In recent development, it has been recognized that one of the main ways to increase the tendency of individuals to organizational membership behavior is through the creation of social condition of working environment. One of the factors that contributes to characterize the social condition of the working environment is a climate of organizational justice. On the other hand, the tendency of organizational membership behavior as shown by colleagues in a unit of work has positive and significant relation to the level of the tendency of individuals who are members of work units to do organizational membership behavior.
"Although the result of this study indicates that the social context of the work environment is positively related to the tendency of individuals to have organizational membership behavior, the results of existing studies are still limited," Drs. Joseph Ludovicus Eko Nugroho, M. Si said, in the 3rd floor of BRI Auditorium of M.Si and Doctoral Programs of Faculty of Economics and Business UGM, Tuesday (25/10). The lecturer of Faculty of Economics, University of Surabaya (Ubaya) delivered this in an open examination of doctoral program by defending his dissertation entitled The Influence of Organizational Membership Behavior Modernization – Group of the Relationship between Organizational Justice Climate and Organizational Membership Behavior of Individuals.
In his research, Joseph Eko Nugroho specifically focused on the role of colleagues to do organizational membership behavior in strengthening organizational justice climate of individual tendency’s perceptions to have organizational membership behavior. Organizational justice climate perception is resulted from the perceptions of members of work units they lead, especially in making employment decisions.
"Based on theoretical arguments from the perspectives of Attraction, Selection, Attrition (ASA), social information processing perspective and social learning, the study examines the increasing tendency of individual organizational membership behavior as a result of the influence of social conditions of working unit’s environment (working group) characterized by perception of climate organizational justice and organizational membership behavior tendencies as shown by colleagues in a working group," he explained.
As a whole, through the use of cross-level moderated analysis approach, theoretical arguments explained by three perspectives are empirically confirmed to explain the increased tendency of individual organizational membership behavior in a social environment of working group. In addition, theoretical arguments that are provided by the models are complementary and not contradictory to the theoretical arguments of ASA’s perspective, the perspective of social information processing and social learning theory.
