Background information: Research Question, Hypothesis & Model: Research question: Which Focus of Commitment Is Stronger At Various Levels of the Company Hierarchy?
The aim of this research was to investigate the relationship between perceived support, commitment and turnover intention. I am interested in analyzing these phenomena at two different levels: Organizational level (Supervisors support; Organizational commitment) and Team level
(Team Support; Team Commitment).
Moreover, I would answer the question whether these three phenomena are related at both level of analyses. In addition, I will look into a potential mechanism through which perceived support influences turnover intention; investigating the role of organizational commitment in this relationship. Finally, attempt to specify factors, under which these mechanisms operate, I will investigate the moderating role of the hierarchical position.
Research Hypothesis Below:
H1 Perceived support is positively related to commitment at both, organizational and team level.
H1a Perceived supervisor support is positively related to organizational commitment.
H1b Perceived team support is positively related to team commitment.
H2 Perceived support is negatively related to turnover intentions at both, organizational and team level.
H2a Perceived supervisor support is negatively related to turnover intentions
H2b Perceived team support is negatively related to turnover intentions
H3 Perceived support influences turnover intentions through commitment, at both organizational and team level.
H3a Perceived supervisor support leads to lower turnover intentions through increased organizational commitment.
H3b Perceived team support leads to lower turnover intentions through increased team commitment.
H4 Hierarchical position moderates the relationship between perceived support, commitment and turnover intentions at both, organizational and team level.
H4a The level of an employee in a company?s leadership hierarchy influences the relationship between perceived supervisor support, organizational commitment and turnover intentions.
H4b; The level of an employee in a company?s leadership hierarchy influences the relationship between perceived team support, team commitment and turnover intentions
