Organizational citizenship behavior among hospital employees: a multidimensional analysis involving job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
Hosp Health Serv Adm. 1997 Summer; 42(2):221-41.HH

Abstract

As hospitals continue to face intense pressure to control operating costs, many have resorted to staff reductions and other redesign efforts. The remaining employees are frequently asked to do more with less. In these uncertain times, it is important that hospital administrators understand the concept of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and attempt to attract and retain those employees capable of exhibiting such behaviors. This study examined the relationships between three organizational commitment components, as well as job satisfaction (including specific facet measures) and two separate forms of OCB. Usefulness analyses indicated that satisfaction with coworkers and affective commitment were the two most important predictors of one dimension of citizenship behavior, as each construct contributed unique variance in the dependent variable. Implications for future research and practice are provided.
