Drawing from resource-based theories of organizational performance outcomes, the current study examined how the interplay between more intangible or psychological variables predicts an employee’s understanding of and motivation to contribute to company growth. The sample consisted of N=21,497 employees at a Fortune 500 company and spanned 55 regions/countries. Multilevel structural equation modeling was used to assess the relationship between manager relations, affective commitment, and perceptions of compensation in predicting growth. Affective commitment mediated the relationship between manager relations and growth at the individual level but the model did not reproduce these results at the group level. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed.
