Research Design and Statistical Issues in Tests of Mediation ModelsRecent developments and controversies surrounding research aimed at testing assumed mediation models are considered. Presentations focus on (a) experimental design (i.e., experimental, quasi-experimental, and nonexperimental) and data analytic strategies (e.g., multiple regression and structural equation modeling) for such tests, and (b)recommendations for future tests of assumed mediation models.

Work Conditions That Maximize the Performance of Engaged EmployeesEmployee engagement is widely recognized as a factor contributing to improved performance. However, without enabling conditions, engagement may not sustain performance, and negative consequences for employees and organizations� bottom lines may follow. Panelists will discuss engagement and the necessary supportive conditions to translate discretionary effort into enhanced productivity.

Balancing Globalization With Localization: Successfully Implementing Global Talent Management ProgramsThis symposium will discuss how organizations have successfully integrated global talent management programs in the areas of selection, leadership development, and engagement surveys. Two international Fortune 500 companies and 3 external consulting firms will review the development, change management, implementation, and ongoing trends of global human resources programs.

Amber Schroeder, Clemson University
More Than a Violated Assumption: A Theoretical Review of HeteroscedasticityHeteroscedasticity refers to a violated statistical assumption. We argue that, in some instances, it could be of substantive theoretical importance. We offer examples where heteroscedasticity may be implicit yet integral to some theories germane to I-O psychology. We conclude with a set of recommended procedures for researchers and practitioners.
Presenters:
Mark Zajack, Clemson University
Tournament Tenure: Applying March Madness Methodology to Organizational TenureNonnormally distributed criterion variables are found within both sports and organizational contexts. A recommended methodology for study of organizational variables (e.g., tenure) is illustrated via prediction of college basketball team performance in the NCAA tournament. A methodology based on Poisson regression compares favorably to the validity of OLS regression techniques.

The 4/5ths Is Just a Fraction: Alternative Adverse Impact MethodologiesI-O psychologists commonly equate adverse impact (AI) with the 4/5ths rule. However, this metric is overly simplistic and oft-disregarded in legal environments, suggesting the criticality of investigating alternative approaches to detect and mitigate AI. Presenters describe innovative methods for calculating and interpreting AI in complex, large-N, and multisample contexts.

Commitment as a Mediator Between Morale Age and Withdrawal IntentionsThe �graying� of the workforce has significantly affected the registered nurse (RN) workforce. In a longitudinal study, we examined the interplay among morale age (i.e., attitudes about aging), commitment, and withdrawal intentions in a sample of RNs. Commitment mediated the relationship between morale age and retirement and occupational turnover intentions.

A Quasi-Experimental Study of Expressive Writing and Nurses' Job AttitudesWe conducted a quasi-experimental study comparing nurses who did (N = 101) and did not (N = 261) participate in a 12 week study of nurses� positive and negative work experiences. Participants reported changes in occupational commitment but not work engagement. We discuss the implications for future stress-management intervention design.

Predictors of Treatment Seeking Among Reserve Component Combat VeteransThis study examined attitudes towards treatment seeking for psychological problems among Reserve Component combat veterans. Stigma and barriers to care predicted overall attitude toward receiving treatment. Veterans receiving treatment had more positive attitudes towards seeking treatment and had fewer maladaptive beliefs about psychological problems than their non-treatment-seeking counterparts.

Engaging Students in Applied Work: Lessons From University-Based Consulting centersUniversity-based consulting centers provide a wide range of benefits to students, the departments affiliated with the center, and organizations that make use of their services. The purpose of this panel discussion is to provide diverse information about these centers. Topics to be discussed range from business concerns to lessons learned.

Pasteur's Quadrant: The Place of Collaborative Research in I-O PsychologyI-O psychology research combines applied and basic research. Collaborative research between scientists and practitioners provides unique insights not found without communication between these groups. The panel discusses how academic research is informed by work in the field and how organizations benefit from the knowledge generated in �ivory towers.�

Reading Between the Lines: Reactions to Gendered Managerial CommunicationsRole congruity theory facilitated predictions regarding how masculine and feminine communications delivered by male and female managers impacted competence ratings. As predicted, ratings of sex-congruent managerial traits were higher when managers communicated in a sex-role consistent manner. For women, feminine communications resulted in the highest ratings of managerial effectiveness.
