Journal of Career Development, v43 n2 p130-144 Apr 2016
This study examined how the perception of a linkage between organizational ethical behavior and career success, representing ethical orientation of the organization, influences employees' perceptions of organizational politics and their subsequent career motivation, that is, career commitment, motivation to participate in training, and turnover intentions. The results obtained using data collected from 389 employees in Korea indicate that career commitment fully mediated the relationship between the ethical behavior-career success association and both outcome variables (motivation to participate in training and turnover intentions) as well as the relationship between the perception of organizational politics and motivation to participate in training. However, the relationship between the perception of organizational politics and turnover intentions was only partially mediated by career commitment. These findings suggest that managers cope with employees' careerist orientation by developing a sound perceptual set for career progress.
