Withdrawal cognition among workers in distressed banks: Roles of perceived organisational support and inequality
This study explored the extent to which perceived organisational support and perception of inequality predict withdrawal cognition among 519 employees (266 males; 253 females) of distressed commercial banks, whose ages ranged from 19 to 65 (M = 34.02; SD = 9.54). Data were collected via validated questionnaires. The hypothesis generated was tested using multiple regression analysis. Results indicated that employees who perceived low organisational support and high inequality had high level of withdrawal cognition. Based on these findings, the researchers recommended that bank managers should provide adequate social supports for their employees and treat them equally or make sure that rewards commensurate with input/efforts for all organisational members.
