Psychological climate and its relationship to employee engagement and organizational citizenship behaviors

by Thayer, Stacy E., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2008, 98 pages; 3304164


This study investigated the relationship among psychological climate, employee engagement, and organizational citizenship behaviors. Brown and Leigh's measure of psychological climate, Lee and Allen's measure of organizational citizenship behavior, and Development Dimensions International's E3 Survey of Employee Engagement were used to assess these constructs. A correlational analysis determined a positive relationship between psychological climate and employee engagement and organizational citizenship. The data did not find a significant relationship between employee engagement and organizational citizenship, as was predicted. The results of this study supported the theory that a healthy psychological climate will increase levels of employee engagement and organizational citizenship.
