International Journal of Educational Methodology, v4 n4 p287-302 2018
This research aims to combine the results of the studies conducted in educational organizations between the years 2008-2018 that investigated correlation between organizational trust, and organizational support, organizational citizenship, organizational justice, organizational commitment, mobbing, organizational silence, job satisfaction, organizational cynicism and ethical leadership and obtain an overall result. Within this scope, meta-analytic method was used in the study. A literature review was performed by using the concepts "trust" and "organizational trust." A total of 43 independent studies were incorporated into the research by considering the selection criteria determined by the researcher. The total sample size (teacher, academician and school administrator) is 22859. The studies included in the research were analyzed according to random effects model (REM). According to the results of the analysis, there is a high positive correlation between organizational trust, organizational justice [r = 0.70] and ethical leadership [r = 0.82]; a moderate positive correlation between organizational trust and organizational commitment [r = 0.51], organizational support [r = 0.57], organizational citizenship [r = 0.43] and job satisfaction [r = 0.61]. In addition, there was a moderate negative correlation between organizational trust, organizational cynicism [r = -0.62] and organizational silence [r = -0.30]; and also a low negative correlation between organizational trust and mobbing [r = -0.24]. Based on these findings, the high level of organizational justice, organizational support and ethical leadership perceptions of the education stakeholders increase level of organizational trust; whereas the high level of organizational trust increases their job satisfaction, organizational citizenship behaviors and organizational commitment, and reduces organizational cynicism and organizational silence perceptions. In addition, employees' exposure to mobbing causes a decrease in organizational trust levels.
