Perceived manager integrity and employee job satisfaction in the information technology industry

by Merrill, Susan J., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2014, 106 pages; 3635046


This dissertation examines the impact of perceived management integrity on employee job satisfaction in the IT industry. This study uses a quantitative analysis based on data collected from an online survey of IT employees in the United States using two established instruments the Perceived Leadership Integrity Survey (PLIS) and Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS), combined with demographic variables of gender, age, education, and time in the IT industry. This dissertation confirms that there is a strong correlation between perceived management integrity and employee job satisfaction, while also revealing differences in how the employee's gender and the manager's gender affect perceived management integrity.
