Critical Analysis Why using employee self-report in I-O psychology research is not reliable
Reasons would include:
-Fear of reprisal-Employees are fearful that their employer will find out, and retaliate against them in some way
– Propensity to give “socially desirable” responses rather than their true impressions
-Concerns about relational implications of speaking up
– Faking good, guessing which answer is most desirable for an employer so they get a job (pre-employment)
It should also include a section on how difficult it is for researchers to identify these factors in their research. Including information on research techniques that can help to identify these biases/faking.
