The development of the present research framework is basically based on the work of Ghafoor, Qureshi, Khan & Hijazi, (2011), Sledge, Miles & Coppage (2008), and Viswesvaran, (1993). In their study, they have examined the intrinsic and extrinsic factors, the dimensions involved for psychological ownership and work performance. Figure 2.6 below displayed the constructed research theoretical framework for this study. In this research study, intrinsic motivation factors as independent variable with 4 dimensions identified which are achievement, personal growth, advancement and responsibility. Another independent variable in this research will be extrinsic motivation factors which consisted salary, job security, working condition and company policy. There would be mediator which known as psychological ownership and will be measuring on four dimensions of self-efficacy, accountability, belongings and self-identity. Work performance is the dependent variable which measure on quality, productivity, communication competence and job knowledge.
This theoretical framework is align with the Herzberg’s Two Factor Theory of Motivation which explains the influence of hygiene (extrinsic) and motivator (intrinsic) factors towards work performance. Based on the Herzberg theory, intrinsic and extrinsic are the factors that could be affecting job satisfaction. It can be assume that intrinsic and extrinsic motivation factors increases the employees’ job satisfaction which contributes to high work performance Apart from that, the role of psychological ownership as mediator is align with theoretical dimensions of PO by Pierce et al (2001), and Avey et al (2009) which known as contribution of this study. It has been assume that intrinsic and extrinsic motivating factors indirectly influence work performance through PO. Dependent variable of this study selected work performance as measurement on work quality, communication competence, job knowledge and productivity. These measurement emphasized for work performance since related to the current issues in banking sectors. The measurement of work performance derived from the theory based on Viswesvaran (1993). After a thoroughly examination of the four theories in this study, researcher decided to utilize Herzberg Theory as the fundamental theory to explain the impact of intrinsic and extrinsic motivating factors on the work performance when psychological ownership acts as mediator of the study.
