Feedback environment reflects the perceptions of the contextual, day-to-day feedback process within supervisor-subordinate relationships. Here, we present a comprehensive meta-analysis of the feedback environment literature. Based on K = 112 independent samples, representing N = 31,089 workers, results suggest that feedback environment is positively related to feedback orientation (rc = .42), leader–member exchange (rc = .81), supervisor-rated performance (rc = .29), and negatively related to burnout (rc = -.51). Moreover, we present multiple regression and relative weights analyses to consider the unique and incremental predictive power of feedback environment above-and-beyond two related constructs: leader–member exchange and feedback orientation. The results suggest that feedback environment explains unique variance in several correlates and is a particularly important predictor of (lower) burnout.
