Abstract/Description:
Reactions toward performance feedback have critical implications for organizations and are of great interest to practitioners. Unfortunately, the measurement of employee experiences with feedback intervention varies widely and the literature is flooded with atheoretical, untested measures. Measurement is also commonly done at a global reaction level, largely neglecting the complexity of feedback intervention. The current study presents and tests a new multidimensional measure of feedback intervention perceptions. The measure is intended to capture facet level perceptions regarding the characteristics of five feedback intervention components (i.e., Performance Measurement, Feedback Content, Feedback Delivery, Organizational System Support, and Feedback Source). Items were generated deductively based on influential works in the feedback and performance management literatures. Confirmatory factor analysis supported a five-factor structure. Correlational analyses demonstrated strong but differential relationships between the measure and several global feedback reaction measures and job satisfaction. Finally, regression analyses demonstrated significant direct effects of feedback intervention perceptions on motivation and intent to use feedback. Organizational (procedural and distributive) justice served to mediate the relationship between the Feedback Intervention Perceptions Scale and motivation. Overall, results support the validity and potential utility of the Feedback Perceptions Scale for both research and practice. Implications for theory and practice and directions for future research are discussed.
