Title

The effects of participative decision making and procedural justice on organizational citizenship behavior

Abstract

Research on the topics of procedural justice and participative decision making (PDM) has been extensive over the last four decades. Procedural justice provides a framework for predicting the perceived fairness of procedures in an organization. PDM is concerned with shared decision making in the workplace. Only recently has the concept of organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) gained the attention of business leaders and organizational psychologists. OCB is discretionary behavior by an individual that is not recognized by his/her organization's formal reward system, but that does contribute positively to the organization. All three of these concepts have been identified as having value in an organization, as well as value to organization members. The purpose of this research is to evaluate if PDM and procedural justice are positively related to OCB. The following research reveals findings from a study conducted on a college campus using vignettes and questionnaires to assess participants' willingness to engage in OCBs. Results from this study indicate that there were no significant findings when evaluating if there are main effects or interactive effects of participation decision making and procedural justice on organizational citizenship behavior.
