Aygul Turan

Abstract


The concept of organizational cronyism has been investigated to explain different concepts in
the literature. In this study, we aim at researching the influence of organizational cronyism on
organizational commitment of individuals and explain how the influence differentiates their
career satisfaction or frustration with work perception of individuals. Therefore, we focused
on government officials working in a public institution and examine their perception of
cronyism in the organization. Having gathered the data from 193 government officials,
confirmatory as well as explanatory factor analyses initially was initially conducted on the
scales of organizational cronyism, organizational commitment, career satisfaction and
frustration with work. After controlling the validity and reliability of the scales, measurement
model and structural model testing were carried out. Results indicated that organizational
commitment partially mediated the relationship between organizational cronyism and career
satisfaction. In addition, organizational commitment partially mediated the relationship
between organizational cronyism and frustration with work.
