Abstract

Extant research suggests that organizational form functions as a collective organizational identity and is often defined by certain default expectations held by external audiences. In this study, we adopt Zaltman's metaphor elicitation technique (ZMET) to explore job seekers' hard-to-articulated default expectations for an important yet understudied organizational form in Taiwan - family business. Our findings suggest that Taiwanese job seekers adopt a relational lens in understanding the organizational form of family business. We identify a total of six relational attributes that define and distinguish family from non-family business. Based on those relational attributes, we identify two organizing concepts to explain the organizational forms of family and non-family business in the eyes of the job seekers: relational obligation and relational autonomy. Our findings contribute to the extant literatures by explicating the rich socio-cognitive and ingenious-cultural meanings of family business in contemporary Taiwan labor markets.
