Abstract/Artist Statement

This paper introduces a concept of trust and whether or not it is linked to social identity and job satisfaction in organizations. Trust has been studied by many researchers as a relationship concept; however, its conceptualization is dependent upon the various perspectives of disciplinary lenses. For this research, trust is conceptualized as a belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, and effective; furthermore, for the purposes of this literature review, an institutional-based construct for trust will be the focus. To be specific, the institutional-based construct of trust is conceptualized as one who believes the needed conditions are in place to enable one to anticipate a successful outcome in an endeavor or aspect of one’s lie. The paper elaborates on the psychological, relational, and institutional based construct of trust. It then discusses how perceptions of organizational politics are very important aspects of organizational life with respect to its members as trust is influenced because of various processes which ultimately affect performance of employees. The research was conducted through a qualitative methodological approach to study trust as it relates to social identity and job satisfaction. The findings are based on interviews that support the hypothesis that trust and social support are good moderators of the relationship between social identity, perceived organizational politics and job satisfaction (Vigoda-Gadot & Talmund, 2010). Therefore, the purpose of this study is to obtain a deeper understanding of whether or not trust is a critical link between social identity affected by psychological contract breaches (lying) resulting from perceived organizational politics and job satisfaction.
