Abstract

Responding to fierce global competition for talent, organisations are increasingly developing and using innovative strategies to attract, hire, and retain employees. One strategy aimed at acquiring top-notch talent has been to consider applicants’ personality traits in the hiring process. One personality trait linked to favourable employee behaviours and attitudes is employee proactivity. Integrating several different literatures, Singapore Management University associate professor of organisational behaviour Gary Greguras, and University of Akron assistant professor of psychology James Diefendorff, developed and tested a model which explicates the processes through which proactivity relates to employee job satisfaction, life satisfaction, performance, and organisational citizenship behaviours.
