The present study empirically investigates the link between network properties and job performance using a sample of 121 middle managers from Beijing, China. The primary objective is to examine how characteristics of the person and the job moderate the effects of networks on self-rated performance. This study contributes to the network literature by investigating both the impact of network characteristics in terms of information accessibility and diversity on job performance and the interaction effects of gender, managerial rank, and functional areas of the ego with the network characteristics.
