF REWARD ALLOCATIONS||Authors:||NAI WEN DE, JARED||Keywords:||Team, Reward, Incentive, Allocation, Norms, Timing||Issue Date:||18-Nov-2016||Citation:||NAI WEN DE, JARED (2016-11-18). TIMING OF REWARD ALLOCATIONS. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||My dissertation investigates the effect of reward allocation timing on relational norms. The main theoretical point is that timing of reward allocation activates relational norms. I hypothesize that 1) upfront reward allocation activates market pricing relational norm, whereas 2) delayed reward allocation activates communal sharing relational norm (Fiske, 1992). I further hypothesize that the timing of team reward allocation is related to 3) cooperation, 4) conflict and 5) effort; these effects are mediated by the activation of relational norms. I investigate this phenomenon over two studies. A cross-sectional survey with focal founders and co-owners of 43 ventures found that delayed equity split agreements were marginally associated with greater market pricing relational norms and significantly associated with greater conflict. A laboratory experiment manipulating the timing of team reward allocations with 264 undergraduates (88 teams) found that delayed reward allocation increased market pricing relational norms, decreased conflict and increased effort.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/134679|
