"In the study reported here, hypotheses regarding social determinants of internal motivation and job involvement are generated and tested against data gathered from 522 employees of an assembly and packaging plant. Specifically, it is hypothesized that integration into networks of work-based relationships will be positively associated with internal motivation and negatively associated with job involvement. It is also hypothesized that the strength of these relationships will vary with the employees' orientation toward growth and devleopment. Consistent with the hypotheses, it is found that integration is associated with internal motivation; however, isolates who are growth-oriented are more internally motivated than isolates who are not growth-oriented. There is no main effect of integration on job involvement; however, isolates who are not growth-oriented are more involved in their jobs than are isolates who are growth-oriented. It is concluded that internal motivation and job involvement can be alternative sources of meaning and identity, particularly for people who are isolated from work relationships and therefore are unlikely to be highly involved with the organization."
