Organizational Identification of Scientists

The article presents a discussion of occupational sociology and reports on the growth and development in the field of study. Beginning in the 1930's, social psychologists began evaluating the way employees viewed themselves within an organization. Worker identity can have an impact on motivation, organizational commitment and the performance of various work groups. Employee behavior is discussed as a mix of commitment and identity between professional orientation, company orientation and individual self interest. A specific example of scientists as a part of an organization is presented.
