Employees need reliability and predictability in the organization's moral order to properly engage in labor, which has become critical for organizations’ success. Its absence creates a rupture in the firm's capacity to thrive in the market, named anomie. With the aim of looking more deeply into this subject, we have studied the relationship between anomie and social support at work, as well as professional self-concept, to understand and measure the cause-and-effect process. For this purpose, a model has been created to test this hypothesis, which has been analyzed through Structural Equation Modeling. The scales used have already been validated by other researches. The results provide evidence that the proposed model is suitable to identify and measure the relationship between the studied variables, and showing the level of impact that occurs on the system, created by organizational anomie, on social support at work and professional self-concept, together with their component parts.
