ABSTRACT

In the present corporate scenario employees’ need to look beyond their assigned duties at work and adopt a holistic approach .Competitive employee tends to exceed the required role demands and goes that extra mile in order to excel in their overall performance. Contextual performance refers to this discretionary behaviour which goes beyond the boundary of assigned duties and contributes to the overall functioning of the organization. Through this study, the researcher attempts to study the relationship between contextual performance and its psychological correlates i.e. work engagement, psychological empowerment and spirit at work. A sample of 80 corporate executives was considered for the purpose of the study. Through application of correlational analysis, the hypothesized positive relationship between contextual performance and all psychological correlates was found to be significant. Further, through regression analysis psychological empowerment was found to be the strongest predictor of contextual performance among all the psychological correlates under study.
