Antecedents and consequences of management-espoused organizational cultural control
The issue of control is central to many conceptualizations of work and work organization. Although the body of research on organizational culture control is growing, this literature has a number of limitations. This article encourages theory building by supplying generalizable empirical evidence of the practices of organizations that aim to enhance management-espoused cultural control as well as developing insights into how such efforts impact on employees. The analysis of the responses to a survey of one thousand firms finds a number of significant associations between the three antecedent factors and cultural control as well as three associations with consequences. The article culminates with a discussion of the contributions and implications of these findings.
