Baylor University: Feelings of Ethical Superiority Can Lead to Workplace Ostracism, Social Undermining, Baylor Study Says

April 24, 2018
A new Baylor University study by Matthew Quade, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, shows that feelings of ethical superiority can cause a chain reaction that is detrimental to employees, their coworkers and their organizations. Feelings of ethical superiority by an employee can lead to negative emotions toward “less ethical” coworkers. Those negative emotions can be amplified if the employee doesn’t produce as well as that coworker. And, furthermore, those negative emotions can lead to mistreatment and/or ostracism (social exclusion) of that less ethical, higher-performing coworker. “The managerial implication is that we need to create environments where ethics and performance are both rewarded,” Quade said. (Eric Eckert, assistant director of Media Communications, pitched this story nationally.)

BrightSurf.com: Where you live is more influential than where you worship in shaping racial attitudes

April 23, 2018
Whites in multiracial congregations have more diverse friendship networks and are more comfortable with minorities, but that is due more to the impact of neighbors and friends of other races than to congregational influence, a Baylor University study found. “Solving America’s racial problems may be hoping too much from religious congregations,” said Kevin Dougherty, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology at Baylor and co-author of the study. “The responsibility for moving toward racial integration still rests considerably with the majority group,” Dougherty and Edward C. Polson, Ph.D., assistant professor in Baylor’s Diana R. Garland School of Social Work, analyzed data from the Baylor Religion Survey for the study, published in the journal Sociology of Race and Ethnicity. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, wrote and pitched this story. She covers sociology research and faculty.)
