ABSTRACT
Field experiment results indicated that three months after the group bonus component of a 17- month gainsharing program was eliminated, but the participation component remained, residual effects existed. Higher levels of moral commitment and prosocial behavior and less intention to leave were observed in the experimental group than the control group.
