The Link Between Heterogeneity in Employment Arrangements, Team Cohesion and Team Organizational Citizenship Behavior: A Moderated Mediation Model
With the worldwide popularity of flexible employment arrangements in the last two decades, how to manage the employment blending team has aroused more research interests. This study investigates a moderated mediation model linking heterogeneity in employment arrangements with team organizational citizenship behavior based on social identity theory. Collecting data from four Chinese medical organizations, we provide evidence that heterogeneity in employment arrangements influences team organizational citizenship behavior through team cohesion, and the relationship between heterogeneity in employment arrangements and team cohesion is moderated by leader humility.
