The impacts of superior politics on frontline employees' behavioral and psychological outcomes
Abstract:In this study the effect of superior politics on frontline employees' behavioral and psychological outcomes was examined using data collected from 4- and 5-star hotels in Northern Cyprus. The research hypotheses were tested using LISREL 8.54 through path analysis. The model test results indicated that scarce resources are a significant determinant of superior politics. In addition, path analysis results showed that superior politics and scarce resources have a significant negative association with subordinate performance. The model test findings also demonstrated that superior politics and scarce resources are negatively associated with job satisfaction. This research, however, failed to uncover a significant positive association between subordinate performance and job satisfaction. Similarly, scarce resources and subordinate performance did not have significant associations with job commitment.
