Abstract

We empirically examine the effect of task and work responsibilities idiosyncratic deals (task i-deals) on employees’ perceived insider status (PIS) and the moderating roles of perceived overall justice (POJ) and coworker support. Data were collected by using self-reported questionnaires administered to a sample of 750 employees from three government-owned companies in Taiwan. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess the reliability and validity of measurements and hierarchical regression analysis to test for the hypothesized relationships. This study adds to the existing literature by showing that task i-deals exert positive influence on employees’ PIS, POJ negatively moderates the positive relationship between task i-deals and PIS, and coworker instrumental support positively moderates the relationship. However, the positive moderating effects of coworker emotional support on the relationship were not empirically supported. The findings are useful for flexible work design. We briefly discussed some theoretical and practical implications based on the research results obtained.
