Constructing Positive Organization Identity with Virtuous Positive Practices
by Chen, Basil Kuo Chih, Ph.D., Benedictine University, 2014, 242; 3584795
Abstract (Summary)

This study explores the impact of virtuous positive practices on organization identity, specifically it addresses the question of how organizations use virtuous positive practices to construct a positive organization identity. I use an inductive approach to conduct a case study of two organizations that have a reputation of outstanding culture, employee engagement, customer orientation, and have contributed to their respective communities. The study presents a model with a set of five propositions describing how the two organizations use virtuous positive practices to construct a positive organization identity. Key findings suggest that when virtuous thoughts, inspiring words, and empowering deeds are aligned in the construction process, the resultant identity characteristics are imbued with positivity.
