• The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between employees’ satisfaction with workplace meetings and psychological empowerment. • Psychological empowerment is intrinsic task motivation manifested in four cognitions: meaning, competence, self-determination, and impact (Spreitzer, 1995) • Meetings are a central part of the workplace that can affect many different aspects of one’s job and can also influence the general success of an organization. Meeting satisfaction has important affects on job attitudes and predicts overall job satisfaction (Rogelberg, et al., 2010) •Meetings are a major job characteristic and what happens in them impacts the development of employee job attitudes and behaviors. The context in which meetings are embedded are similar to contexts in which empowerment typically occurs. Hypotheses: We predicted that meeting satisfaction would be positively related to psychological empowerment beyond its traditional antecedents, and that Meeting load would moderate the relationship such that the relationship is stronger when meeting load is higher.
