Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores how the twin concepts of organizational identity and organizational identification might inform the study of organizational climate. After introducing both concepts, the text then draws attention to a version of organizational climate compatible with the authors’ organizational-level perspective: perceived organizational priorities. From there organizational identity is used to theorize about the antecedents of shared perceived organizational climate, and organizational identification is similarly used to theorize about the consequences of individual perceptions of organizational priorities on organizationally relevant behavior. Throughout the chapter the importance of clarifying the historically muddled meaning of “organizational” in organizational climate scholarship is stressed and the merits of examining the social climates of organizations, compared with social climates in organizations, are highlighted.

Keywords: organizational climate, organizational culture, organizational identification, organizational identity, organizational priority alignment, organizational priority strength, perceptions of organizational priorities
