For example, identification with one’s group leads to an increase in ingroup favouritism and outgroup discrimination (Tarrant, Hargreaves, & North, 2001). Many studies have shown that the idiosyncratic identification of individuals with their social category has a direct influence on their ingroup favouritism and bias against outgroup (Branscombe, Wann, Noel, & Coleman, 1993; Branscombe, Ellemers, Spears, & Doosje, 1999; Jetten, Spears, & Manstead, 1996; Roccas & Schwartz, 1993). Therefore, in the case of a merger, identification with one’s pre-merger organization will lead to an increase in discrimination against members of the other merging party.
