Clima ético benevolente y autoeficacia laboral. La mediación de la motivación intrínseca y la moderación del compromiso afectivo en el sector eléctrico colombiano



Palabras clave:

Clima ético, Clima ético benevolente, Autoeficacia, Motivación intrínseca, Compromiso afectivo, Sector Eléctrico Colombiano


El sector eléctrico colombiano cada vez recibe una mayor presión para que opere de una manera responsable. En ese sentido, un clima ético benevolente encaja con las expectativas de todas las partes interesadas. Asimismo, el compromiso afectivo, la motivación intrínseca y la autoeficacia son recursos personales imprescindibles para la sostenibilidad organizacional. Este artículo tiene como objetivo analizar el efecto moderador del compromiso afectivo y el mediador de la motivación intrínseca respecto a la relación entre clima ético benevolente y autoeficacia laboral. Se usa un modelo condicional, cuantitativo-correlacional. La muestra la componen 448 empleados con estudios universitarios. Un clima que se apoya en sentimientos de amistad, interés común y responsabilidad social regula las emociones y las impulsa en una clara dirección positiva, lo que nutre la identificación afectiva persona-organización y la motivación más íntima del empleado; además, ajusta e incrementa la autoeficacia laboral. El propiciar contextos laborales prosociales es prioritario en Colombia pues las organizaciones, y especialmente las públicas, no pueden apartar su mirada de los procesos éticos y de las necesidades sociales
