School of Business' Barnes to speak at next Social Science Colloquium
Wednesday, November 17, 2010

The third Social Science Colloquium of the fall semester will be held Wednesday, Dec. 1, at noon in W231 Thompson Hall. The presenter will be Dr. Donald Barnes from the department of business administration. The title of his talk is, “Linking Key Antecedents and Outcomes of Employee engagement for the Service Firm.”

The presentation will include how recently the construct of employee engagement has garnered interest as an important indicator of employee performance. Unfortunately, much is unknown about this construct in marketing literature. In response, the present research aims to answer the following questions: can engagement be empirically distinguished from the related constructs of satisfaction and commitment; can engagement be facilitated by the firm; and what are outcomes of engagement?

The Social Science Colloquium is coordinated by Dr. Jack Croxton, professor of Psychology, and sponsored by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Pizza and beverages will be provided, and students, faculty and members of the community are welcome to attend this free event.
