MetadataShow full item record
In this article, the authors extend prior research on employees'perception of service climate by testing the impact of employees'perception of organizational trust on service climate and employee satisfaction. Multidimensional constructs of trust and service climate were developed using the literature in the trust and service management domains. Results support the hypothesized relationships between the constructs, in that trust affects service climate and employee satisfaction, whereas service climate affects employee satisfaction in a significant way. Implications for practitioners and future research ensue, which underscores the importance of building trust and service climate to ensure employee satisfaction in hotel firms.
