Kurzlebenslauf

Nach einer Ausbildung zum staatlich anerkannten Heilerziehungspfleger, einschließlich diverser pädagogisch-pflegerischer Praxiserfahrungen im Bereich sozialer Dienstleistungen studierte Herr Leisen Dienstleistungsmanagement (Schwerpunkt: soziale Dienstleistungen) an der Universität Vechta. Ab 2013 folgte ein konsekutives Masterstudium an der Universität Oldenburg im Bereich Wirtschafts- und Rechtswissenschaften (Schwerpunkt: Management und Controlling). Besonders konzentrierte er sich hierbei auf Ausarbeitungen und empirische Forschungsprojekte zu betriebswirtschaftlichen Fragestellungen sozialer Dienstleistungsanbieter, wie u.a. Wirkungscontrolling auf Basis rechtlicher Zielvorgaben in sozialen NPOs, Mitarbeiterorientierte Dienstplanung in der Altenpflege, subjektive Risikobewertung und Zusammenarbeit im klinischen Medikationsprozess,, Kundenorientierung in Wohnformen der Behindertenhilfe - Wohnzufriedenheit, sozialräumliches Teilhabe und Selbstbestimmung aus Nutzersicht oder Balanced Scorecard als Instrument des strategischen Controllings in der Altenpflege.

Seine aktuellen Forschungsschwerpunkte bilden...

  • experimentelle Fundraising- und Volunteering (insb. verhaltensökonomische Interventionsstudien zur Gewinnung und Motivation von Zeitspendern),
  • Alkoholkonsum und Peer Pressure
  • Diskriminierung und Integration von Menschen mit Fluchthintergrund und Arbeitssuchenden,
  • sowie geschlechterbezogene Diskriminierung von Anbietern und Nachfragern in Dienstleistungsmärkten.

In seiner Dissertation beschäftigt sich Herr Leisen mit mehreren empirischen Projekten zum dem Thema "Freiwilligenarbeit im Kontext von Diskriminierung und Integration".

Does It Matter If Prosocial Activities Are Self-Chosen or Advised? – A field experiment on Indirect Reciprocity and Job Related Discrimination in the Rental Housing Market

Projektbeteiligte: Bernd Josef Leisen, Prof. Dr. Vanessa Mertins, Christian Walter
Kurzbeschreibung: Although prosocial activities yield positive returns due to indirect reciprocity in form of public recognition, reputation and appreciation by others, the altruistic motivation behind the engagement may matter more than the actual activity itself. To empirically test if the active decision into a charitable engagement matters for positive indirect reciprocity, we conducted a natural field experiment measuring landlords’ behavior in the German Housing market with two real prosocial alternatives to regular employment, namely engaging in the public volunteering service (PVS) or engaging in a direct employment program (DEP). Although both alternatives contain very similar work settings, PVS is voluntarily and DEP is often advised by the employment agency. By creating four identical fictitious applicants who only differed in their occupation status, in fact job seeking, permanent employed, PVS, DEP and measuring the response behavior of landlords, we are able to empirically investigate employment status discrimination and test for differences if a prosocial engagement was self-chosen or advised.

Analyzing the results, we find clear occupational-driven effects. Applicants with a permanent employment get the most and most promising answer from landlords whereas job seekers the least ones. Compared to job seekers, PVS applicants receive on average 16.89 (p = 0.001) percentage points more responses of landlords whereas applicants doing prosocial activities as part of DEP receive on average 11.18 (p = 0.001) percentage points less responses from landlords. The effects stay statistically and economically the same for the response categories ‘further contact’ and ‘visitation opportunity’. Although both social activities are charitable and contain similar prospects, the results indicate that it matters for landlords’ recognition that the activity is self-chosen instead of advised. Furthermore, we find no significant difference between PVS and permanent employed applicants in visitation opportunities which indicates that unemployed individuals can avoid disadvantages thereof on the housing market by engaging in PVS activities compared to regular occupations. 

In a second wave, we conducted another field experiment at the rental housing market that allows us to compare the response rates of self-chosen and advised selection within each prosocial alternative (PVS, DEP). In line with the first waves’ results we find significant better response outcomes for applicants that mentioned a voluntary participation in PVS respectively DEP compared to their counterparts that participate on advice.

The results do not only show job-related discrimination on the housing market and provide evidence for future labor market policies and anti-discrimination laws, they also show that the prosocial intention matters for indirect positive reciprocity in the field.
