Counterproductive Work Behavior, Perceived Organizational Support, Personality, Workplace Deviance
This study examines the relationship between perceived organizational support and counterproductive work behavior, and whether one's personality moderates this relationship. Data were obtained from 235 employed respondents who consented to participate in the study. Correlations indicated a relationship between perceived organizational support and both forms of counterproductive work behavior (i.e., interpersonal and organizational deviance). However, hierarchical regression analysis showed that conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness to experience did not moderate the relationship between perceived organizational support and either form of counterproductive work behavior, except in a subset of the sample. Implications of the findings as they pertain to future research are discussed.
