Negotiating costs and benefits among 2008 Olympic volunteers : a social exchange perspective / Yan Wang, Inge Derom, Marc Theeboom

Wang, Yan | Derom, Inge | Theeboom, Marc

Significant financial investments in organizing sport mega-events (SME) and training SME volunteers are frequently justified on the basis that local organizations can benefit from a larger pool of experienced volunteers following the event. By employing social exchange theory as a theoretical framework, this study explores the connection between the SME volunteer experience and subsequent volunteer behavior as a potential return on investment. In-depth interviews have been conducted with 15 Chinese volunteers who participated in the 2008 Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games.
