Abstract  

Calling has emerged as a pertinent construct in psychology and management. Calling originates from religious and is secularized in sociology, and resuscitated in psychology and management. The extant literature on calling showed that calling could lead to positve outcomes such as higher individual’s well-being, higher organizational duty, less team conflict, and so on. In the current paper, the connotation, measurement and work-related outcomes of calling were systematically reviewed. On the basis of review, the article pointed out the three topics (i.e. the structure, outcomes and antecedents) which future researchers should focus on. Meanwhile, the theory-guidance, multiple-level, longitudinal, and indigenous study should be strengthened in the future research.

Keywords career calling      connotation      measurement      organizational behaviors
