Managerial Perceptions of Employee Commitment to the Organization
A model incorporating antecedents and outcomes of measures of manager-rated employee affective and continuance commitment was tested with 231 managers and 339 subordinates. Organizational citizenship behavior predicted manager-rated affective commitment, where-as side bets (age, tenure, and education) predicted manager-rated continuance commitment. Further, affective commitment was positively and continuance commitment negatively related to a variety of outcomes, including managerial potential and promotability. Implications are discussed.
