The aim of this chapter is to highlight implications of the proposed model and propositions in Chapter 4 and 5 for employee proactivity research. The chapter firstly discusses how attachment theory provides a different angle from alternative approaches to understand relational basis of employee proactivity. Then it elaborates how the attachment theory strengthens a dispositional approach to understand employee proactivity and the value of the proposed model in integrating the different conceptualizations and motivational mechanisms in proactivity research. Finally, the chapter indicates avenues for future research on employee proactivity specifically and elaborates how attachment theory can help us to understand work behavior broadly.

Keywords:   Individual differences in proactivity, proactive behavior, attachment theory, work behavior
