Topic: Managing Customer Engagement Behaviours  

While the consumer engagement (CE) concept is well-documented, little remains known about the customer engagement behaviours (CEB) and its nomological network. Managing CEB is a strategic priority for firms and has the potential to sustain long-term customer-firm relationships. This research examines the different types of customer engagement behaviour (i.e. augmenting CEB, co-developing CEB, influencing CEB and mobilizing CEB). The study also examines the relationship between service fairness, different forms of trust (cognitive and affective), value-in-use (ViU) and CEB. The research model was tested across two developed (USA and Australia) and two developing economies (India and China). Results suggest that CEB is a higher-order construct and its structure is consistent across the developed and developing markets. In terms of cross-cultural differences, service fairness has a stronger influence on affective trust in the developing economies as compared to developed economies.

A work in progress will also be presented briefly which examines how consumers with differing personality traits (Big Five personality traits) engages with service firms. Findings have managerial and theoretical contributions.
