Psychological sense of community in the workplace

Katherine J. Klein, Thomas A. D'Aunno

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For working adults, the workplace may be a key referent for the psychological sense of community. Unfortunately, community psychologists have devoted little attention to workers or work organizations. This article provides a preliminary conceptual approach to the referents, determinants, and consequences of a sense of community at work. New directions for research and theory‐building on work organizations and the experience of work are suggested.
