Differences in the Observed Frequency Distributions of Male and Female Feedback Behaviors
Management & Entrepreneurship
The present study examined whether or not gender and training significantly influence feedback-receiving and feedback-giving behaviors between men and women at work. Gender was not found to be an important factor influencing whether an employee receives or gives feedback; people give and receive feedback in similar patterns when controlling for gender. For a person receiving feedback, training did not impact feedback-receiving or feedback-giving behaviors. However, if an employee experienced feedback training, the training was an important determinant of the amount of feedback he or she would give. Training influenced an individual's proclivity to give feedback to others, even when gender was held constant.
