Research on the construct and operationalisation of organizational-based self-esteem (OBSE) is reviewed. Over two dozen studies of OBSE have been conducted over the past 12 years. Empirical support is found for most of Korman's (1976) propositions about work-related self-esteem. Sources of organisation structure, signals about worth from the organization, as well as direct experiences within the organisation all predict OBSE. In support of self-consistency theory, high levels of OBSE arc related to job satisfaction, organisational commitment, citizenship behaviours, motivation, performance, and turnover, OBSE has been found to be a robust predictor of many organizationally-relevant variables. Implications for future research arc discussed.
