Does Group-Level Commitment Predict Employee Well-Being? A Prospective Analysis
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the links between group-level affective organizational commitment (AOC) and individual-level psychological well-being, self-reported sickness absence, and sleep disturbances.
METHODS: A total of 5085 care workers from 301 workgroups in the Danish eldercare services participated in both waves of the study (T1  and T2 ). The three outcomes were analyzed using linear multilevel regression analysis, multilevel Poisson regression analysis, and multilevel logistic regression analysis, respectively.
RESULTS: Group-level AOC (T1) significantly predicted individual-level psychological well-being, self-reported sickness absence, and sleep disturbances (T2). The association between group-level AOC (T1) and psychological well-being (T2) was fully mediated by individual-level AOC (T1), and the associations between group-level AOC (T1) and self-reported sickness absence and sleep disturbances (T2) were partially mediated by individual-level AOC (T1).
CONCLUSIONS: Group-level AOC is an important predictor of employee well-being in contemporary health care organizations.
