Paper accepted at Management Accounting Research

Our paper “Performance management and work engagement - New evidence using longitudinal data” co-authored by Stefanie Ehmann, Patrick Kampkötter, Patrick Maier, and Philip Yang has been accepted for publication at Management Accounting Research, one of the top field journals in management accounting (JOURQUAL3: A).

In this paper, we investigate the impact of three important performance management and evaluation practices on employee-level work engagement, namely performance appraisal interviews, formal target agreements, and performance-related pay schemes. The main take-away of our study is that the usefulness of performance management practices as a tool to increase work engagement applies to firms of different sizes, industries, and ownership patterns.
