Leader-member exchange and employee work outcomes in Chinese firms: The mediating role of job satisfaction
This study investigates the mediating role of job satisfaction in the relationships between leader-member exchange (LMX) and employee work outcomes in Chinese firms, namely, organizational commitment and intention to leave. Based on the data collected from the four manufacturing firms based in China, the hierarchical regression analyses strongly support our theoretical predication that job satisfaction fully mediates the relationships between LMX and employees' organizational commitment and intention to leave. The theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
