Individual training and employees’ cooperative behavior: evidence from a contextualized laboratory experiment.

Nikki Van Gerwen
Employers are constantly seeking to improve employee performance by means of investing in employee training. The results of training are to a large extent dependent on employees’ willingness to behave productively in a cooperative manner. Yet, systematic evidence investigating the causal relation between training and employees’ cooperative behavior is rare. Here we present results from a contextualized laboratory experiment in which subjects, who differ in terms of training participation, were asked to contribute resources to...

Network entrepreneurial personality, network constraint and social learning: An experimental test of Burt’s theory

Charlotte Rutten
These data where gathered to study causal assumptions of Burt’s social network theory. The first assumption that was studied is the assumption that actors with stronger network entrepreneurial personalities more actively pursue a strategic network position of low constraint compared to actors with weaker network entrepreneurial personalities. The second assumption that was studied is whether being in a lower network constraint position leads to more success in advantageous decision making via social learning. What is...

Corporate network data - Portugal

Álvaro Ferreira Da Silva & Pedro Neves
This dataset covers the composition of the boards of the 125 largest Portuegese firms (by assets) in several benchmark years. These years reflect the different contexts faced by business firms over roughly a hundred years— 1913 to 2010. The first year— 1913— comes at the end of the ‘long nineteenth century’, which was characterized by institutional transformation, but slow economic growth and weak industrialization. The second benchmark year— 1925— marks the end of the buoyant...

Corporate network data - France

Pierre Francois & Claire Lemercier
According to the general principles defined by Thomas David and Gerharda Westerhuis in order to insure comparability between countries, we have selected the ca. 50 biggest French financial and the ca. 200 biggest French non-financial firms for each benchmark date. Due to constraints in our sources, we however departed from studies on other countries by always choosing share capital as our sampling criterion. Other minor peculiarities of our sampling scheme can be found in the...

Quality of Life

Tanja Van Der Lippe
QUALITY is an innovative quantitative and qualitative research project that has examined how, in an era of major change, European citizens and workers living in different national welfare state regimes and subject to different public and organisational trends and policies evaluate the quality of their lives. The project analyses international-comparative data on the social well-being of citizens and collects new data on social quality in European workplaces in the selected partner countries: UK, Finland, Sweden,...

Corporate network data - Italy

Alberto Rinaldi & Michelangelo Vasta

The Imita.db database is an electronic version of this source. This dataset contains information on companies, boards of directors, and balance sheets of a large sample of Italian joint-stock companies for several benchmark years. On the whole, the dataset contains...

An Experiment on the Effects of Embeddedness in Trust Situations

Vincent Buskens
This vignette experiment was designed to study the effects of temporal embeddedness and network embeddedness in trust situations. The experiment uses a setting in which a buyer wants to buy a used car from a car dealer. We distinguish between effects on trust of the past relation and the effects of the expected future relation between the buyer and the dealer. A buyer can learn about the trustworthiness of the dealer from past transactions of...

Time Competition - pseudonymized

Tanja Van Der Lippe
The research program aims to test a new explanations for the growing tension between the competing time claims from the spheres of paid work and the household. This new explanation starts out from the changing governance structures in contemporary, flexible firms. In a second step, the governance structures of households are added to the explanation, because they codetermine the ways in which rival time-claims are accomodated. The fieldwork has been done by Survey Data, Netherlands....

Friction and compaction data of simulated fault gouges derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock of the Groningen gas field

Luuk Bernd Hunfeld
We investigated the rate-and-state frictional properties of simulated anhydrite-carbonate fault gouge derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock overlying the seismogenic Groningen gas reservoir in the NE Netherlands. Direct shear experiments were performed at in-situ conditions of 50-150 °C and 40 MPa effective normal stress, using sliding velocities of 0.1-10 µm/s. Reservoir pore fluid compositions were simulated using 4.4 Molar NaCl brine, as well as methane, air and brine/gas mixtures. Brine-saturated samples showed friction coefficients (µ)...

Mechanical data from rotary shear experiments on material derived from outcrops felsic and mafic rocks in the East African Rift Zone

Nina Hellebrekers
In all experiments, multiple series of velocity-steps were performed to obtain the velocity dependence of friction. The data can be modeled using rate-and-state friction equations (see Marone, 1998). We used the rate-and-state friction tool included in the XLOOK program to invert the data for all RSF parameters. For more details on the inversions scheme, see e.g. Reinen and Weeks, 1993. The excel-files included give the best fit values for the different parameters and different velocity...
