Abstract

Employees’ job satisfaction may increase after a promotion, but the effect will eventually disappear when they start comparing themselves to other leaders in the organisation — not to their former peers anymore. Hannah Dekker, Siegmar Otto, Vincent Dekker, David Richter, and Sarah Zabel write that a promotion’s positive effect usually does not last more than a year. To maintain a committed workforce in the long run, the authors suggest further human resource practices such as employee empowerment and participation in decision-making processes.
