Sampath Kappagoda, Hohd.Zainul Fithri Othman, Gamini De Alwis


Job performance of the employees is one of the central constructs which plays a crucial role in achieving organizational performance. The concept of Psychological Capital (PsyCap) has given much attention in the recent past as a new approach to enhance the job performance of the employees. However, the extent of the impact between PsyCap and job performance has not been investigated in Sri Lankan context. On the other hand the work values and attitudes of Sri Lankan employees are different from other countries. They may affect on the relationship between PsyCap and job performance. Therefore, the purpose of this conceptual paper is to propose a conceptual model for empirically examination of the impact of PsyCap on job performance. Moreover, the effect of work values and attitudes on this relationship is examined by reviewing the relevant literature. The proposed conceptual framework will be a valuable contribution to the future research.
