Locating conviction within organizations
- Organizations often signal values to stakeholders, and can face both benefits and costs when they do so. This dissertation examines how and why organizations—potentially inadvertently—signal values as a function of their communications and behaviors. In Chapter 1, I provide a brief outline of relevant literatures, and summarize the focus of this dissertation. In Chapter 2, I explore how people attribute moral conviction to different agents within organizations. In Chapter 3, I investigate how people attribute moral conviction to superordinate organizations with different levels of access to resources. In Chapter 4, I examine how different rates of transition can influence people's perceptions of how committed organizations are to the values underlying changes or improvements. I discuss implications concerning signaling, reputation and impression management, and ethics.
