Dimensions Of Institutionalized Organizational Trust And Firm’s Innovativeness

Anna Sankowska , Joanna Paliszkiewicz


The primary goal of this article was to empirically assess how institutionalized organizational trust dimensions are linked with firm’s innovativeness. An approach to conceptualize and measure multidimensional institutionalized organizational trust as a profile model was proposed. The factor analysis, based on a survey study, was used to examine the dimensionality of the institutionalized organizational trust measure. Next, the regression analysis was used to assess the relationship between institutionalized organizational trust dimensions, such as organizational ability, integrity, benevolence, and willingness to be vulnerable, and the dependent variable of firm’s innovativeness. The findings revealed a significant positive relationship between the dimensions of institutionalized organizational trust and innovativeness. In other words, the higher the dimensions of institutionalized organizational trust, the higher the firm’s innovativeness. In addition, our results reveal that organizational willingness to be vulnerable and benevolence is of primary importance for establishing innovativeness. The practical implications for enhancing firm’s innovativeness based on findings are discussed.
