Title: The Multilevel Interplay of Team Health Culture, Department Health Culture, and Employee Health Motivation to Predict Health Behaviors, Engagement, and Job Satisfaction

Abstract: To combat rising healthcare costs (WHO, 2018), organizations are focusing on strategies to improve employee health, such as creating a culture of health throughout the entire organization. Despite theories about organizations containing multiple levels of culture (Chao, 2000), most studies of organizational culture have only focused on one level at a time (Chatman & O’Reilly, 2016). To address these gaps, I will measure health culture at the team and department level in a midsized, multinational organization (NEmp. = 1200, NTeams = ~150, NDept. = ~40) to predict employees’ diet, physical activity, alcohol consumption, and smoking behaviors. In addition, I will extend previous research (Sonnentag et al., 2017) to show how employee’s health motivation mediates the effects of health culture on their health behaviors. This dissertation also examines how employees’ fit with their health culture affects their engagement and job satisfaction. This prospectus makes a number of novel contributions to the literature. It is the first to study the effects of cultural (mis)alignment in the context of health culture as well as the first to examine study employees’ fit with their groups’ health culture.
