Are Some Employees More Popular Than Others?

Research in the latest issue of the Journal of Applied Psychology shows that workers evaluate their colleagues in terms of popularity. According to The Wall Street Journal, those who are considered popular are treated more favorably by their colleagues, and the study suggests that these workers aren't necessarily favored because of job merit. The researchers conveyed their opinion of the findings and wrote, "By valuing popularity, organizations may be promoting a certain ‘clubby’ atmosphere that mimics school culture."

Does your workplace possess this kind of dynamic, where some employees are noticeably more popular than others?
