Information exchanged in role negotiations is likely to fall under evaluative work and descriptive
work categories in Hudson & Jablin’s (1992) Information-Giving Message Categorization Scheme:
“Evaluative work information includes utterances expression opinions or judgments related to
discrepancies between expectations and experiences (overt surprises), job stress, self-evaluation of
performance, qualities and attributes of the work role, and evaluations of individuals affiliated with
the organization and the organization itself....Descriptive work information includes nonevaluative
utterances related to such matters as task understanding, causes for task performance, task goals,
and task instructions” (Jablin, 2001, p.774).

Researchers distributed the surveys via mail to two organizations (response rates: local Women’s
Association 15%; local surveying company, 13%), personal presentation to departments in one
organization (response rate: local hospital administrative staff, 63%), and supervisors in five
organizations (response rates: copying firm, 50%; cellular phone branch, 100%; local apartment
office, 100%; Chamber of Commerce office, 53%).

Tests for differences between participants reporting role negotiation details versus those not
reporting such information on the distribution of their sex, their supervisor’s sex, length of
employment, length of reporting to their current supervisor, and their organizational status were non
significant. Non-role negotiation reporting participants were half male (50%) and female (50%),
with more male supervisors (66%) than female (44%), being employed by their organization for 2
to 384 months (M=102, Mdn=54) and reporting to their current supervisor for 1 to 168 months
(M=30, Mdn=17).
