Calculative commitment and retaliation: an integrated view of the concepts in a public organization
AbstractThis article aims to contribute to the revision of the multidimensionality of the concept of commitment and the development of relevant research on the subject of misbehavior in the workplace, through the discussion on the basis of calculative commitment and its relation to behavior of negligence as a reaction to a state of dissatisfaction. The research was quantitative and the prospect was held in a public organization with offices in ten cities of Brazil. The sampling was random and stratified proportional by area of operation and resulted in 519 respondents. The instruments were: Awareness and trial of Organizational Retaliation Scale and Calculative Organizational Commitment Scale. The results show that employees of this organization have a low level of calculative commitment and low perception of retaliation, which indicates a positive relationship between the two constructs. These results corroborate other studies that show positive correlations between the calculative base and undesirable behaviors, the opposite way to other bases of multidimensional commitment - affective
and normative - and thus confirm the suggestion of withdrawal of calculative basis this concept, and treatment separately as organizational entrenchment.
