Abstract

In spite of strong indications that CEO organizational identification can be beneficial for the firm, its determinants have not received prior research attention. In this paper, we provide and test a theoretical framework of antecedents of CEO organizational identification that draws on both the organizational identification literature and on the literature that pertains to the unique role, power, visibility, and control structures of the CEO position. Our theory and supportive results suggest that CEO organizational identification will be enhanced by organizational differentiation, firm-specific CEO esteem-relevant feedback, CEO vested interest in the firm, and CEO control over the firm.
