Abstract

Cross-sector social partnerships (CSSPs) represent a unique form of collective social entrepreneurship. This research explores team selection control–the ability of an entrepreneurial social collective to provide input into the selection of team members–as an important antecedent of team and job satisfaction. Additionally, this study considers the role of justice in moderating these relationships. The role of team selection control was tested in a sample of cross-sector social partnerships spanning all three economic sectors and divergent social objectives. Primary study results indicate that team selection control is important to individuals participating in CSSPs and that perceived levels of justice can moderate the relationships between team selection control and job and team satisfaction. The implications for scholars and practitioners are discussed.
