This article focuses on the article "A New Look at Psychological Climate and Its Relationship to Job Involvement, Effort, and Performance," by Steven P. Brown and Thomas W. Leigh, published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. The study investigated the process by which employee perceptions of the organizational environment are related to job involvement, effort, and performance. Perceived psychological climate was related to job involvement, effort, and performance in a path analytic framework. Results revealed that a modest but statistically significant effect of job involvement on performance became nonsignificant when effort was inserted into the model, indicating the mediating effect of effort on the relationship.
