Organizational Commitment as predictor of Organizational Citizenship Behavior

Arti Bakhshi, Atul Dutt Sharma, Kuldeep Kumar


The present study aimed at exploring the linkages between Allen and Meyer’s (1991) three component model of organizational commitment and organizational citizenship behavior as defined by Organ (1988), using a field survey on a randomly selected sample of 77 employees working in National Hydroelectric Power Corporation Ltd., a public sector organization in India. Organizational Commitment was measured using revised version of Organizational Commitment Scale by Allen and Meyer (1997) and organizational citizenship behavior scale (OCBS) developed by Bakhshi and Kumar (2009) was used as an aggregate measure of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). The results of partial correlation analysis showed that all the three components of organizational commitment-Affective commitment, Continuance commitment and Normative commitment were positively correlated with aggregate measure of OCB. Hierarchical Regression analyses showed no significant impact of demographic variables (age, gender, job tenure, marital status and qualification) on aggregate measure of OCB. Among the three components of organizational commitment, only normative commitment has a significant positive impact on aggregate measure of OCB. Theoretical and practical implications of the results are discussed.
