The Influence of Cultural Congruency, Communication, and Work Alienation on Employee Satisfaction and Commitment in Mexican Organizations
Madlock, Paul E.
Western Journal of Communication, v76 n4 p380-396 2012
This study examined the influence of cultural congruency between societal and organizational cultures on Mexican supervisors' and employees' communication behaviors and employees' work alienation, satisfaction, and commitment. The participants were full time nonmanagement adults working for Mexican owned organizations located in Mexico. This study was grounded by the Theory of Independent Mindedness (TIM). The findings offered support for the value of cultural congruency between the societal culture and the organizational culture. Additional findings indicated that power distance, communication apprehension (CA), supervisors' avoidance messages, and work alienation were all positively related to the job satisfaction and organizational commitment of Mexican employees.
