MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study is to reveal the effect of perceived organizational support (POS) on organizational identification (OI) and to test the mediating role of fit to organization (FO) within the context of academicians. Data are collected by questionnaire from 193 academicians who are determined by total sampling method. Correlation and Regression analyses are performed to test the research hypotheses. Results show that there is a strong correlation among variables and perceived organizational support is a significant contributor to organizational identification. Moreover, POS has an insignificant effect on OI, while FO significantly affects OI. With reference to Regression analysis, we also performed the Sobel test in order to determine the significance of the mediator effect. Sobel test results confirm that fit into organization of participants has a significant effect on OI; meanwhile, it is a mediator between organizational support perceived by participants and their organizational identification.
