“Insider status” in organisations May 31, 2007

Posted by Null in HRM.

Insiders are considered as the legitimate members of an organisation. They are generally the employees who exist inside the organisational boundaries. ‘Insider status’, which can be sometimes referred as organisational identification or Esprit De Corps, is a conception of an employees’ mind when he/she is being highly identified by the organisation. Although this identification is intangible in nature, it can affect the performance and motivation of employees in an organisation. Thus organisations must address the ‘status’ issue for the insiders if they want to build relationships with their employees. There had not been much scholarly definition of the term ‘insider status’, but most people talk about organizational identification, commitment, Esprit De Corps, and corporate citizenship when talking about “insider status”. But this insider groups or individuals can have quite a large influence in shaping the future of an organisation.
