Past research has focused on the differential relationships of organizational and work group identification with attitudes and behavior. However, no systematic effort has been undertaken yet to explore interactive effects "between" these foci of identification. We predicted that in cases of positive overlap of identifications (i.e. high work group "and" organizational identification) identifications are more strongly associated with employee job satisfaction and extra-role behavior than when only one of the identifications is high--that is, the one identification augments the influence of the other. These hypotheses were tested and supported with data from two samples of bank employees (N=358) and travel agency employees (N=308).
