THE DEVELOPMENT OF NORMATIVE COMMITMENT THROUGH TEAM PROCESSES: IMPLICATIONS FOR FOCI OF COMMITMENT AND TURNOVER
Abstract (Summary)Steve M. Jex, Advisor This study investigated whether global and local normative commitment predicted turnover intention over and above global commitment and whether normative commitment developed through team processes. Results indicated that global and local commitment did not predict turnover intention above and beyond global commitment by itself. Results further indicated that social interaction did not moderate the relationship between either of the commitments and turnover intention. Results also indicated that team cohesion and team friendship did not mediate the relationship between either of the commitments and turnover intention. Lastly, team size was found to negatively correlate with both forms of commitment. Implications for foci of commitment research and normative commitment antecedent research are discussed.
