Soonhee Kim, associate professor of public administration, co-authored a new article published in the American Review of Public Administration. The article, entitled “Exploring the Role of Social Networks in Affective Organizational Commitment: Network Centrality, Strength of Ties, and Structural Holes,” explores the social network configurations that lead to affective organizational commitment. This study found nonlinear relationships between several network dimensions (i.e., network centrality, tie strength, and structural holes) and employees’ affective commitment. These relationships are empirically tested by using both social network data and employee survey data from local governments. For more information on the article see
