Abstract

Based on cognitive consistency theory, this study developed a motivation mechanism linking on-the-job embeddedness to employees’ job behaviors. This mechanism was tested using a sample of 170 subordinate-supervisor dyads. HLM analysis results revealed that organization-based self-esteem fully mediated the influence of on-the-job embeddedness on job performance and organizational citizenship behavior-altruism and partially mediated on-the-job embeddedness’s influence on innovative behavior. However, organization-based self-esteem did not mediate the relationship between on-the-job embeddedness and organizational citizenship behavior-voice. Implications are discussed.
