Alternative Models For Antecedents And Outcomes Of Work Centrality And Job Satisfaction Of High-Tech Personnel
Published 1997 ·
Alternative causal models were developed, relating Work Centrality and Job Satisfaction to antecedents and outcomes. The antecedents examined were demographics and need for achievement, and the outcomes included performance, wages, organizational commitment, and career planning. The models were tested using data of Israeli high-tech personnel. Results indicated that organizational commitment, career planning, and wages were significantly affected by work centrality, while performance was positively but nonsignificantly related to it. While all models proved to be acceptable, the best model posited Job Satisfaction as an antecedent rather than an outcome of Work Centrality. It also revealed the importance of demographics for outcomes. Implications are discussed.
