Determinants of solidarity behavior in modern organizations

Determinants of solidarity behavior in modern organizations

Karin Sanders, Ben Emans & Ferry Koster, Gedrag & Organisatie, Volume 17, April 2004, nr. 2, pp. 120-130.

Based on the articles published in the 'Solidarity at Work' series during the last year, this article presents a theoretical analysis of solidarity behavior. In analogy with the motivation-theory of Alderfer (1972) a distinction is made between material, social and intrinsic benefits of solidarity behavior. In addition, two factors that stimulate solidarity are distinguished: instrumentality, the chance that solidarity leads to a specific benefit, and valence, the value of that benefit. The determinants of solidarity behavior, as examined in the series of Solidarity at Work, are discussed in the context of this framework. Finally, the practical implications of the theoretical analysis and consequences for society are discussed.
