“CEO Mindset and Firm Coopetition Behaviors: The Moderating Roles of Institutional and Market Environments”
Wei Zheng, Weiguo Zhong, Jiangyong
Lu Peking University

Image: Winner

We are really honored to be awarded the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund and sincerely to express our gratitude towards Emerald Group Publishing, IACMR and the esteemed judging panel for awarding us as the winner. Coopetition has become a growing phenomenon that has recently attracted the interest of researchers and practitioners, specifically under the trend of “Share Economy” in China. Our research contributes to fill the gap of investigation about coopetition under the specific context of China. From the micro-level perspective, factors of the leaders’ mindsets are incorporated together with strategic considerations for understanding coopetition and effect on firm’s performance outcomes, taking into consideration the dynamic nature of the institutional and market environments simultaneously. The generous funding from the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund is a great encouragement for us to complete our research project and lays the financial foundation for further work. Last but not least, we are very grateful for the great support from our university and colleagues.

We are highly honored to be awarded the 2015 Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Emerald Group Publishing, IACMR, and the selection committee whose decision to award us with the research fund has made the advancement of our enquiry into political embeddedness of Chinese firms possible. Our study aims to propose a novel approach in examining firms’ political ties, which is a research stream that has seen voluminous research efforts but puzzling results. By distinguishing formal and informal political ties on a variety of theoretical dimensions, as well as empirically exploring the comparative effects of these two types of ties on various firm outcomes in China, we seek to deepen our understanding of the nature and role of political ties, and reconcile previous conflicting findings. We are extremely grateful to the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund and Guanghua School of Management for funding and supporting us in our efforts to initiate a constructive dialogue on political connections in China.

“The performance implications of star employee: Individual and team level research”
Yahua Cai, Ho Kwong, Kwan, Erica Xu
Shanghai University of Finance & Economics

iMAGE: Highly Commended winner

It is our great honor that our proposal was nominated as Highly Commended proposal and we received the 2015 Emerald/IACMR International Advanced Chinese Management Research Fund Award. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Emerald Group Publishing, IACMR, and the selection committee. Our aim of this project is to explain star employees' performance implications at both individual and team levels. Star performers are usually conferred to high status and power, and firms tend to invest core resources and attention to star performers with the aspiration that stars will positively affect firm's performance, not only directly through their individual contributions, but also indirectly by providing knowledge spillover s that improve their colleagues' productivity. However, empirical findings lend no consistent support for this hypothesis. Our research plans to explore the core psychological mechanisms through which the presence of star employees will influence coworkers' and team's performance. In addition, using context-sensitive approach, our research will explore both context-specific and context-free contingencies which influence coworker's reactions to the star employees. Finally, we are also indebted to the great support from the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

"Not All Identification Are Created Equal"
Weiguo Zhong, Lucy Sojung Lee
Peking University

Image: Weiguo Zhong Image: Lucy Sojung Lee We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Emerald Group Publishing, IACMR, and the selection committee whose decision to award us with the 2014 Emerald/IACMR research fund has made the advancement of our enquiry into social responsibility within Chinese firms possible. Our aim is to examine ethical issues from an interorganisational identification perspective with the belief that problems such as food safety, environmental protection, and distribution equality have detracted international attention from the overwhelming positivity of China's rapidly growing society. We hope that our research will highlight the prevalence of Machiavellian attitudes in interorganizational exchange, and provide workable solutions with which to address the collectively amoral behaviours of firms. We are extremely grateful to the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund and Guanghua School of Management for funding and supporting us in our endeavor to initiate a constructive ethical dialogue in Chinese business.

"CSR, Consumer-corporate Identification, and Consumer Responses"
Xinming Deng, Tianding Zhang, Yang Xu , Deng Zhu
Wuhan Universtiy
Jianfeng Li
Hubei University

Image: Xinming Deng It is really a big surprise for our team that we can get the award and thanks for your esteemed judging panel choosing our paper as a Highly Commended Award winner of the 2014 Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund Award. So far, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) becomes more and more important, many firms have participated in the campaigns to fulfill social responsibilities, but the outcomes are of great difference. In fact, the relationship between CSR and consumer responses is not a simple logic of "Good is rewarded and evil is punished". There is a complex mechanism which has not been deeply discussed in this relationship. So we hope our research can fill this gap and to explore how CSR affects consumers and what are the factors playing a moderating role in this process. We definitely believe that, with the generous funding contributions from the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund, our research goal would be achieved very well. Lastly, we also want to say thanks to the administrative and research support from Wuhan University.

"What will Creative Employees Do Exploring When and How Creativity Leads More Counterproductive Work Behavior"

Image: Xiaoming Zheng Image: Xin Liu Image: Xin Qin We are highly honored to be awarded the 2014 Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Emerald Group Publishing, IACMR and the esteemed judging panel for choosing us as a Highly Commended Award winner. It is really encouraging for us to complete our research project and finish high-quality research papers. In today's particularly competing markets, managers in China are dedicated to encourage employee creativity in organizations. However, there is a core question that has not been addressed yet – Is creativity always beneficial for organizations? Or does creativity have hidden costs for organizations? We hope our research can deepen the understanding of employee creativity, and thus provide critical practical implications for organizations. The generous funding contributions from the Emerald/IACMR Chinese Management Research Fund will be particularly helpful when we pursue our research objectives. Finally, we are also grateful for the great support from our universities, colleagues, and families.
