THE EFFECTS OF ORGANIZATIONAL CENTRALITY ON EMPLOYEE CAREER SUCCESS AND SATISFACTION
Abstract:The relationships between the outcomes of career success and career satisfaction and organizational centrality, how close employees are to where power, information and decision making are concentrated in their organization, was examined among 79 employees from a small manufacturing company. Each employee completed a measure of Organizational Centrality and indicated how much their salary had grown and how many promotions they had received since joining the company. They also indicated how satisfied they were with their career so far and in the likely future. With one exception, all the correlations between organizational centrality and career outcomes were significantly positive, confirming what was hypothesized.
