Types of Involvement
CALCULATIVE involvement designates either a negative or a low intensity of
positive orientation towards the organization. If the rules of the game
are such is where only one group or particular participants are benefited
all the time, other groups or participants will be calculative.
MORAL involvement designates positive orientation of high intensity. We
morally involve ourselves in a system whose environment is conducive to
excel skills and provide with opportunity to fulfil personal goals and
ALIENATIVE involvement designates an intense negative orientation. This
kind of involvement is born in atmosphere where people feel that they are
not getting what they are expecting. The alienation takes place when
people have less trust in each other and every one is working for their
own self interests.
The type of involvement has negative and positive implications on
organizations. Each type of involvement flourishes in a peculiar
type of organizational environment or the vice versa.
