1. Guo, Yongxing. A Relational Perspective on Work (dis)Engagement in China: The Impact of Identification, Guanxi and Justice.

Degree: Management, 2016, University of New South Wales

Extant research on work engagement has exclusively focused on job resources based on work design theory resulting in a neglect of relational factors. However, recent developments in work design theory have seen more attention given to relational factors. This thesis continues in this stream focusing on the relationship between employees and their organisations and the relationship between co-workers. Three empirical studies were conducted to test the influence of relational factors. Specifically, study one examines the role of organisational identification in facilitating work engagement and in turn, two outcomes: job performance and organisational citizenship behaviour (OCBO). Further, indirect effects of identification on job performance and OCBO through work engagement were proposed as being contingent on perceptions of organisational politics. The proposed relationships were generally supported by the empirical results. When organisational politics become highly intense, they distract employees from their tasks so their performance is adversely affected. Study two investigates the impact of guanxi – in this case non-work personal relationships between employees on work engagement, personal initiative and turnover intentions. In this study I propose that the impact of co-worker guanxi will be stronger for employees with an intrinsic work value orientation. Further, the indirect effects of co-worker guanxi on personal initiative and turnover intentions will also depend on an intrinsic work value orientation. The proposed relationships were supported by the empirical results.Study three concerns the impact of organisational justice on employee disengagement and job performance. Drawing on conservation of resources theory, I hypothesise that manual workers who are treated inequitably by their supervisors are more likely to disengage from their jobs and, in turn, demonstrate low performance. I also propose that negative behaviours by co-workers will amplify the impact of injustice on disengagement and performance. The empirical results indicate that workers who perceive inequitable rewards and disrespectful treatment from their supervisors are more likely to disengage from their jobs. Explanations are provided including interpretations of some unexpected results. Overall, this thesis found that both employee-organisation and co-worker relationships play an important role in the development of work engagement and key work outcomes.

2. Liu, Jinjing. Determinants of Crowdfunding Success: A Trust-based Perspective.

Degree: Management, 2017, University of New South Wales

Success in crowdfunding has hitherto been narrowly defined in terms of funds raised, and mechanisms leading to success have been inadequately identified. By adopting a trust-based perspective, this thesis develops a theoretical model that examines perceived benevolence trust as a potential antecedent of three aspects of crowdfunding success: amount of funds, number of funders and number of feedback. This model is tested via a quantitative study and mechanisms leading to success are elaborated in a qualitative study. Drawing on a dataset of 469 projects from the largest crowdfunding platform in China, the results indicate that perceived benevolence trust positively influences the levels of success in crowdfunding. Moreover, through interviews conducted across a variety of crowdfunding platforms in China, this thesis investigates the role of crowdfunding platforms in influencing crowdfunding success for entrepreneurs. This thesis contributes to the entrepreneurial finance literature by clarifying the scope of success in crowdfunding for entrepreneurs. Furthermore, it contributes to the trust literature by examining the influence of perceived benevolence trust on crowdfunding success. Finally, it contributes to the crowdfunding literature by exploring managerial factors that influence different success rates across crowdfunding platforms, and provides an understanding of China as an emerging crowdfunding market.
