Agnes Akkerman received the grant for her project A dissatisfied employee, a dissatisfied citizen?
Assertive employees are sometimes punished with poorer career chances or bullying by employers and colleagues. This research will reveal how and why the expression of dissatisfaction by employees is suppressed and what consequences this has for the behaviour of employees, within and outside of the organisation, such as their voting behaviour.
