Chapter 5: A motivational model of employee attachment to an organization
Organizations are concerned with attracting employees who will both be highly engaged and want to stay with the organization. This requires ensuring that those who are attracted to working in an organization have their needs met, both in the organization and in the community in which the organization operates. Integrating job embeddedness theory, self-determination theory, and the tripartite model of commitment, a motivational model of the process of attachment to organizations is proposed. Suggestions for empirically testing this model, and for building human resource management practices that would foster organizational attachment, are discussed.
