Does organisational justice predict employees’ organisational survival? A five years’ study
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology. (Division of Work and Organizational Psychology)
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The empirical evidence on the relationship between organisational justice and turnover is still in question. Most studies have explored the relationship between procedural justice and turnover intentions, studies on actual turnover are rare, have also only focused on procedural justice and found inconsistent results (Posthuma, Maertz, & Dworkin, 2007). Recently, a shift from specific justice dimensions towards the consideration of overall organisational justice has been proposed (Ambrose & Schminke, 2009). Stepwise logistic regression is used to explore the importance of organisational justice among other predictors for actual turnover that have been proposed such as variables from the stress and job content field (Griffeth, Hom, & Gaertner, 2000). Survival analysis as the adequate statistical tool neglected so far will be applied to study whether overall organisational justice predicts the belonging to the group of the remaining or left employees which provides a more stringent test for the issue. Questionnaire data comes from Swedish accountants who were administered over the course of five years. Preliminary results hint at that organisational justice perceptions indeed were significantly lower in employees who left the organisation. Also, trust was lower, salary, job satisfaction and commitment whereas role conflict, job insecurity and health complaints were higher. The described analyses follow. This study helps clarifying inconsistent findings regarding the relationship between organisational justice and turnover, introduces the new perspective of overall organisational justice and tests whether the relation to turnover is specific to procedural justice.
