Out-Group Employees:  An Organizational Dilemma


Outgroup prejudice in the workplace, as qualified by the dyadic relationship with the immediate leader, is a form of intergroup bias.  A review of the literature reveals that social anxiety and feelings of inferiority may contribute to the outgroup experience.  Social comparison, work-related psychosocial stressors, and intergroup discrimination may also contribute to the outgroup experience.  Analysis of workplace relational characteristics further reveals that outgroup status is more likely for individuals who maintain a relatively high power distance from their leadership as delineated through a leader-member exchange relationship.  Outgroup bias results in intergroup social categorization and comparison. Outgroup employees are detrimental to organizational culture.
