Rotondo Published in Human Resources Management Journal
SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Denise Rotondo, assistant professor of management in the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business at Salisbury State University, recently had the article "Difference in Promotion Stress across Center Stage and Orientation" accepted for publication in a forthcoming issue of Human Resource Management Journal.
"Promotion stress is the experienced feelings of anxiety, concern or tension with one's career reality in terms of the level one has reached in an organizations," wrote Rotondo. "This study considers how promotion stress may differ depending on an individual's internal career orientation (balance, high, free, ahead, secure) as well as an individual's external, professional career stage (apprentice, colleague, mentor, sponsor).
"The results suggest no clear pattern of differences based on internal career orientation," wrote Rotondo. "However, there is a clear pattern with regard to external career stage such that as an individual progresses in his or her professional career, promotion stress decreases. Practical implications for how this can affect human resource management are discussed."
