Higher Order Need Strength as a Moderator of the Job scope Employee Outcome Relationship: A Meta-Analysis
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
A meta‐analysis was conducted to test the moderating effect of higher‐order need strength on the relationship between job scope and employee outcomes. Twenty samples were combined empirically using a modification of the Schmidt‐Hunter procedure. Results provided some evidence of the hypothesized moderator effect for job satisfaction, motivation and performance, with the evidence for job satisfaction being strongest. Employees high on higher‐order need strength demonstrated stronger correlations with all employee outcomes than employees low in need strength.
