Service employee behaviour : the role of compliance and risk taking
Lings, Ian & Siegfried, Gudergan (2010) Service employee behaviour : the role of compliance and risk taking. International Journal of Services Technology and Management, 14(2/3), pp. 208-216.
This paper looks at the decision-making process that determines the amount of effort frontline service employees will expend in delivering a service in a business-to-business context. Using theories in behavioural economics and interactional and social psychology, the paper develops and presents a model of employee decision-making. Managerial implications, which have the potential to enhance the marketing of business-to-business services and directions for future research in this area, are indicated.
