Abstract

The moderating effects of nine organizational climate factors were examined on the relationships between four goal-setting attributes and three measures of employee satisfaction. Subjects were 245 scientists and engineers participating in an MBO program. Researchers did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a general statement concerning the moderating effects of organizational climate in this context. Explanations, however, are offered for the specific moderating effects which were discovered.
