Abstract [en]

Workers typically function as part of a team, which is a central feature of organizations since teamwork is related to important organizational outcomes such as increase in organizational innovation, reduction of turnover, job satisfaction, motivation and psychological health (e.g. Xyrichis & Ream, 2008; Rafferty, Ball, & Aiken, 2001). Hence, one effect of such a collaborative work structure is that it highlights the importance of co-workers in reaching personal and organizational goals. The present investigation considers whether co-workers may exert a motivational influence on one another that is as strong as the influence exerted by managers. Specifically, from a self-determination theory framework, we examined whether support for autonomy and competence from co-workers and patients’ families would be associated with important work outcomes, such as intrinsic work motivation, to a degree comparable with association of support from managers.
