Organizational justice and organizational citizenship behavior: the mediating role of work engagement.
Heliyon. 2022 May; 8(5):e09450.H

Abstract

The intention of this paper is to investigate the mediating role of work engagement between the four dimensions of organizational justice (OJ) and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) dimensions. The current literature appears to have overlooked the mediating role of work engagement (WE) in the link between justice and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) in higher education institutions (HEIs). As a result, it appears to be one of the primary studies of its kind to investigate the relationship between OJ dimensions (e.g., procedural, distributive, informational, and interpersonal justice) and OCB dimensions (e.g., OCBI and OCBO). Data were collected from 121 faculty members from ten private universities operating in Bangladesh. The PLS-SEM was employed to investigate hypotheses. The investigation found OJ is positively connected to WE. Besides, WE is significantly related to OCB. Moreover, WE mediated the relationship between OJ dimensions and OCB dimensions, except for the relationship between PJ and OCB dimensions. The study provides necessary guidelines for the organizations regarding how they might improve citizenship behavior by ensuring justice and engagement in the workplace. Therefore, the application of the findings might ensure better employee outcomes and organizational productivity.
