Abstract [en]

The increasing prevalence of externalized work arrangements in industrialized countries has brought with it ever greater managerial complexityin the workplace. This article explores how leadership behavior is perceived byinternal and external workers within a public authority in Sweden. Questionnaire data from 505 temporary agency workers (TAWs), contractors, andinternal employees have been analyzed. Multinomial logistic regression analysesindicate that external workers such as TAWs and contractors are more likelythan internal employees to notice leadership profiles, including pronounced,task-oriented leadership behavior. These results hold true when controlled fordemographic and socio-economic variables and organizational tenure. A practicalimplication is that explicit attention should be paid to the need forleadership training in developing HRM strategies with regards to externalemployees.
