Employee samples at each research site were drawn from representative groups within
the organization. Subjects were recruited by a memorandum from me, with assistance from
managers at each site (see Appendix A for an example of the memorandum). This process of
selection is common in management research and is adequate to provide a representative sample
(Victor & Cullen, 1987, 1988). Corresponding with commonly accepted statistical sampling
techniques, the samples included a minimum of thirty subjects at each site, where possible
(Anderson, Sweeney, & Williams, 1981). Because of the small size of two of the organizations,
sample sizes there were smaller than thirty. Each sample was representative of the work group
population, but these samples did present some concern during the data analyses (see Chapter 5
for further discussion of this issue).
