Psychometric Properties of Podsakoff’s Organizational Citizenship Behaviour Scale in the Asian Context
The Organizational Citizenship Behavior Scale developed by Podsakoff, et al.(1990) has mostly been found to have better psychometric properties in the western countries mainly North America and there is a dearth of studies that portray the meaningfulness & relevance of using this measure in the Asian cultural contexts. The present study was thus aimed at checking the psychometric properties of this scale on a sample of permanent professionals working at the three main human service organizations operating in Srinagar, J&K (University of Kashmir, S.K.I.M.S Hospital & J&K Bank). After preliminary analysis, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was carried out and three dimensional factor structure of organizational citizenship behavior was revealed. The reliability and validity of the brief version of the scale was found to be satisfactory, thereby providing support for the relevance of using this scale in the Asian context.
