Organizational Citizenship Behavior: Its Nature, Antecedents, and Consequences examines the vast amount of work that has been done on organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) in recent years as it has increasingly evoked interest among researchers in organizational psychology. No doubt some of this interest can be attributed to the long-held intuitive sense that job satisfaction matters. Authors Dennis W. Organ, Philip M. Podsakoff, and Scott B.

The Effects of OCB on Performance Evaluations and Judgments

The effects of OCB on performance evaluations and judgments

The previous chapters focused primarily on the individual and organizational-level antecedents of OCB.
