Hypotheses 2 and 3 proposed that employees in mixed-gender dyads would receive lower performance ratings than employees in same-gender dyads and that mixed-gender dyads would moderate the effects of LMX on performance ratings. We found that, in comparison to men with male supervisors, only women with male supervisors have a statistically significant difference in ratings and in fact the ratings are higher. As shown in table 3 models 1a and 1b, women with male supervisors received higher ratings on both in-role performance (? = 0.17, t = 3.26, p < .01) and ICB (? = 0.15, t = 3.04, p < .01) than that of men with male supervisors. In addition, the interaction effect of LMX and gender dyad was significant for women with a male supervisor. The coefficients for the interaction of LMX with mixed-gender dyads comprised of a male supervisor and female subordinate on ratings of in-role performance (? = ?0.15, t = ?2.50, p < .05) and ICB (? = ?0.17, t = ?2.59, p < .05) were negative and statistically significant, which suggested that the strength of the relationship between LMX and performance ratings for women with male supervisors was weaker than that for men with male supervisors.
Throughout these patterns, the partnership anywhere between LMX and performance stays high and you will self-confident, and women having men supervisors nevertheless discover higher efficiency ratings than simply boys that have men supervisors
In order to compare the gender dyad groups to other base groups (female supervisors with female subordinates and female supervisors with male subordinates), we also conducted supplemental regression analyses, results of which are shown in Appendix 2. Continue reading
