Organizational Cynicism: Definitions, Bases, and Consequences
Abraham (business administration, Nova Southeastern U.) identifies cynicism as one of the principal causes of lass of organizational productivity and investigates the causes and consequences of cynicism within a theoretical construct that sees the phenomena as part of a process rather than an isolated trait. The notion of organizational citizenship as a function of bonds tying employees to their organizations is applied to the study of organizational cynicism, which is seen as a product of the weakening of those bonds as organizations renege on promises.
