摘要:  作为一种有效的激励方式, 目标设置被广泛地运用于各类组织中。然而, 近年来一系列的研究发现, 目标设置也会引发员工的非伦理行为。全面梳理了国外对于目标设置影响非伦理行为的相关研究, 系统地介绍了两者的直接关系、边界条件及理论基础, 在总结这些研究的基础上, 提出未来研究应从拓展研究方法(基于真实组织情景下的调查)和研究内容(强化调节、中介及社会性视角下的研究)两方面展开。

关键词:  目标设置, 非伦理行为, 目标屏蔽理论, 道德推脱理论, 自我损耗理论

Abstract:  As an effective motivation tool, goal setting has been widely used in various types of organizations. However, while recent research has revealed that goal setting might lead to unethical behavior, research efforts in reviewing their relationships are still rare. Therefore, the present research aims to comprehensively review previous research on the impact of goal setting on unethical behavior. Specifically, we reviewed their direct relationships, boundary conditions, and also theoretical bases. Based on this review, we suggest that future research should be conducted in real organizations and pay more attention to their mediators, moderators and the social perspective of goal setting.

Key words:  goal setting, unethical behavior, goal shielding theory, moral disengagement theory, ego depletion theory
