Abstract [en]

Little attention has been directed towards the role of gender in the

supervisor–subordinate dyad that is the very fundament of management control. We

argue that gender roles and the roles implied in the supervisor–subordinate relationship

are powerful concepts that need to be incorporated in research to better understand

the reactions and perceptions of management controls. The article contributes to this

line of research by developing and testing hypotheses related to gender differences in

supervisor–subordinate dyads and the resulting perceptions of evaluation fairness and

trust in management under a tight control regime. In a vignette experiment where only

the name of the supervisor was changed to a typical female or male name for female

and male subordinates (respondents)(2×2), we find that female (male) subordinates

demonstrate more negative (positive) attitudes towards evaluation fairness and that

male subordinates with a female supervisor put more trust in management than males

with a male supervisor and females with a female supervisor.
