Many employees are concurrently involved in more than one team at the same time. Although there are good theoretical reasons to believe that such multiple team memberships potentially come with both benefits and disadvantages for individual employees, prior research has largely ignored this type of work arrangement. This dissertation examines if, how, and when multiple team membership relates to an employee’s overall performance, psychological well-being, and the quality of his or her interpersonal relationships at work. By doing so, it contributes to an integrative understanding of the positive and negative consequences of individual employees’ multiple team membership.
