were obtained from a sample (N= 586) of officers into the Spanish Army via a mailed
survey regarding their perceptions of organizational unfulfilment of promises made during
the professional soldiers’ recruitment campaign. Structural equation modelling was used
and results showed that organizational unfulfilment of promises, employee performance
and employee organizational commitment explained internal attributions blaming the
organization. Moreover, collaborative organizational culture and internal attributions
accounted a great percentage of variance in supervisors’ perceptions regarding organizational
