Psychological Approaches to Values in Organizations and Organizational Behavior Management
Herbst, Scott A.; Houmanfar, Ramona
Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, v29 n1 p47-68 2009
Researchers studying individual and organizational value congruence are concerned with the degree to which the values of the employee and the organization for which he or she works agree and the affective outcomes that more or less agreement might predict. While a robust area of research, the applications following from it are somewhat limited. This paper reviews the concepts and research findings concerning value congruence, discusses various behavioral interpretations of the values construct, applies those interpretations to the organizational level, and offers recommendations for how these interpretations might point to more successful organizational change initiatives. (Contains 2 tables.)
