Abstract

How to motivate employees' intrapreneurial behavior has become a key factor in improving innovation. Previous research only considered a single perspective of people or the environment, neglected the interaction between the two, and lacked an in-depth analysis of the internal entrepreneurial processes and mechanisms. This paper introduces new variables, employment relationship quality and entrepreneurial sentiment, and reveals how internal entrepreneurial policies influence entrepreneurs' internal entrepreneurial activities through entrepreneurial subjectivity. The theoretical contributions of this paper include introducing entrepreneurial subjectivity to analyze employees' internal entrepreneurial behaviors, classifying internal entrepreneurial policies from three dimensions and discussing their impact on employees' entrepreneurship, and revealing the revealing the impact of entrepreneurial policies from the interaction between people and organizations, which opens the black box of the dynamic process and internal mechanisms of arousing employees' innovation behavior.
