|Title:||Work context and the definition of self: How organizational care influences organization-based self-esteem||Authors:||McAllister, D.J.
|Issue Date:||2002||Citation:||McAllister, D.J.,Bigley, G.A. (2002). Work context and the definition of self: How organizational care influences organization-based self-esteem. Academy of Management Journal 45 (5) : 894-904. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We investigated how work context leads to employee self-definition. We propose that the employees of organizations whose values and organizing principles center on fulfilling employees' needs and acting in their best interests will report higher levels of organization-based self-esteem. Further, we argue that perceptions of organizational fairness and job authority mediate this relationship through the social-psychological process of reflected appraisal. Results based on analyses of data from a sample of 186 managers and professionals from 69 different organizational settings support our model.||Source Title:||Academy of Management Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/44624||ISSN:||00014273|
