    Abstract

    © 2017 Regents of the University of California The paper investigates the relationship between mission congruence and the reliance on incentives and delegation of decision making, using a dataset on 206 childcare centers. We find that mission congruence between childcare teachers and employers is negatively related to the likelihood of reliance on financial incentives and positively related to teacher autonomy. These results support the idea that worker preferences play an important role in the design of organizations.
