Jörg Schäfer investigates the influence of family firm specific decision rationales based on socioemotional wealth on vertical and horizontal pay ranges in family firms. Building on a primary data set of over 200 family firms in Germany and applying multiple regression analysis techniques, as well as, the firm conceptual foundation in family firm and compensation theory, the presented study provides answers regarding antecedents of pay variation, and the factors that drive different family firms to pursue and implement specific pay structures and pay variations. Furthermore, the dissertation contributes to the current research discussions, by partially validating the FIBER scale, proving the heterogeneity of family firms and adding robustness to methodology and range measures in the compensation context. Dr. Jörg Schäfer wrote his dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andreas Hack at the Witten Institute for Family Business (WIFU) at Witten/Herdecke University.
Succession in Asian Family Firms examines the history and survival of family businesses in the South Asian Diaspora from an international perspective. The book presents unique research across three continents, focusing on significant communities in the UK, USA and Kenya. The book analyzes the influences on both the start up and survival of family firms, exploring how family members negotiate their working practices. The discussion provides a new perspective on issues central to the debate on family business succession whilst developing ideas on less familiar areas such as the role and influence of women through different cultural contexts.
Christoph Rose provides a broader differentiation of the perspective on family-owned companies. In contrast to several studies that merely discuss family-owned companies and non-family companies, his analysis is based on family influence, so the dominating heterogeneity of family-owned companies in practice is taken into account. The author provides an empirical database that substantiates his statements and that is the first attempt to make the conceptional FIBER model of socio-emotional wealth suggested in literature accessible to empirical analysis. Dr. Christoph Rose wrote his dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Andreas Hack at the Institute of Family Business at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management, Vallendar.
