about

Yanick Kemayou investigates how the socioeconomicbackground of organizational leaders can explain their management-relevantattitudes. The study provides theory development and first empirical tests of theimpact of leaders' socioeconomic background on their risk propensity, sense of controland justice perceptions. The model integrates sociological and socialpsychological research on class dynamics and attitudes.Yanick Kemayou uses cross-sectional data from the German Socioeconomic Panel totest the model. The empirical analyses provide robust support for thetheoretical ideas. Results show, for instance, that reproduced leaders with alower social distance toward broader classes exhibit more favorable justiceperceptions toward groups such as unskilled workers than distant reproduced leaders.The bottom line for organizations is that leaders are likely to assesssituations and persons differently because of their own socioeconomicbackground.

Dr. Yanick Kemayou researches and lectures at the Department of Management of the University of Paderborn. He is also a visiting lecturer at the Chair for International Personnel Economics of the University of Vienna and was visiting scholar at the Department of Strategy and Business Policy of HEC Paris.
