The Impact of Professional Identity on Organisational Identification: A comparative Study of Academics and Managers
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper is to detail findings of a study examining the relationship between employee professional identity and the impact that this has on an employee’s level of organisational identification. This is examined using two comparative groups of employees, namely academics and managers. The findings suggest that there are significant differences between the professional identities of academics and managers through their level of participation in their industry, their belief about their value to the community, and their sense of calling to their profession. Findings also suggest that this has a significant impact on their level of organisational identification. The implication of this research includes greater understanding into the impact that professional attributes have on different types of employees.
