Understanding Employees’ Willingness to Contribute to Shared Electronic Databases
This is a framework that analyzes what it takes for staff to contribute to a shared databases.
This framework suggests that we understand employee information contribution as the outcome of three key organizational processes:
a) the process of costs-benefits analysis in which employees assess their personal welfare in the organization,
b) the process of organizational identification (OI) in which employees form their relationship with the organization, and
c) the process of collaboration in which employees work together and develop positive or negative orientations toward collaboration.
