Description
Summary:Based on the Social Identity Theory and on Self Categorization Theory, we analyze the influence of external variables (career opportunities, pre-merger identification, work climate and fairness) on identification, attitudes (job motivation and job satisfaction), intentions (turnover intentions) and behaviors (organizational citizenship behavior) in two different types of merged institutions. The samples consisted of 207 employees from two Colombian governmental organizations and of 319 employees from two German medical institutions. We create and test a model, which is based on empirically supported assumptions, is statistically valid, and can be applied in both contexts.
