Abstract

The available study examines the question on basis of a expectation-theoretical reference framework, as the characteristics of business projects of established companies motivate their coworker to participate in these projects. The influence of the noticed probability of success, job risk, is analyzed remuneration risk, to expecting employment as well as required profit sharing regarding the participation decision of the coworkers. Besides it is examined whether the noticed probability of success has a moderating influence on other factors of influence. A Conjoint study of technology companies established by 1472 participation decisions of 46 coworkers supported far parts of the postulated model. Implications for the scientific literature and management practice are discussed.
