Team level perceptions of autonomy support and job outcomes: A mediation study


Full text not available from this repository.


Self Determination Theory asserts that autonomy supportive environments, termed Perceived Autonomy Support (PAS) enhance wellbeing and job outcomes however, missing from the exploration of PAS is team level analysis, and this study seeks to extend this literature. Data were collected from 457 employee surveys in 199 teams, with employees rating PAS as well as individual outcomes. Structural Equation Modelling was used for analysis, and potential mediation effects from job satisfaction were tested. A partial mediation model was found to fit the data best. Team PAS was positively related to job satisfaction, OCBs and attendance behaviors, while job satisfaction was also positively related to career satisfaction, OCBs and attendance behaviors, and negatively related to turnover intentions. Overall, job satisfaction was found to fully mediate the effect of Team PAS towards career satisfaction and turnover intentions, and partially mediate the effect of Team PAS towards OCBs and attendance behaviors.
