Abstract
In this study, it is aimed to determine the effect of psychological empowerment perception on organizational identification and whether career satisfaction has a mediating role in this effect. A model for the realization of this goal was developed and in order to test the model, data were collected using a questionnaire technique from 262 lawyers working in law offices in Konya. The data obtained were evaluated using descriptive statistics, confirmatory factor analysis, correlation analysis, and structural equation model. As a result of the correlation analysis, positive and significant relationships were found among the variables of psychological empowerment perception, organizational identification, and career satisfaction. In the structural equation model performed to test the hypotheses, it was determined that the effect of psychological empowerment perception on both organizational identification and career satisfaction was found to be positive and significant. In addition, it has been concluded that career satisfaction positively affects organizational identification. Finally, it has been determined that career satisfaction has a partial mediating role in the effect of psychological empowerment perception on organizational identification.
