Strategic Human Resource Management typically raises appraisal issues (Analoui, 2007; Jackson, Schuler & Werner, 2009 ; Teo & Crawford, 2005) mostly related to the HRM relationship with organizational performance (Bowen & Ostroff, 2004 ; Cascio, 1996 ; Wright, Gardner, Moynihan & Allen, 2005). Hence workforce assessment remains a key success factor for many organizations. Thus this paper takes place in the early beginning of a PhD Thesis which aims to the development and validation of an assessment test of Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) and Contextual Performance (CP) in a professional selection context. The managerial concept of OCB refers to “individual behavior that is discretionary, not directly or explicitly recognized by the formal reward system, and in the aggregate promotes the efficient and effective functioning of the organization” (Organ, Podsakoff & MacKenzie, 2006, p. 3). CP is a closely related construct, distinct of task performance, that encompasses behaviors supporting the psychological and social context in which task activities are performed (Stone-Romero, Alvarez, & Thompson, 2009). If these two frameworks look much alike, they contrast on several points: conceptual dimensions, discretional characteristics of behavior, etc. Therefore, it seems interesting to apprehend both commonly. Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) show a good validity concerning prediction of job performance in employment settings (Lievens, Peeters, Schollaert, 2008 ; Whetzel & McDaniel, 2009). Furthermore, they are a multidimentional measurement method suited to assess different construct like job knowlege and skills, applied social skills, and some basic personality tendencies (Christian, Edwards, & Bradley, 2010). Taking into account its characteristics, SJTs seem to be an appropriate method to enable OCB & CP evaluation. This communication pursues three goals. The first is a theoretical issue: we need a straightforward vision of OCB & CP concepts. Accordingly, after a consistent review on the vast amount of work that have been written on these two concepts, we have to specify what we seek to appraise and make the inventory of existing measurement tools related to these focus. We have already worked out a structured methodology to develop and validate SJTs in selection and career management context (Lothe, Hansez & Bertrand, Submitted). So the second issue is a methodological one. How to improve and/or to adapt this methodology in order to create a new SJT measuring OCB & CP ? Thirdly, some research related issues conclude this paper. Through this PhD project, we should be able to examine several main issues that will shape the thesis. Are SJTs being able to provide a valid assessment of OCB & CP in a personnel selection context ? Does the discretionary nature of one behavior impact the quality of its measurement ? What is the effect of response instructions on OCB/CP situational judgment test performance ? Each issue will be illustrated and discussed in connection with the development and validation opportunities and constraints. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 54 (10 ULg)

The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of burnout among Belgian workers through the identification of burnout cases within the practices of general practitioners (GP) and the health surveillance carried out by occupational health physicians (OP) .The prevalence may be estimated at about 0,8 % of the Belgian population; this figure is similar among workers consulting GP and OP.

Background: Nowadays Human Resource Management issues are highly related to the strategic approach (Analoui, 2007; Daft, 2008; Becker, Huselid & Beatty, 2009 ; Jackson, Schuler & Werner, 2009). Workforce is considered as an asset and HRM is required to match human capital with organization strategic purposes. HRM practices have accordingly evolved to better fulfil this requirement through for instance Competency Modelling (CM) (Werbel & De Marie, 2005). Diagnosis: This communication illustrates a specific CM validation process in a wide Public Administration. Through a “one-size-fits-all” competency model approach (Mansfield, 1996), the HRM department of this Public Administration has developed a set of 29 transverse competencies broken down across 290 behavioural indicators. After several in-house pre-validation steps (workshops and test cases), Human Resources Development Unit of University of Liege was invited to collaborate to the final validation process. Solution: Based on Van Beirendonck (2006) CM validation criteria, a two steps validation method was jointly developed. Four main criteria were used, therefore each behavioural indicator ought to : (1) meet various organizational departments needs; (2) be clearly understood within the organization (Bowen & Ostroff, 2004); (3) have a straight link with its belonging competency and (4) be observable. A questionnaire survey (n=252) was drawn up to appraise the first three criteria and quantitative analysis results provided the CM improvement framework. The concluding validation stage assessed the three last criteria by measuring Subject Matter Experts (HR managers responsible for staff evaluation) interrater agreement in order to improve CM content validity (Sanchez & Levine, 2009). Finding: Results comfortably confirm CM content validation under the four criteria. One of the project’s more relevant elements is developing a scientifically based method adapted to wide administration organizational features and constraints. In contrast, this CM validation project presents some limitations in relation to the CM theoretical concept (ambiguous concept in its validation perspective) and to organizational constraints (lack of strategic project concerning the use of the CM). Method and outcomes will be discussed in connection with the customer’s requirements and the constraints from the organizational context. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 104 (3 ULg)

Face à la problématique du vieillissement au travail, ainsi qu’aux conséquences sociales et économiques auxquelles elle est associée, la nécessité de mettre en place une gestion des âges au sein des entreprises est de plus en plus souvent mise en exergue. Cette gestion des âges, qui se veut intégrée, implique cependant une remise en question profonde des valeurs, des normes et de la culture d’entreprise. Associer le facteur « âge » aux politiques et pratiques de ressources humaines doit nécessairement s’accompagner d’un changement des mentalités et d’une meilleure intégration des générations au travail. C’est dans cette optique qu’une recherche sur la gestion des âges dans les entreprises belges a été commanditée, en 2010, par le Service Public Fédéral Emploi, Travail et Concertation sociale. Cette recherche a contribué au développement d’un guide de sensibilisation dont l’objectif était de constituer une aide à l’implémentation d’une gestion des âges efficace en entreprise.
